The X9 Follow is the latest generation of the multi-award winning X-Series from Stewart Golf. Originally launched in 2003 as the X1 Remote, the X-Series is recognised as one of the world's finest remote controlled machines.
The X9 Follow is specifically designed as a Follow golf trolley, but as well as its “Follow” mode, the X9 Follow also comes with full remote control functionality that existing customers will be familiar with.
• Bluetooth Technology • Rechargeable Lithium Handset • Complete Remote Functionality • Downhill Braking • Integrated Stabiliser • V3 Wheel Set (non-metallic) • Quick release rear wheels • Lithium Battery & Charger • Warranty: 24 months • Towel Clip • Scorecard Holder & Pencil Clip • Three golf ball holders • Four tee holders • Unique serial number plaque • Adjustable handset cradle • Anti-rotation bag straps • Quick release strap handles
Want to demo the X9 Follow?
The X9 Follow is now available to demo from either of the American Golf tour trucks. Covering the whole of the country you can now try out the X9 Follow in your local American Golf store.

How It Works
The Follow system
In addition to the bluetooth electronics system, there are two further antennas that power the X9 Follow.
Mounted on each of the rear motors, the two antennas work together to create two zones; a neutral zone and an active zone.
When the handset is inside the neutral zone, the X9 Follow will remain stationary. As the handset enters the active zone, the X9 Follow's electronics system will automatically & independently alter the speed of each rear motor to keep its pace. When the golfer (and therefore the handset) come to a stop, the X9 Follow will continue until the handset is back inside the neutral zone when it will also stop. The effect is that of digital elastic band, which stretches and contracts as you walk.
• Practically the system is designed to be as user friendly as possible, so use is as simple as:
• Press the green 'follow' button and walk in front of the X9 Follow. The machine will fall in behind you and keep your walking pace.
• When you reach your ball & stop, the X9 Follow will also stop.
• Put the handset on the cradle, select your club and take your shot.
• Replace your club, put the handset back on your back pocket/belt and resume walking.
• The X9 Follow will again pick up your pace.
• If you stop for any reason (such as to let another player take a shot), the X9 Follow will stop behind you automatically. When you are ready, just start walking again and the X9 Follow will start again automatically.
When you are approaching the tee or finding your ball in the long grass you may want to switch your X9 Follow into remote mode so you can send it off in your desired direction.
To switch to remote mode all you have to do is press any of the directional buttons on the handset and full remote control functionality will be available. From up to 50m you can speed the machine up and down, steer it left or right and stop it using either the orange 'glide stop' or red 'emergency stop' buttons. If you prefer to have the machine in front of you sometimes, you have the option of setting two 'cruise control' speeds to suit your walking pace.
Once you are back in the Active Zone, you can switch back to Follow mode by pressing the green Follow button.
In car parks or on paths, place the handset onto the cradle and set the trolley to travel at a constant speed by pressing either the forward button or one of the programmable cruise control buttons.
Using this method of steering over Remote or Follow will give you greater control over the trolley, ensuring you avoid any accidental collisions.

• In laboratory conditions over 250 simulated golf cycles, the battery can be expected to lose 15% capacity. • The battery can be expect to lose 2-3% capacity per year through cell degradation, compared with a lead/acid battery which can lose 8-9% per year. • During testing of the battery with the Stewart Golf X-Series , its average use was 12-15Ah of the 20Ah battery per round of golf.

Stewart X9 Follow Golf Trolley.
I’ve been playing golf at a high level for over 50 years and I would say that the X9 Follow is the one of the best bits of golf kit I have used.
So far, it’s been excellent. It takes a bit of getting used to but once you’ve got the hang of it, it’s a joy.
I have back and elbow pain that, over the years, has stopped me from playing but with this trolley I can walk upright and not have the strain on my arms that I used to get steering my old electric trolley. It’s a bit like having a caddy to do all the hard work.
However, the lack of an umbrella holder and a gimballed drinks holder, like almost all other electric trollies have available, is a real shame. I can’t believe that Stewart sell a, relatively expensive, umbrella holder and then tell you that it shouldn’t be used to hold an open umbrella!! You are advised to only use the follow feature in open spaces so in tight spaces, if it’s raining, you have to steer and control the speed of the trolley, which can take both hands, while somehow holding your umbrella. Come on Stewart Golf, sort this out.
I haven’t had any problems with the trolley although I have seen a number of reviews critical of its reliability and of customer support, I guess only time will tell for me.
In summary, I love it and if I can have a drinks holder (I believe they have one planned) and an umbrella holder that’s fit for purpose I’ll love it even more.

Super piece of kit
This is my 2nd Stewart trolley, the first being the X9 Remote. I am so impressed with the service and product quality. The X9Follow is ingenious and whilst somewhat more expensive than the competition, it makes up for it in overall quality, responsiveness and ease of use. It took me one round to get used to the follow mode and has made every round since, very enjoyable.
Giulio2nd Jan 2017
Really wonderful product. Sometimes the connection is missed (more or less one time a game). I switch off the trolley and after one minute it works perfectly again. Incredible how it follows you in any part of the court!!
Glenn Ewing17th Nov 2016
Does exactly what is says on the tin. Just a few teething problems whilst getting used to it, but a fantastic piece off kit to use. Just like having someone carry your clubs.

It allows me to focus more on the Golf!

Changing your enjoyment of the game
Play on a very hilly course and having played just a few rounds with the X9 Follow it's completely changed every round. So much easier to get around and feel almost like you now have a caddie for each round (without the technical help though) helping you enjoy the game so much more. One of my best every golf purchases.

Love It. Love It.
Even my worst shots are forgot the moment my X9 follow springs to life.
Adds a whole new dimension of fun to a game I already love.
Every self respecting gadget freak has got to get one.
Neil Stewart7th Nov 2015
Yes this is expensive but it really makes playing golf a pleasure and even more fun.
All the standard features are excellent but the follow feature is very special. On the fairway it so relaxing walking along and talking to your partner knowing that your trolley is following faithfully behind.
If this product proves durable ( which it should for the price ) then I will be absolutely delighted with the purchase.

A bit better in all respects
Took delivery of the new "X9 Follow" (with lithium battery) and a few days later tried it out in earnest at Brancaster. My previous X9 had the old heavy lead battery with large (treadless) wheels but I was quite satisfied generally. The new one is slicker, packs away in the old cover without having to remove the wheels and of course the lithium battery is a joy to lug around; what is more the steering on the new version is much more effective/sensitive. The "follow" feature is fun but often the trolley breaks away to chase rabbits so I don't think I'll be using it very much. I tested the battery life over 2 rounds and it died on me after 35 holes; I know only 18 holes/1 round is guaranteed but a lithium battery should be capable of 2 rounds. Having to charge the remote control every time is also a bit of a bore but on the plus side the blue tooth functionality means that the trolley stops when it goes "out of range" whereas before it kept on going regardless.
So "a bit better in all respects" just about sums it up. I am a great supporter of the company and hope it continues to prosper.

Worthy Successor to the X7
Happily owned an X7 Lithium for 4 years before taking up the impressive trade-in offered. Very happy with the X9 Follow. Follow function will take some getting used to but it's certainly an attention grabber!
Congratulations Stewart Golf, another great product.
Andy Whalley17th Jun 2015
Well not a lot else can be said about the build quality and technology that goes into your X9, what other purchasers may find useful is this. My course plays 7300 plus yards from the back tee, there is approx a mile of tee to green footpath, that is 9000 yards that the battery happily moves my X9 around, with what seems to be plenty of power left. Should easily get me around the course when winter returns.

My new X9 Follow is an awesome machine
I received this week my new X9 Follow from Stewart Golf. It is an awesome machine. The designers and technicians from Stewart Golf did a super job. It does not only have the looks of a high end trolley, it is THE high end trolley .It is extremely well build and it functions completely according to my very high expectations. The trolley is not the cheapest on the market, that is true, but for this one, I don’t have the feeling at all that I paid too much. I really feel happy with the exceptional value I got for my money. Design, functionality and quality seldom come together in one product, but this time they definitely do! This trolley makes me even more enjoy the sport I love.
