Think You Have to Stop Using Your Golf Cart in Winter? Think Again!

Posted by Katherine Faulk on Dec 21, 2016 12:00:00 PM


We've written before about preparing your golf cart for winter storage, but if you want to keep using your golf cart during the winter. We’ve put a few ideas together! 

South Carolina generally has mild winters, so you may not need to store your golf cart or ATV! However, we have seen some damaging ice and snow storms. 

Once you’ve taken our advice on winter proofing your E-Z-Go, Club Car, Cushman, or other specialty vehicles, you’ll be able to keep using it right through the coldest months of the year.

What are some great uses for your golf cart or ATV during the winter?

In case of snow and ice, your golf cart can help! Sure, parts of South Carolina may not see much winter weather, but even the slightest bit of ice or snowfall can leave your sidewalks, driveways, or roadways slick. Your golf cart can help you stay safe while clearing your driveways! You’ll want off-road tires installed to have the best traction on slippery ice-covered paths or driveways. Your golf cart is perfect for carrying rock salt, shovels, and other essential items, helping you keep your home safe, even in serious ice accumulation.

Our tip: Pick up a bag of rock salt now. When bad weather hits, you won’t be worried if the ice comes down while you’re at home and can’t make it to the store.

Get your chores finished up faster with the E-Z- GO EXPRESS S4! The Express S4 has enclosed storage and premium tires, making it perfect when you’ve got pasture, fields, or other large acreage that needs to be taken care of. Load tools and equipment, and head out to take care of your chores even when you’re bundled up for the cold. 

Our tip: If you want to use your cart during the winter, consider adding brush guards, large fender flares, and MT Paramount tires. All of this comes with the Express S4 Explorer package! 

Ride from house to house in your neighborhood without worrying about walking in the cold! For those of you who keep a golf cart on hand for visiting the Farmer’s Market in the summer, heading out for golf during those beautiful fall days, or just getting around the neighborhood, your golf cart can keep you visiting friends and neighbors in style, even when the thermostat dips! Just pick up some enclosures to keep the wind from blowing that cold air in, and you can be on your way!

Our tip: Consider purchasing a small heater. Combined with the enclosures, it should help to keep you and your family nice and toasty while you’re on the road. Just make sure your golf cart is road legal!
