Electric Golf Cart Buying Guide

Blog | 11 September 2018

Hitting a few balls at the golf course can be a great way to spend your afternoon. Still, your time can be spent even more comfortably if you have the luxury of a quality electric golf cart to ride around in. While everyone has a superficial understanding of golf carts, or golf buggies as they are sometimes known, most people haven’t learned the proper way to go about buying one for their own personal usage. Today, we are going to trot out a quick and convenient electric golf cart buying guide to help you make your shopping decision.

Electric Golf Cart – A Beginners Buying Guide

Like most other vehicles, golf carts come in two primary varieties: gas and electric. While the benefits and functions of a gasoline-based golf cart are easy to understand, and definitely common, the same cannot be said for electric golf carts. Before we dive into our electric golf cart buying guide, we should break out some standardised information. Electric golf carts feature a rechargeable battery that will vary in size based on the kind of cart that you are purchasing. Electric golf carts are eco-friendly but they do not run as fast or as long as gas-powered carts. With that out of the way, let’s talk about the steps you need to take in order to buy your electric golf cart.

1) Refurbished Vs. Brand New – The first thing that you need to decide is whether you want to buy a used electric golf cart or a brand new model. If you buy used, pay attention to usage history and analyse it for any potential red flags — such as extensive repairs.

2) Battery Power – Now, you need to take a moment in order to analyse the type of battery that is in your electric golf cart. As we highlighted above, the batteries in electric golf carts need to be recharged, typically every two days, but your usage will change that metric. If you are buying a used golf cart, it is imperative that you check the battery for quality condition.

3) Terrain Type – Finally, you need to take a moment in order to analyse the kind of terrain that you will be driving your golf cart on. Will you be using it to drive around the neighborhood? Will you be using the electric golf cart solely while out on the golf course?

As you can see, there are many questions that need to be answered in order to come away with the right electric golf cart for you. Take some time to properly analyse these questions before making your purchase.
