Golf Cart Rental: Essential for the Destination Wedding

Posted in Golf Carts

You plan every detail of your wedding, from the flowers and cake to the perfect venue and caterer. However, if your venue is a beach or a rural, rustic farm, there is one more detail you might want to add to your list: golf cart rental. Most destination weddings involve your guests hiking through sand or fields to where you will exchange vows with your bride or groom. For some elderly or disabled guests, enjoying your nuptials may not be possible. Make sure everyone on your guest list can make your destination wedding with golf cart rental.

Anyone who has been to a beach or nature wedding has most likely experienced the small trek to the ceremony spot. Whether you are going over dunes to the beach or down a dirt trail to a back field, this is not easy terrain for many people. Injuries, arthritis and other health conditions can make it a disappointing day for your loved ones that cannot make the hike. Renting a golf cart to transport your guests from the parking area to the ceremony and reception is a courteous, and appreciated, gesture.

Since all rentals can get booked during the busy wedding season, you want to reserve your golf carts early. Call a golf cart rental place near your destination wedding to reserve your cart or carts. Rental golf carts come in many sizes and options. Be sure to ask about enclosures for your cart if there is a possibility of wet or windy weather. Also, plan to have designated drivers to manage the golf carts and bring guests to and from the wedding celebrations.

Adding a golf cart rental to your wedding plans can ensure that everyone has a wonderful time on your special day and can attend the festivities. Make sure to add it to your wedding list.

Golf Carts: The Ultimate Wedding Rental

Posted in Golf Carts

Destination weddings are all the rage right now, with many ending up on rustic farms or on a private beach. These are wonderful settings, a nice change from the boring indoor weddings in chapels or other traditional wedding venues. However, there is one drawback to these natural destinations – they are not easily accessible. Women in high heels and grandparents with bad knees can have a difficult time reaching the spot of your planned nuptials. You need a transportation plan that will accommodate your guests.

Golf carts are the perfect solution for the destination wedding. While you may have considered every little detail of your special day, many do not consider this option. Yet it makes sense to ensure your guests’ safety and comfort. A few good reasons to rent one or more golf carts for your big day in a remote location:

  • You don’t want someone tripping on a clump of hay or falling down a dune on your wedding day. Golf carts provide a safe ride for those in dress shoes or with disabilities.
  • Comfort. A long walk to the ceremony area can be difficult for your older guests. Consider their comfort and offer them a soft seat to ride on to your wedding.
  • Bragging rights. Everyone wants their wedding to be special. Having a well-organized wedding with all the right elements in place, including golf carts with drivers, will give you bragging rights.

Before you say “I do,” head to your local golf cart dealer and inquire about rentals for your big day. Make sure to plan to have designated drivers to haul your guests to and from your destination wedding location.

Need a Golf Cart? Five Things to Consider Before You Rent

Posted in Golf Carts

Golf carts or utility carts are not just for the golf course anymore. Event planners, commercial enterprises and recreational enthusiasts often find themselves in need of a golf cart for the day or weekend. Renting a cart or several is a great way to facilitate your occasional need for convenient transportation without the expense of buying or maintenance. But before you rent a golf cart for your next sporting event, wedding or party, here are five things to consider.

  1. Gas or electric? Most golf carts come in both electric and gas models. Electric models are great for short trips over a few hours; however, longer trips or extended use may require a gas model.
  2. Size. Golf carts come in a wide variety of sizes, from small two-person models to large utility carts that can carry six or more people.
  3. Weight limits. Are you hauling luggage or equipment as well as people? Ask your golf cart rental store about weight limits on your cart and whether they have carts with cargo space.
  4. Street legal. Do you plan on using your cart on the road? Check the laws where you plan to use your cart and make sure you rent a model that has a street legal kit.
  5. Quantity and types. You don’t have to rent just one type of golf cart. Consider getting different sizes and types of carts to cover all your needs for your event.

Not sure what kind of golf cart you need? Call your local golf cart rental store to find out what models are available and explain your needs. They can match you with the right cart for every situation.

5 Popular Reasons for Renting a Golf Cart

Posted in Golf Carts

Have you ever rented a golf cart? If you golf, then there is a good chance you have. But did you know that golf cart rentals are available for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with golf? Golf carts are the perfect option for personal transportation at many events, making it an ideal rental item. Here are five popular reasons people rent a golf cart when they aren’t heading to the golf course.

  1. Weddings. Wedding season is also rental golf cart season. Destination weddings are popular, but not all guests can walk through the dunes to the beach. Golf carts are great for transporting guests that need help getting to the ceremony.
  2. Camping trips. Golf carts are an excellent option when staying at a large campground. Make traveling around the campground easy for everyone with a golf cart rental for your trip.
  3. Sporting events. Want to enjoy a day out trap shooting or hunting but walking miles is out of the question? Golf carts or a more rugged utility cart rental is a perfect way to get where you want to go.
  4. Corporate events. Is your business hosting a company picnic or a client event? Rent golf carts to help bring your guests from the parking area to the event area.
  5. Parties. Graduations, anniversaries and any kind of big party event is a perfect time to rent a golf cart. Don’t make older guests walk blocks to get to the party; have golf carts available to bring your guest to and from the party in style and comfort.

Next time you need easy, comfortable personal transportation, call your local golf cart dealer and ask about golf cart rentals. It is an easy, affordable way to make your next event the best it can be.

5 Reasons to Rent a Golf Cart This Summer

Posted in Golf Carts

Even if golf isn’t your game, renting a golf cart can still be a benefit during your summer activities. These useful recreational vehicles have moved off the course and have become a great way to offer transportation for many outdoor events. Here are five ways you can use golf carts to make the most of this summer.

Camping. Most campgrounds are on several acres, with many activities spread out from one end of the complex to another. For your next camping trip, bring along your own golf cart for those trips to the campground store or to cruise down for a swim.

Special events. Planning a big outdoor party this summer? Make it easy on your guests to get to the party with a golf cart rental. Older relatives and those with physical impairments will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Trail rides. Want to go into the woods and take in nature? Pack up a cooler and head out on the trails in your rented golf cart. Electric carts are quiet, perfect for bird watchers or those trying not to scare away the wildlife.

Vacations. Planning to rent a cabin or visit a beach community on vacation? Park the car and bring a golf cart to see all the sites.  Many golf carts are street legal, making them a great way to get around in busy vacation areas.

Festivals. There are so many fun festivals to enjoy during the summer; however, if being on your feet all day is not possible, consider renting a golf cart. Many festivals will allow golf carts for those who need physical assistances.

Renting a golf cart is an economical way to make the most of all your summer plans. Check out your local golf cart rental companies to find the right cart for your next summer event.
