Have you recently found yourself daydreaming about cruising around in a shiny new or new-to-you golf cart and want to know the benefits? If so, you're in the right place!
With a multitude of uses, a golf cart can be so beneficial to you. Whether you'll be using it strictly for golf, hauling feed around your farm or simply riding around your neighborhood or retirement community, a golf cart can truly make life sweet!
First, let's talk about the perks of owning a golf cart. We call this the “Triple A”:
Golf carts, new and used, are very affordable all around. A brand new golf cart with all of the bells and whistles, on average, costs just a couple thousand. If you choose to go the used route, which most people do, it can be considerably cheaper. While some used golf carts can be in the thousands, they generally run in the hundreds, with all the bells and whistles and are just as good as a brand new cart.
The parts, maintenance and up-keep on a golf cart is super affordable as well, with most parts starting as low as just a couple of dollars. Also, if you should ever need to take your golfcart to a tech, repairman or golf-cart repair shop, it costs considerably less than that of a full size automotive repair shop. You would also be surprised to know that many of your neighbors, especially in a golf cart community, are very handy and repair golf carts as a hobby in their retirement and generally charge even less than a shop, and if you're lucky, they might even do it for free!
All around, a golf cart is just super affordable and can be very easy on your wallet!
Fuel Savings: You will save a tremendous amount of money on gas when you own a golf cart. Since most golf carts are powered solely by electricity, you will have no need to buy fuel to use them at all. So, if you use your golf cart to get around your community or surrounding nearby areas, the only time you would need to purchase gas/fuel, is when you drive your full size car.
Operation: Golf Carts are super easy and carefree to operate. You just turn the key, put your foot on the gas, and you’re off! Nothing complicated or majorly involved to make the cart move. This is probably one of the most popular aspects of a golf cart. The ease of operation is great for older folks, all the way down to the grandkids!
Maneuverability: Golf carts are easy to maneuver. You will find no need to worry about handling a big vehicle like a full size car. When you drive a golf cart, you can easily make it around those tight turns and squeeze into those smaller parking spots, no problem!
For The Love Of Fun: All around, golf-carts are a ton of fun. If you live in or are considering moving into a golf cart community such as The Villages, Florida or Sun City, Arizona, you will definitely want to own a golfcart. Many communities that cater to golf cart owners have fun festivals, parades, shows, picnics, potlucks etc. for folks to enjoy. But all in all: Cruising in your cart on a sunny day with a cold beverage in your hand? It doesn’t get any better than that!
If you’re the adventurous type, you’ll definitely want to own a golf cart! Throw a set of some durable, all-terrain tires on, a heavy duty lift kit and some other rugged features and take your golf cart on off-road adventures! You’ll love exploring the great outdoors with friends and family and still have more than enough room to haul/carry your hunting and fishing gear AND a Golf Cart Cooler full of drinks and food to fuel you along your way. With hours of affordable entertainment, this new way to enjoy nature in your golf-cart is sure to make for a great time!
"Reasons That Go Beyond The Green"
Not just for the course anymore! Golf carts make excellent 'at-work' vehicles. Many businesses are starting to invest in fleets of golf carts as golf carts have many features that help employees and crew-members get the job done. With many features like Golf Cart Cargo Bins, storage areas, fold down beds and other Golf Cart Accessories, a golf cart can be essential in your day to day life, especially if you are hauling equipment, materials, etc. frequently on a daily basis.
There are many businesses where golf carts are essential to employees. Just to name a few:
- School And College Campuses
- Retirement Communities
- Stables, Farms and Equestrian Centers
- Country Clubs
- Parks And Recreational Grounds
- Military Bases
And so many more!
So, as you can see, you really don’t have to live on a golf course to enjoy the perks of owning a golf cart. In this day and age, the golf cart is used in many different settings both for work AND for play.
Golf carts are a great solution for folks that are disabled or have a bit of a hard time getting around. We speak with so many customers daily who use their golf cart to get around their property, run up to the store, tend to their gardens, run their dogs, get their mail from the mailbox, even run their horses!
Just because you might have a bit of trouble getting around or maybe don’t feel 100% comfortable driving a full-size vehicle, doesn’t mean you should be or feel bound. Because golf carts are so carefree, a cart for our disabled friends helps to open a whole new world of possibilities and newfound independence.
Disabled Veterans, young and old, also benefit greatly from golf carts. With thousands upon thousands of disabled Veterans around the country, a golf cart can be so helpful for a multitude of reasons. There are so many wonderful programs available for disabled Veterans to receive Free Golf Carts as well.
On the other end of the spectrum, if you have a golf cart that you no longer use or are looking to get rid of, you can Donate Your Golf Cart to various different programs to be given to a disabled Veteran.
