Can you carry golf clubs in the Ford Edge?

Golf clubs will usually fit at an angle in the cargo space, so there is no need to lower the second-row seats.

Another option is to lower the second-row seats or just one side of them so the clubs can lay full length.

A standard sheet of plywood is four feet wide by eight feet long.  With the second-row folded down, a sheet of plywood will fit at an angle over one of the wheel housings.  The difficulty is that it will also extend two-feet out of the back of the vehicle. This is doable for short drives as long as the liftgate is locked or manually strapped in place.

Does the Liftgate Lock in place on the Ford Edge?

The power liftgates can be controlled with a remote. If the car is unlocked, the power liftgate has a foot sensor that will power open the liftgate when you move your foot beneath the license plate. Remember to step back as the door comes up toward you.
