Golf Carts

A golf cart or golf car is a small vehicle that was originally designed to carry two golfers and their golf clubs in and around a golf course. Golf carts can now be found at a majority of golf courses, though some courses still prohibit their use.

Golf cart production is a multi-million dollar industry and their production date back to the 1950s. Merle Williams of Long Beach, California is one of the early innovators of the electric golf cart. E-Z-Go and Harley Davidson along with Cushman, Pargo were the first to manufacture golf carts. The cost was very high at $1200 when they were introduced, but later it dropped down to $600 due to the entry of more manufacturers.

These golf cars come in a wide range of formats and they are generally used to convey small number of passengers over short distances. Their speeds are less than 15 mph as specified by the z130.1 ANSI standard. A typical golf cart's dimensions are 4' x 8' x 6' (L x B x H) and it usually weighs between 900 and 1000 pounds. Golf carts also come in a few different designs and sizes for your convenience.

Originally most golf cars were gas powered, but now the trend has shifted to battery-powered systems. Electric-powered vehicles are widely used since they do not pollute the environment and are much more quiet.

Other uses for golf carts

Golf carts can be found in many places besides on the golf course. They are used by many companies as runabouts for their employees to travel around the production site. They are also used in estates since they are versatile and efficient. They are used to transport the disabled in airports. High schools and colleges frequently use golf carts extensively to move personnel and equipment around their campuses. Professional athletic teams also often use golf carts to transport people and athletic equipment. Many schools and professional teams furnish golf carts to their athletic trainers for use as mobile first aid stations.
