What Are The Best Speakers for Golf Cart?
Portable golf speakers are ideal if you want to listen to music while – hopefully – hitting those pars and birdies. One of the best is the Ampcaddy Bluetooth speaker, which is really easy to attach, simple to set up, and, just as importantly, has excellent sound.
There are no complicated procedures for turning it on, and you don’t need to be a tech expert. Accessing Bluetooth is easy, as is pairing the device, and then it’s as simple as hitting the power button.
I don’t need so much bass that the golf cart shakes, nor do I expect the absolute best quality sound, but that said, the Ampcaddy Bluetooth speaker has excellent sound. Plus, I played two rounds of golf and was able to use it continuously, thanks to the quick charging lithium battery.
Track selection and volume are both controlled easily from the unit, and with Bluetooth, the Ampcaddy connects to any wireless device, including your phone. Your phone can stay in your bag as long as you have your playlist programmed. If you play golf in the rain, as I do, you’ll be happy to hear that the Ampcaddy is weatherproof, and be sure to check out our .
I like the speaker facing inwards towards me, positioned on the side of my golf cart, although others may have different preferences. Another nice feature of the Ampcaddy Bluetooth speaker is the swivel mount, which lets you put the speaker exactly where you want it. It’s a surprisingly simple piece of design, yet extremely useful. When playing, it allows me to talk to my companions and focus on the shot at hand, while listening to music but without being too distracted.
Can you Play Music on the Golf Course?
A lot of people play golf because they see it as relaxing. When someone asks: “Can you play music on the golf course?” the answer is that some courses are less likely to enforce etiquette than others. But, open-air music is generally discouraged in competitive play.
A specific rule of competitive games, rule 14-3a to be exact, insists that extra golf equipment cannot be used to improve stroke performance. If music is considered an artificial psychological aide, then it might fall under the definition of an unacceptable assisting device. It is not quite the same as using a launch monitor or electronics to improve positioning or to determine wind speed, but it can make a decisive impact.
Competitive players do use electronic devices routinely to check on official updates about their game or others. A meditative device is known to have a calming or centering effect. It ultimately boils down to the ruling made by the course owner, general manager, or competition committee.
Playing music out loud is a distraction to other players. It is less intrusive to use a headset, and there are no such prohibitions against listening to closed music while practicing. Stricter rules almost always apply to sponsored games.
