Obviously the most common use for golf carts is getting around those 18 holes on your favorite golf course. However, more and more people are learning that they can be a lot of fun as recreational vehicles, as well. It takes a little advance planning to find locations where you are allowed to operate golf carts, but it’s really worth the effort. Since electric golf carts in particular are relatively quiet, they can be perfect for site seeing, for example. They are also a great way to get around your property, particularly if you have more than a couple of acres. Some gated communities allow golf carts to be driven along their public streets for going to visit neighbors or heading down to the clubhouse.
Although golf carts don’t have the horsepower to handle the same types of off-roading that other vehicles tackle, they can be fun on courses designed specifically for them. You just have to be sure you have the right tires to handle the job, or you could find yourself pretty stuck. It isn’t hard to pull golf carts out of these situations, though, so why not give it a try?
