101 Ways to Customize your Golf Cart - The Complete List

Yes, you heard that right. We’ve found 101 ways to customize your golf cart!

Golf carts have come a long way from the simple vehicles they once were. Today's golf carts are versatile, stylish, and customizable, making them a popular choice for those who want to personalize their ride. Whether you're looking to enhance your golf game, transport guests, or simply make a statement, there are plenty of ways to customize your golf cart. If we’ve missed one, drop a comment! 

P.S. This list includes product links to external sites. We do not earn money if you decide to purchase them 🙂 Just here to help you customize your cart!

Exterior Golf Cart Customization 

  1. Paint Job

    Choose a custom color or design to make your golf cart stand out. Not only can a paint job improve the appearance but it could increase the value of your cart. At Garrett’s Golf Cars, we’ve made painted custom carts from college teams to Margaritaville themed paint jobs.

  2. Custom Wrap

    Golf cart wraps are a popular way to customize the appearance of a golf cart. They are vinyl decals applied directly to the cart's surface and can be printed with a wide range of designs and colors. Golf cart wraps provide a cost-effective and quick way to change the cart's look, and they can be partial or full wraps. 

  3. Foldable Windshield  

    Most golf carts come equipped with a foldable windshield, but for those who don't, upgrading to one is a great way to enhance the functionality and comfort of the vehicle. A foldable windshield provides protection from wind and elements while driving, and when not in use, it can be easily folded down for storage and transport. Or, if you are looking for a replacement, we have plenty of windshields to choose from.  

  4. High Impact Windshield 

    High-impact windshields for golf carts are an excellent option for those who work in construction sites or frequent rough terrain areas, as they provide added protection against flying debris and other potential hazards. They are made from durable materials, such as polycarbonate, that can withstand impact and remain clear for maximum visibility. With a high-impact windshield, you can enjoy your ride without worrying about damage to your golf cart or yourself.

  5. Window Tinting

    Tired of the sun getting in your eye? A tinted windshield is your fix. The tinted glass can provide shade and reduce glare, making it easier to see in bright sunlight. Check out our tinted windows here.

  6. Rims

    Custom rims for golf carts offer a great way to add a personal touch and enhance the look of your vehicle. Golf cart owners can choose from many styles, including spoke, turbine,  mag-style rims, and more!

  7. Wheel Covers

    Adding custom wheel covers can protect your rims and tires while adding another level of customization to your golf cart.

  8. Low Profile Tires

    Low-profile tires are efficient and quick. These tires offer a lower profile and a wider surface area, providing better grip on the road and turf.

  9. High Profile Tires

    High-profile tires are taller, with more sidewall—all-terrain style tires. High-profile tires provide improved traction, making them popular for golf carts used off-road or on uneven surfaces. 


  10. Enclosure

    Add a weather-resistant enclosure to keep you and your passengers protected. They come in various materials and sizes to fit most golf cart models and can be used for storage or transport to keep your cart clean and safe from damage. Investing in a golf cart cover can extend the life of your cart and help it look and perform its best. Choose from our wide selection of golf cart covers. 
  11. Roof

    Replace the factory roof with a custom one! If you are willing to go the extra mile, a roof with a  sunroof or built-in solar panels will make you stand out from the crowd

  12. Mirror

    Adding a rearview mirror to your golf cart can improve driving safety and visibility. It lets you see what's happening behind you, helping you avoid potential accidents or hazards. Rearview mirrors are easy to install and come in different styles and sizes to fit most golf cart models. One option is a universal 5-Panel Mirror

  13. Running boards/Cargo Rack

    A cargo rack for your golf cart can significantly increase its carrying capacity and versatility. With a cargo rack, you can easily transport and haul coolers, camping gear, and tools, making your golf cart a valuable asset for various outdoor activities.

  14. License plate holder

    Add a custom license plate holder to your golf cart for added customization. Some golf carts don’t require license plates, but you could add your own vanity plate!

  15. Vanity Plate 

    Adding a vanity plate to your golf cart can give your vehicle a fun and personalized touch. It can also make it easier to identify your golf cart in a crowded parking lot or among other similar vehicles. However, it is important to ensure that the vanity plate adheres to any relevant laws or regulations regarding vehicle registration and display.

  16. Horn

    Want your cart to sound like Herbie? Or a freight train? Now is your chance to add a custom horn to your cart.

  17. Fenders

    Fender flares can provide extra protection for the cart's body, wheels, and passengers from debris and mud when driving off-road or in wet conditions. They can also give your golf cart a rugged and sporty look, making it stand out on the course or in your neighborhood. Some EZ-Go models come with built-in fenders, like the Liberty Explorer Package.

  18. Bumpers/Bumper Pad

    Replace the factory bumpers or add a bumper pad for added protection. Bumper pads are usually thick plastic attached to the rear or front of your golf cart that can protect your cart from scratches and dings. If you have been to a larger city like DC or NYC you may have seen bumper pads handing over people's bumpers. 

  19. Brush guard 

    Brush guards protect your investment against those front end damages from trail debris. It can also enhance the appearance of the golf cart and give it a more rugged look. However, it is important to ensure that the brush guard is compatible with the specific make and model of the golf cart.

    Add customization to your grille with grille inserts. Club Car has Onward Grille Inserts. Decorative grill accents add visual interest and enhance the Onward front body design. They are now available in a carbon fiber pattern!

  21. Lift kit

    Like on cars, adding a lift kit to your golf cart can increase ground clearance, allowing you to drive over rough terrain or uneven surfaces more easily. It can also improve the overall appearance of your golf cart, providing a more customized and sporty look. However, it is important to ensure that the lift kit is installed properly and does not compromise the safety or stability of the golf cart. This 2022 Bright White E-Z-GO 48 Volt Valor has a lift kit on mag wheels.

We have options from Universal Trailer Hitch to a Universal Trailer Hitch for Seat Kit, specifically designed for use with seat kits.

  26. Rearview Camera

    With a rearview camera, you won’t have trouble backing into your parking spot. Adding a rearview camera to your golf cart can provide safety by improving visibility when backing up or maneuvering in tight spaces. It can also make parking the golf cart or hitching a trailer easier. This would act like a backup camera that you may have in your car.

  27. LED Lights

    Bring the party to the golf cart. Install LED lights for improved visibility and style. Below is a picture of a 2019 Club Car Tempo Black 48V with LED lights wrapped around the inside of the roof. Also, this cart has underbody glow lights! We will get to that next.
