A golf cart is one of the most important accessories a golfer can have. It is also among the most expensive golf-related equipment in the market.
Over the years, the use of golf carts has diversified vastly. Gone are the days when golf carts were only used exclusively for golf; now they’re used for various purposes including off-roading, picnics and hunting expeditions.
Many players view it as a style statement and treat it as they would treat their beloved car. Golf cart companies recognize this need from their customers and are now designing their products accordingly. Modern golf carts are created to provide a pleasant and holistic golfing experience.
However, there are some accessories that further enhance the driving experience and help in providing a more personal touch to golf carts.
We have compiled a list of the best golf cart accessories that you can buy to make your cart more stylish and pleasurable. Here it is.
Golf Cart Tires
If you want to get the best out of your golf cart, then new tires are the first accessory you should consider. Generally, golf cart stock tires are smaller and suited for roads or a golf course, depending on the type of cart. However, if you want to explore the limitless possibilities a golf cart offers, you must upgrade your stock tires.
Bigger tires will not improve your golf cart’s ability to tread into rugged terrains, but will also boost its speed. Golf cart tires usually come in three configurations, namely, turf or street tires, off-road or knobby tires, and all-terrain tires.
Here we are featuring the X-Trail AT06 all-terrain tires that will give your golf cart a nice off-road look. These offer superior handling and traction and are also very durable and long-lasting.
Golf Cart Windshield
Don’t you hate it when you’re playing golf and the weather suddenly takes a dramatic turn, rendering you helpless? Sure, golf carts provide some cover from unceasing rains, but they’re only protected from the top. They are not suitable for driving in harsh conditions as the wind propels the rainwater directly inside the cart.
That is why golf cart windshields are one of the most popular golf cart accessories on the market. They protect you and your golf equipment from getting soaked during heavy rains and winds.
Here we are featuring a tinted windshield for Yamaha golf carts from Fat Cat Golf. It is an acrylic windshield and comes with a 1-year warranty.
Golf Cart Enclosures
What happens when your garage space is taken by your car, your golf cart has to stay outside and face the elements. These elements, mainly wind, rain, and the sun can seriously damage the interior and exterior of your golf cart.
Also, it can be very frustrating to drive a golf cart that is dripping water as it was soaking the rainwater the night before.
A golf cart enclosure or cover is the best remedy for this. The market is full of great golf cart enclosures that protect all-round protection from dust, water, wind, and sun. Some of these are drivable enclosures, which you don’t need to remove even while driving.
As a demonstration, we are presenting a terrific golf cart cover from Explore Land. This cover is made from 600D polyester and protects from several elements including dust, sun, wind, water, and scratches. The company also provides a 3-year warranty with this product.
Golf Cart Batteries
Batteries are the powerhouse of any electric golf cart and one could argue that they are the most vital component. They power your golf cart and also the other different accessories that you’re fond of, including the lights and speakers.
You can either buy a lithium-ion battery or a lead-acid battery depending on your cart’s compatibility. Here we are featuring a lead-acid battery from Amstron. This is a GC2 model battery and comes with loads of brilliant features. Few of them include shock and vibration resistance, low gas emissions of 4%, and high battery life.
Golf Cart Battery Meters
Batteries don’t come with an indicator that will let you know about the current status. As golf carts are now used for off-roading and hunting into unknown areas, it is important to know how much charge is left in the battery so you can find your way back home easily.
A battery meter can come in handy in such situations. They tell you the current battery status and alert you when the battery is having a low charge. Some of them even come with sophisticated alarm systems.
Here we are presenting a state of the art battery meter from DROK. This comes with an LCD screen and works with any battery ranging from 10 v to 100 v. It also has an alarm system for times when the battery is too low.
Golf Cart Voltage Reducers
A voltage reducer is one of the most underrated but also one of the most important accessories you can buy for your golf cart. Not many people know about voltage reducers and their uses. They are used to match the voltage of your cart’s battery and other accessories you want to attach.
We are mentioning a golf cart voltage reducer from D-PLANET that comes with a bunch of exciting features. Firstly, it has an exceptional efficiency of more than 95%, and also it is highly durable and long-lasting. Moreover, it has brilliant wattage and amperage.
Golf Cart Speakers
Everyone has a stereo system in their cars, so why not golf carts. Now with state of the art Bluetooth technology, you can turn your golf cart into a grooving machine that dances to your favorite tunes. You can pair your phone or a music player with the golf cart speakers and listen to your favorite music anytime and anywhere.
The market is brimming with some of the best speakers for golf carts, but our pick is the Ampcaddy Version 3 Pro Bluetooth Speaker. It has a 15-watt power output and the Bass Boost 2″ Resonator and can be mounted easily on any golf cart.
Golf Cart Light Kits
If you have a habit of driving your golf cart past daylight hours, you’ll be needing golf cart light kits. Modern light kits come as an assortment of headlights, taillights, wiring set up, and sometimes a horn too. Also, many states have mandated the installation of lights on golf carts.
Our top pick for a golf cart light kit comes from the reputed brand of 10L0L. These are designed for Yamaha golf cart models from 2007 onwards and come pre-installed with turn signals besides headlights. Also, this light kit is one of the only few that offer a limited 1-year warranty.
Golf Cart Battery Chargers
You’ll need a battery charger if you have an electric golf cart. However, these battery chargers are designed for specific models and come in different plug types. Also, battery chargers come in different configurations, including, smart chargers, fast chargers, and trickle chargers.
Our favorite pick is the MODZ Max48 15 AMP for Yamaha models. It is one of the best golf cart battery chargers in the market and comes preloaded with a host of brilliant features including water and dust resistance, and plug and forget technology. In addition, it is extremely lightweight and comes with an 18-month warranty.
Golf cart lift kits are another lesser-known accessory but can be tremendously useful in some conditions. Particularly if you’re planning to extend the scope of your golf cart beyond the confines of a golf course. They add a few inches to your cart, increasing ground clearance and paving the way for the installation of bigger tires.
For this list, we are featuring an A-Arm lift kit from 3G that will add 6 inches to your cart. This lift kit works for both gas and electric models and is very easy to install. Moreover, the maintenance is also pretty straightforward and comes in a stylish glossy finish.
