Gas vs. Electric: Which Golf Cart is Right For You?January 28, 2016
While most people only think of one kind of vehicle when they think of a golf cart, there’s actually a lot of variations made for every lifestyle! Carts come in various shapes and sizes, suited to all kinds of personal requirements.
Looking for a golf cart but not sure which type is right for you?
When deciding which golf cart is right for you, consider what you will be using the cart for. Do you plan to use it for the neighborhood, golf course, commercial, or off-road use? This will help you choose the right cart type for your needs.
Golf Carts for the Neighborhood
If you’re looking for a golf cart to drive around the neighborhood, a cart option like those from E-Z-Go is the right choice for you! With an easy ride, room in the back for storage, and electric options that save you money on gas, E-Z-Go models are great for getting you from your home to the community pool or just to see your friends across the neighborhood.
Golf Course Transportation
For golfers, a personal golf cart is a must-have. These carts are designed for individual use and are commonly used to transport golf clubs and equipment. E-Z-Go offers lightweight and easy-to-maneuver carts, making them an affordable option for golfers.
Commercial Golf Carts
A utility golf cart might be the best option if you’re looking for a cart for commercial use, such as in a park or industrial setting. They are larger and more heavy-duty than personal golf carts, featuring bed liners, cargo boxes, and tow hitches. They are perfect for hauling heavy loads and towing trailers but are also more expensive and require regular maintenance.
Off-Road Golf Carts
Look into the great vehicles provided by Cushman. They make everything from heavy-duty burden carriers and haulers to street-legal vehicles for landscaping. You won’t have to worry about being overburdened, whether you’re looking to haul feed and seed around the farm or need something to help organize your manufacturing facility.
Custom Golf Carts
Custom golf carts are exactly what they sound like – golf carts that have been customized to meet the owner’s specific needs. This can include custom paint jobs to specialized equipment, such as unique lighting or sound systems. Custom golf carts are ideal for those who want a unique cart that is tailored to their individual needs.

Gas or Electric Golf Carts
When choosing between a gas or electric golf cart, it’s important to consider your intended use and personal preferences. Electric golf carts are quiet, efficient, and environmentally friendly, making them a great option for a drive around the neighborhood or golf course. They are also affordable and require minimal maintenance.
On the other hand, gas-powered golf carts offer more horsepower and torque, making them ideal for covering longer distances and handling steep terrain, making them a great choice for off-road use and commercial use. However, they are more expensive to operate and require regular maintenance.
While many people believe the only golf carts available are the kind you see heading across the green, we here at Garrett’s Golf Cars work hard to provide you with options that fit just about any lifestyle. Whether you need a vehicle for golf, commercial use, hunting, or just for riding around the neighborhood, Garrett’s has the perfect golf cart for you!
