A golf cart allows you to travel in comfort and style, but it also lets you focus on your game rather than the chore of hauling your bag, clubs, and all of the little extras along the fairways. Picking the right golf car for you really comes down to a few simple choices:
  • Start by deciding whether to buy a new or used golf cart. Golf carts typically do not accumulate too many miles. Add to this the fact that many are customized for the first buyer and that when the passion wears off, the owner buys a new custom model, and you will realize there are many are excellent values in the resale market.
  • Next, choose between gas or electric powered carts. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Generally speaking, a gas powered cart is noisier and more troublesome to fill-up, but they don't require a long recharge period and are more powerful -- important if you are going to be carrying a full cart up steep hills. If you do decide on a gas powered cart, check with the pro shop at your favorite course before you buy just to be sure that they have no restrictions on gas powered carts.
  • Look for safety features such as an ignition key, automatic brakes to keep the cart from rolling down the hill, and a design that discourages roll over.
  • Finally, decide on the number of seats, either two or four. You should also consider the durability of the seat covers since they are exposed to the sun and weather and the abuse from riders constantly sliding in and out of them.
To settle on your final selection, check the floor and bag lining areas for protection against rough service. You don't want the cleats on your shoes to mar the interior the first time you use it. You also don't want it to be a tough job to clean your cart of the dirt and cut grass you will track into it from the course.


Look over the baskets, cups, and storage areas -- remember the main purpose is to haul your gear around, so you should be able to get to it conveniently. Get a car top only if you plan to play in particulary sunny climates or often run into foul weather.
