Buying a golf cart is a big decision. How many seats you need, whether or not you plan to go with factory-included colors or want to spring for a custom paint job all your own, and even whether to choose a gas-powered golf cart or an electric one are all going to be things that you'll want to take into account.
Two of the most popular options out there are E-Z-GO and Club Car, because of their dependability and affordability.
The first thing you'll want to take into account when purchasing a golf cart, is what it's going to be used for. Will you be using it on the golf course, to get around the neighborhood, for hunting, or something else? Knowing what each golf cart brand is known for will make your purchasing decision much easier.
Let's take a closer look at E-Z-GO and Club Car, and help you decide if either one is right for you!
E-Z-GO — Reliable and Affordable
E-Z-GO golf carts have an extremely good reputation! They're one of the most dependable golf carts on the market today, and there's a reason we chose to be licensed E-Z-Go dealers! They're built using a steel frame, along with other high-quality materials, to make them better for rugged off-road environments and handling the elements.
There are also tons of aftermarket upgrades available for E-Z-Go golf carts, so you can customize your cart to be perfectly unique, and perfect for you. Our favorite detail about E-Z-Go? Their durability hasn't led to prices that break the bank, and E-Z-Go golf carts are among the best value you'll find for your money.
One potential downside: While the steel frame on an E-Z-GO cart is very strong, it is also susceptible to erosion from humid climates found in the south or in coastal areas. You'll want to keep an eye out, and make sure to store your cart in a place where it's protected from the humidity.
Overall, E-Z-Go golf carts offer a strong brand known for durability, endless customizations, and plenty of style and comfort all their own.
Club Car — Quality and Style
Originating in the 1950's, Club Car has been a foundational brand in building the 'golf cart' concept as we know it today.
They've been designing and building some of the highest quality carts on the market, investing in innovative technology, which results in things like improved power for climbing steep hills, speed controls, high-quality steering, and the ability to balance speed and torque for customized driving experiences. Additionally, Club Car builds industry related golf carts for things like turf care, mass transportation, and food and beverage vendors.
Potential Weakness: Pricing. Higher starting costs and included technology that tends to lead to a faster battery drain could see you spending more money in the long run than you expected. On the other hand, picking up a pre-owned Club Car for sale in either of our two locations nets you all the benefits of Club Car ownership with a much lower investment.
Overall, Club Car is a great brand and makes golf carts that are good for golfers, hunters, or people just looking for a fun and convenient way to get around the neighborhood.
Regardless of what you need to get done, you really can't go wrong with either of these two brands. Go With Garrett's is a licensed dealer of E-Z-GO golf carts but we also carry a limited number of Club Car golf carts.
