Golf carts aren’t just for golf any more. The oddly shaped vehicles have been a staple of slapstick comedy for at least three decades, but they get around. On grass, snow, even ice, they go where cars and other vehicles can’t. A gas engine golf cart is even more fuel efficient than a battery-powered one.
There are many uses for golf carts/ ATVs, from getting around in large building like airports to moving safely and conveniently big estates and communities.
Golf carts have multiple uses
A golf cart is not define as a motor vehicle unless it has been souped up post-purchase. That means teenagers can start driving golf carts earlier than they can drive any other vehicles. For instance in the states of Georgia, Alabama, California, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Vermont, and South Carolina, the minimum age to drive a golf cart is 13 years. Elsewhere, the minimum age varies from state to state, between 14 to 15 years.
At the other end of the demographic spectrum, golf cars are becoming a popular mode of transport in retirement communities, giving residents mobility and safety both. Many retirement communities have special trails and paths for golf carts.
It’s easy to buy a golf cart
Prices at a golf carts dealership begin at $3,000 and can go up all the way to $30,000 for luxury designs. Pre-owned and refurbished golf carts can cost even less. Golf cart engines can be battery powered or they can run on gasoline.
A gas engine golf cart is more efficient than a battery powered one. A full battery has a life of 2 to 3 days, which is less than one-third of the time a gas engine lasts.
Golf carts are safe, fuel-efficient and easy to drive. In spite of all the hilarious golf cart accidents seen on film, in real life serious accidents and injuries are very rare. This may be due to the fact that top speeds are around 15-25 miles per hour.
There are many different types and models of golf carts available, and a reliable golf cart dealership can advise you on which one is right for you.
