Is a Golf Cart the Ultimate Dad Gift?

Posted in Golf Carts

Whether it is Christmas, a birthday or Father’s Day, dads are notoriously difficult to surprise with a good gift. For some reason, these male pillars of strength, advice and support are not easy to find a gift that really tickles their fancy. For the next special occasion that requires a gift for your dad, here is an idea. Consider buying him a golf cart. This is not just for golfers – many people can use a golf cart for personal transportation. Here are some dads that might appreciate their own golf cart.

  • Campers and RV owners. Have a dad that spends weeks traveling from campground to campground in their RV or just camps on the weekends? Golf carts are excellent for campgrounds, giving dad a quick way to jet down to the water or up to the campground store.
  • Retirement living. If your dad is retired and lives in a retirement community, a golf cart with a street legal kit could be an excellent gift. Dad can get around the neighborhood and to the clubhouse with an economical cart.
  • Dads that like to hunt, trap shoot or just go out in the woods to enjoy nature can use a golf cart. Choose a more rugged, gas model for longer trips into the wilderness.
  • Of course, if dad is a golfer, a golf cart is a perfect gift, especially if he doesn’t already have one of his own.

Golf carts are affordable and you can find quality used models at your local dealer. Next time it comes time to find the ultimate gift for dad, stop by and check out the possibilities at your local golf cart dealer.

Save Money by Buying a Used Golf Cart

Posted in Golf Carts

Have you been considering buying a golf cart but not sure you can afford a new model? Buying a used golf cart might be the right option for you. Whether you want it for the golf course, as personal transportation or for excursions into the woods, you can find many used golf carts that still have many miles left to go. However, you want to make sure you get a cart that has been well maintained and is worth the investment. Here are some tips to find a quality used golf cart for a good price.

  • Buy from a golf cart dealer. Don’t take your chances buying a used golf cart from a private owner. Many quality golf cart dealers sell both new and used golf carts. Ask whether their used carts have undergone maintenance or inspections before they are put up for sale.
  • Electric models. For electric models, make sure to find out the age of the batteries. These are one of the most expensive parts to replace, so if the cart will need new batteries soon, take that into consideration with the price.
  • Ask for maintenance records. Golf carts, like all vehicles, need regular maintenance for the best performance. If you are buying from a dealer, there is a good chance the cart was traded in for a new golf cart purchase from an existing client. Ask if the maintenance records are available so you know exactly what has been done on the vehicle.

You can save thousands of dollars buying a quality used golf cart that can still last for years. Contact your local golf cart dealer that offers used carts for sale to find out what is available in your area.

Choosing Between a Gas or Electric Golf Cart

Posted in Golf Carts

The biggest choice you need to make when buying a golf cart is whether you want a gas or electric model. Although there are many other options to consider, this is the biggest differentiator between types of carts. Both are used in many types of applications, including as recreation vehicles, for businesses and even for on-road transportation. Here are the basics on each to help you choose between the power options on your new golf cart.

Electric Golf Carts

Electric golf carts depend on a battery for power versus gas. This means they run on a charge and must be recharged between uses. Like any electric vehicle, you must consider how far you plan to go when using an electric golf cart. For a day out on the course or for use around your property, an electric cart is perfect. However, for a long day out on the trails, you may run out of a charge. A few other factors to consider about electric models:

  • Electric golf carts tend to cost less than gas models
  • You must have a place to charge the vehicle
  • Low maintenance, with batteries needing to be replaced every 5-6 years

Gas-Powered Golf Carts

Gas powered carts are more similar to the combustion engines that power most vehicles, just smaller. You will have higher horsepower options than an electric cart and it is more conducive to adding more features like stereos, heating and cooling options since they won’t drain the battery you need for power. For anyone planning on using their cart for trips of more than 25 miles or for more than 2 hours of continuous use, a gas powered cart is a better option.

Talk to your local golf cart retailer to learn more about the pros and cons between gas and electric golf carts to determine which is best for your needs.
