4 of the Best Golf Cart Bluetooth Speakers in 2023
This was updated in February 2023 to adjust pricing and add the Blue Tees Player Speaker as our best overall pick.
These days, I’ve got music going during most of the rounds of golf I play.
I’m a casual golfer.
I mean, I golf a lot. But casually.
I very rarely play tournaments, there are usually a couple beers involved, and aside from my duties reviewing products for Breaking Eighty, my whole goal with golf is to have fun.
And music helps with that.
I get it, music on the golf course isn’t for everyone. But if you’re a fan of Breaking Eighty, chances are you don’t take things too seriously, and you also enjoy some tunes on the course.
So today we’re looking at the best bluetooth speakers for golf.
Whether you’re looking for a golf cart bluetooth speaker or one you can clip to your bag, we’re going to cover the best options out there, and I’ll give you some insights into my personal favorite golf Bluetooth speakers.
Best Golf Cart Bluetooth Speaker: Blue Tees Player Golf Speaker
Here’s the deal, many of the other “golf Bluetooth speakers” on this list have more tech and more features, as you’ll see.
But when it comes to my personal favorite speaker on the golf course? I’m going with the Blue Tees Player.
There’s a few reasons for this.
The biggest of which are that I think it sounds the best, it gets the loudest, and it has the best Bluetooth range from any of the ones I’ve tried.
Downside? There’s no built-in GPS. But I’ve found for many golfers that can get in the way, and isn’t worth the hassle.
It has an incredibly strong magnet for connecting it to a cart as well.
Overall, I’m really impressed by the first speaker offering from Blue Tees.
Looking for a versatile golf speaker that won't break the bank? The new Player Speaker is our favorite golf Bluetooth speaker - especially if you ride in a cart.
Most Versatile Golf Bluetooth Speaker: Bushnell Wingman
This might seem like the most minor addition of features, but it makes a big difference: a hook.
On the bottom of the Bushnell Wingman, there’s a little loop hook that you can use to clip the Wingman to your bag. It also has a built-in magnet for attaching the device to a golf cart.
The Precision Pro Ace doesn’t have that hook, and honestly, because of this there isn’t a great way to use it if you’re carrying your bag.
So if you’re someone who often switches off between carrying and riding, the Wingman may be the better option.
Sound quality and Bluetooth range are similar on both the Precision Pro and Bushnell.
In January 2023, Bushnell also announced the new “Wingman View” and “Wingman Mini” speakers, which we’re excited to review soon. We’ll update this when we do.
Best Golf Bluetooth Speaker for Walkers: JBL Clip 3
While the JBL Clip 3 wasn’t specifically made for golfers, it might as well have been.
This doesn’t have all of the extra golf GPS features as the previous two devices we mentioned, but it does have two very good features going for it:
Size and Price.
The Clip 3 is tiny, and as the name suggests, it has a carabiner built into the design which allows you to clip it to…well, anything!
If you’re a walking golfer who carries their clubs, this is an extremely lightweight and unobtrusive Bluetooth speaker that works perfectly, without the added complication of having to pair it to an app.
There’s a newer version out in the Clip 4, but considering you can get the 3 for under $50? I’m not sure there’s a huge reason to upgrade.
It may not techncially be a "golf speaker" but it might as well be. No speaker has the same combo of sound quality, convenience for golfers, and price, as the JBL Clip 3. This is a no brainer.
Another Solid Option: Precision Pro Ace Speaker
Over the last year or two Precision Pro has been closing the gap on industry veteran Bushnell in more ways than one.
Bushnell essentially created a whole new market when they released their golf speaker the Wingman in 2020.
Precision Pro took some cues from the Wingman, but also added a few extra features that specifically make it a better option as a golf cart Bluetooth speaker.
Specifically, it has an LCD screen with GPS distances to the front back and center of the green. You can use the powerful magnet, stick it right on the golf cart, and not only listen to your tunes, but you’ve got solid GPS data as well.
The new Wingman View which was just announced from Bushnell, and will give this a run for it’s money.
But if you’re in the Precision Pro Ec0-System, then this is a great option. As of February 2023, they’ve also knocked the price down from $149 to $99 making it an especially good value.
Final Thoughts On Golf Bluetooth Speakers
Obviously, there are dozens of Bluetooth speakers out there.
And you can certainly take your standard Bose, or even Sonos speaker, throw it in your bag, and use it on the course.
But if you’re looking for added versatility specifically for making music easier to enjoy while golfing? These are the speakers we’ve found to be the best for that.
