Throughout the country there are several communities where golf carts reign supreme as the primary mode of transportation. From the Villages in Florida to Sun City, Arizona, many of these master planned communities are 55 plus retirement enclaves are meccas for golf carts. golf cart community

  1. Fuel efficiency- whether your cart is driven by a gas or electric motor, golf carts are just cheaper to run than the average car. The lightweight construction and slower speeds really reduce the cost compared to commuting with a car everyday.
  1. No insurance requirement– In most states golf carts aren’t required to be insured. This cost can really add up over time. Although if you own a tricked out ride that you want covered in case it gets stolen or smashed by a drunken retiree it might be a good idea to pick up an insurance policy.
  1. No license requirement– This might be good for you or not but usually you can drive you golf cart without a license. Whether you gave up driving a car but still want the freedom to get around or the judge says you can’t drive for 6-12 months a golfgolf cart neighborhood cart might be a good solution.Trading you car in for a golf cart can make a lot of sense if everything you need is a cart ride away. With the rise of apps like Uber, even those rare occasions where you need a ride to the airport or out in town are now a breeze. We compiled a list for you of reasons why golf carts are superior
  1. Cost for a custom ride– If you ever want a 32 Ford coupe but didn’t want to pay the 50k for a totally custom one, a replica golf custom golf cartcart coupe will only cost you a few thousand. Although you wont be hitting triple digit speeds or sending up clouds of burning tire smoke a custom golf cart is well within the reach of most people. Any car style can be made by one of the many custom golf cart shops for a reasonable budget.
  1. Garage space– A one car garage can fit a whole fleet of four golf carts. This means you can save money by downsizing on your two car garage requirement and flip that money saved into creating your dream cart.
  1. Just more fun– Probably the most important reason on the list. Golf carts are just more enjoyable to drive than regular cars. There is a freedom that comes with cruising around without doors and the wind in your hair. Parking is a breeze too once your ready to call it a day.

The idea of getting rid of your traditional car and switching only to a golf cart household may seem radical but tens of thousands of people are going without the burden of owning a car. If you have a short commute or are thinking about retiring, a golf cart community might be a decision to consider.

We get questions all the time from current or potential golf cart owners so we compiled a list of the most frequent ones below.

What are the most popular accessories for my golf cart?

  • Unless you want to get crazy and go for a fully customized golf cart, the three best selling accessories would be a rear flip down seat, an overhead stereo console, a high quality enclosure that let you drive in the rain. Click on any of the links to see how we rated the accessories that are on the market today.

How long does my electric golf cart need to be charged for?

  • Usually overnight which is about 8 hours but it depends on the age of you batteries and how low the charge on them is. Just plug your cart in before bed and your ready to go in the morning.

What is legally required to make my golf cart street legal?

  • Depends on the state but usually it includes adding: turn signals, brake lights, head lights, taillights, seat belts, a horn, a windshield with wipers and a license plate. Just call your local DMV to get the facts straight from the source. Amazon has a good selection of street legal kits that contain everything needed to get you on the road.

What is the best way to keep my golf cart protected from the weather?

  • Two common options that will depend on what you want
  • Option 1: If you still want to drive, a full enclosure is an easy solution. These are retractable and will allow you to drive in the rain or snow if you really want to. This are fitted for your particular model of golf cart and can be fully waterproof. Check out the best enclosure for your golf cart that we reviewed.
  • Option 2: is a cover, this is the cheaper option but you will not be able to drive as this is essentially just a fancy fitted tarp for your golf cart. This offers complete protection from the rain and sun. If you plan on storing your cart outside for any length of time this option is for you. Click Here to find out how we ranked the covers that are on the market today.

Is a gas or electric golf cart better?

  • This is a personal choice and will depend on how you use your golf cart, rules where you live and what kind of terrain you will be driving in. Both options will provide you with a reliable ride that is cheap to drive around in. Gas carts usually have a range of 200 plus miles per tank ,while electric is usually less than 30 miles per charge. Electric carts are very quiet and non polluting so if this is a major selling point than go electric.

Can I customize my golf cart?

  • Yes, if you can think of it, a good custom golf cart shop can make your dream a reality. There are golf carts that look like classic pickups, fire trucks, Hummer h1s, Rolls Royce coupes and anything else you can think of has probably been done. Depending on the options you want you can spend as much as you want.

Once you have decided to buy that new golf cart you have a few decisions to make. One of the biggest is the engine type which will be either a gas powered engine or an electric one. The market for both new and used carts in the US is enormous so you have plenty of options on engine, manufacturer and price. Both have been around for decades and parts are readily available for each one so how you are going to use your new golf cart will determine which makes the most sense.

Gas carts are powered by a traditional combustion engine and generally have a lot more power than their electric counterparts. If you are thinking about adding a lot of accessories like lights and a serious sound system the power generated by a gas cart will meet your needs. These carts will perform better than their counterparts in hilly or rough terrain and are less likely to leave you stranded. Gas powered carts will have the same maintenance requirements as a regular car such as oil and filter changes. This will be your best option if you drive a lot of miles or ride around with a lot of people. There is not need to remember to charge your cart at night, simply fill it up like a regular car and your are set for a couple hundred miles.

Electric carts are a great option for you if you drive only a few miles a day or like a silent ride. Electric engines are very reliable and require minimal maintenance. As long as you keep the batteries charged they would generally last several years before the batteries need to be replaced. These carts are usually better for the environment with no emissions when they are being driven. Electric carts are usually several hundred dollars cheaper when they are purchased new and the biggest expense will be a complete replacement of the batteries which will be several hundred dollars.

 

These are just a few factors to think about before your big purchase. There are plenty of custom options for each engine style to give you more power or a longer range. With a booming custom golf cart market, there is no shortage of quality carts with either engine for sale. Either choice will give you reliability and a great way to cruise around.
