Posted by Tara Ann Garrett on Oct 5, 2017 1:43:37 PM

When most people imagine a golf cart, they think about a group of people heading out to the golf course to play a few rounds.

While our carts are great on the course, they're also exceptional at helping out around the farm, taking you off-road for hunting, fishing, or camping, and helping you enjoy you South Carolina beach vacation in comfort and style.

We've left one important use for golf cars out. Can you guess what it is?

That's right! E-Z-Go's golf cars are also perfect for heading out around the neighborhood, taking a quick trip down to the Farmer's Market, or dropping off the kids at school... all on the road.

Prepping Your Golf Cart for Fall and Winter Storage

Posted by Katherine Faulk on Sep 13, 2017 8:08:26 PM

That first chilly morning can be a surprise, especially for South Carolinians used to trying to come up with new words to describe just how hot it is here throughout late summer and into early fall.

However, those chilly mornings are also an important reminder that it's time to start thinking about prepping your golf cart for fall, before it's time to pull that winter coat out of the back of the closet!

While many golf cart and ATV owners keep using their vehicles all throughout the generally mild South Carolina winter, many do consider the first frost the right time to put the cart away until spring.

We have tips that will help you maintain a long lifespan for your E-Z-Go, Textron Off Road, or Cushman carts even after the temperatures really start to dip.

Keep Your ATV Winch in Tip-Top Condition With These Tips

Posted by Katherine Faulk on Sep 7, 2017 10:48:41 AM

A winch or tow hitch is an essential part of your ATV or golf cart, especially if you use it for heavy-duty work in landscaping, huntingfishing, or off-road work around the farm.

Winches also come in handy for those who like to take their ATVs out to one of many ATV-friendly parks in South Carolina. Should you end up stuck in the mud, a good winch can get you out in no time.

For such a hard-working addition to an ATV, a winch doesn't get a lot of attention or require much maintenance. Once it's done the job, the cable is reeled back in, and the winch ends up overlooked. There are a few things you can do to make sure your ATV's winch remains in tip-top condition and on-hand to help when you need it.
