Practical Uses of Golf Carts

Blog | 08 June 2018

Golf carts have a talent for multipurpose duties. While one model is conveying golfers, a nearly identical vehicle is roaming a residential neighbourhood as street transport. In such cases, they’re used as touring vehicles and around-town transportation. A warm climate is the only prerequisite. Even large gated communities use these motorized sedans. Residents just love riding mobile electric rides around their streets.

Back to the Practical Uses 

Moving away from gated communities, golf carts are still grafting for a living. On the golf course, extended cabins and flat rear sections accommodate landscaping tools. The owner of a large property, having just finished the last hole with a birdie, sees the landscaper on the fairway. Before long, he buys in his own electric cart and gives it to the maintenance staff so that they can reach the perimeters of his land. Maintenance golf carts use specially outfitted tool storage bins in place of the space that would otherwise store multiple golf bags.

Introducing Creative Modifications 

Logically, this vehicle type is built to glide across grassy areas. Taking that design characteristic into consideration, what else would we ever want in a park? A garage, a place that works with golf carts, can add expandable cargo space to one of these buggies so that it can carry mulch or potting soil. Similarly, enclosed cargo containers fit on the rear end of larger models. They come with rear-lift bays or side doors, all the better to qualify the cart as a true utilitarian transporter. Some nations use this form factor as an industrial asset, with the carts ambling around large warehouses. Even postal services take advantage of that feature.

Crossing the Electric Utility Vehicle Line 

At some point, the mods transform the buggies until they’re no longer recognizable. Industrially equipped golf carts serve as university campus police cars, as construction site assets, and more. In point of fact, there’s even a true Ute wagon available from specialist garages. The same familiar chassis and undercarriage is there, but the passenger space is gone. Instead of comfy seating, there’s a pair of lightweight aluminium toolboxes strapped to the vehicle frame. Industrial sites benefit from this reimagined form factor.

In the beginning, golf carts left the fairway. They moved into home garages and roamed streets. Warmer climates used the recreational vehicles to deliver mail and to navigate large gated communities. From there, the next step was clear. It involved the removal of the seating section. In place of golfer seating and golf bag storage, extended open areas and enclosed cargo bays took charge. Filled with tools, with landscaping material and more, modern golf carts are now multitalented vehicles.
