by Simone Tachill

If you are an avid golfer then you should consider investing in a Club Car golf cart. It is comfortable, easy to use and can be customized to suit your tastes and your needs. While all golf courses will have Club Car golf carts available for rent it often works out cheaper to buy one than to continually have to rent one. However, there are so many carts on the market today that it can be hard to choose the right one so here are some things that you should consider when choosing a golf cart.

Choosing the Right Club Car Golf Cart Model

Take some time to think about what features you need the cart to have. While some golf carts are quite basic, others have all sorts of accessories and extras which might well be nice to have but which may also not strictly be necessary. Furthermore, in many cases, it is cheaper to add parts at a later date than it is to buy an expensive model with lots of features. Choose a model that is comfortable and easy to drive and which, most importantly, meets your particular needs.

If you intend to drive off the golf course then you must make sure the cart you choose is sturdy enough for this. There are different types of Cub Car golf carts, such as electric and gas powered models, some of which are designed to be driven off a golf course and others which are not. It is also important to see how fast the car in question can be driven. Most Club Car golf carts are capable of reaching speeds of up to 19 or 20 miles per hour.

A New Club Car Golf Cart Or A Used One?

There are both new and secondhand Club Car golf carts on the market and the main advantage to buying a secondhand cart is that it is cheaper than buying a new one. Secondhand carts that are still in good condition can be a good buy. If you intend to take out an insurance policy to cover your cart you will also find that used carts are cheaper to insure than new ones.

However, you have to be very careful when buying any used golf cart. Check how many miles it has done and make sure that the motor and all the other important components are in good working order. Make sure that it has been properly serviced and maintained and that it has been well cared for. Most importantly, be sure to take it out for a test drive. While there are many used carts for sale over the internet it is always better to shop in person and see what you are buying close up.

Choosing the Right Parts

Many people enjoy customizing their golf cart which can be as simple as placing decal stickers on the cart or as complex as installing new wheels, tires and a dashboard. Either way, a custom cart will stand apart from the others at your gold club.

You should consider which accessories are essential to have. For example, if you enjoy playing golf in all types of weather, then you should think about investing in a clear enclosure. This enclosure will help to protect the cart from the elements and will also enable you to install a heater or air conditioning unit if you wish.

A windshield is another good feature to install. It can look sporty but its main function is to protect the cart and you from stray golf balls. However, if you do buy a windshield, then it is important to polish it and coat it so that it can withstand a good amount of wear and tear. Buying windshield wipers is also important, especially if you will be driving your Club Car off the golf course. There are both mechanized and manual windshield wipers and the latter are less expensive and surprisingly are not as hard to use as you might think.

Other optional accessories include a radio, CD player, dashboard and storage box. When buying any one of these accessories, make sure the part is a good fit. Note the model of your cart and check the part label carefully. If you are adding accessories to your Precedent then you might find that parts designed for the XRT, Carryall or other utility vehicle will not fit. It is also important to make sure the part in question is well made and can take a fair bit of wear and tear. Consult online product review sites if you want to make sure the part is good value for money.

Buying one of the many Club Car golf carts available today is a very worthwhile investment if you enjoy golfing on a regular basis. However, as such a cart can cost a fair bit of money, it is important to choose the right one. When buying a golf cart, or indeed parts and accessories, for a cart take the time to consider all your options carefully and buy items that are well-made and that come at the right price.
