About the Golf Cart
A golf cart or golf buggy is a small vehicle designed originally to carry two golfers and their golf clubs around a golf course with less effort than the traditional method of walking. Actually the correct term is golf cars golf car according to ANSI standard z130.1, since "carts" are not self-propelled. Golf carts come in a wide range of formats and are more generally used to convey small numbers of passengers short distances at relatively slow speeds. Usually less than 15 mph. They are generally around 4 feet × 8 feet long × 6 feet high and weigh 900 pounds to 1,000 pounds . Most are powered by 4-stroke engines.
Golf Cart Prices
The price of a golf car can range anywhere from $3,000 - $15,000 per car, depending if the carts are new or used, if there is a bulk purchase, and features and options. With the rise in popularity of golf carts, many golf clubs or country clubs offer storage and energy options to golf cart owners. This has led to the modification of golf carts to suit use at the particular golf course. Typical modification includes windshields, ball cleaners, cooler trays, upgraded motor or speed controller, and lift kits. Originally golf cars were electrically powered, but in time gasoline powered variants started to occur. Electric golf cars were the first mass-produced electric vehicles for private consumer use. This variety is now used in many communities where their lack of pollutants, lack of noise, and safety for pedestrians and other cars, due to slow speeds, are beneficial. When purpose-built for general transportation these are called Neighborhood Electric Vehicles, but with various operating limitations such as top speed and heavy regulation on which type of streets these types of cars are permitted to be used. These may resemble the golf cars shown above, although some are now being made with all–weather car–like bodies.
