Let’s get started! 

Gas Golf Carts


Gas powered carts simply go faster, they are easy to refill, and can carry heavy loads. It’s fast in speed and long distances. These fast speeds can allow some gas powered carts the ability to drive on roads where Low Speed Vehicles are welcome. Gas powered carts are easily changed and customized. More features and accessories can be added to these carts making it desirable for the golf cart rider that truly wants a one of a kind ride.


As great as gas powered carts are, they don’t come with a few cons as well. The fuel and emissions needed to power a gas cart makes it harmful to the environment. It’s also quite loud, so not ideal in neighborhoods where this would bother the community. They also require more maintenance than their electric counterparts.

Electric Golf Carts


Electric golf carts are environmentally friendly, release no emissions, and are much quieter than gas powered carts. Electric golf carts are also cheaper than most gas carts as they are much more standardized. As a result of their ease, electric carts also cost much less to maintain.


The major con of electric carts is in their battery. While useful and efficient, you have a cart that’s run out of power, you will need to be towed to your destination. Battery charging takes significantly longer than filling up a tank, thus creating a longer period in between use.
