Best Cars for Golfers

If golf is your passion, you'll need a car to accommodate it, as it's a hobby that comes with a lot of gear: multiple clubs, countless balls, folding trolleys, club attire - the list goes on and on. But this is golf we're talking about, and even in 2014 there is an air of prestige that remains. So you need style and sophistication, as well as size and practicality. It's a tall order, but we think we've got you covered.

Ford Mondeo: 20,000+

OK, so it's not the flashest option; its even got an aura of humdrum about it. But it's reliable and it's spacey, which are two important aspects of a decent golfing car. Its 537L boot is roomy and a useful square shape so your kit will easily fit. The boot is completely flat, so say goodbye to cramming. Plus, if it's going to double up as a family car you couldn't pick better; the Mondeo received a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. Not to mention placing a respectable 56th (out of 150) in the 2013 Drive Power survey. Safe, sturdy and practical. We think the mondeo is a solid choice for any golfing family man.

Honda S2000: 10,000+

If you want sports car aesthetics on a budget, this is the one for you. Unlike most other sports cars, you will be able to get your clubs in and still have a space for your caddy (hey, we can dream)! And can anything beat pulling into your club, top down in the glorious sunshine, anticipating the round of your life? No. Unfortunately, the S2000 stopped production in 2009, but you could pick up a second hand one for around 10,000. The perfect choice for someone who wants a bit of golfing glamour on a budget.

Ford Kuga: 21,000+

This beast of a machine will handle all your gear with ease; in fact, its 456L boot will positively swallow your bag whole if you're not careful. It's available in four-wheel drive for extra grip, but you could get away with two-wheel drive if you're just taking it to easy to reach courses. Plus you'll benefit from better fuel economy. We consider the option of 'Keyless Opening' mandatory for golfers. Simply open the boot by waving your foot under it, with the keys remaining in your pocket - ideal for unloading your golfing gear after a long round. Inside you'll have access to a built-in reversing camera, panoramic sunroof and heated leather seats for warming yourself up after a chilly 18 holes.

Citroen DS5: 23,000+

Luxury with a hint of sci-fi; that sums up the Citroen DS5. With its space-age capsule exterior and seriously revved up interior styling, this is a great option if you want to make a statement at the club. But it's not a case of style over substance - oh no - easy to drive with plenty of power, the DS5 screams quality. Plus it's 465L boot will easily fit your golf paraphernalia in. And, if you want to go green, opt for the hybrid option, which won the Best Eco Car 2012 from the Scottish Car of the Year.
