Moving To A Retirement Community? A Golf Cart Might Become Your Preferred Method of Travel

Golf cart

Golf carts are fun little toys to own, especially for those who live in an area where golf carts are allowed on the roads, or other places like retirement homes or year around campgrounds where golf carts are allowed. They’re a convenient method of transportation to get around a beach, neighborhood, or to use for commercial purposes. They’re fairly affordable because they range in prices depending on how many bells and whistles one wants to deck the golf cart out in. They’re also great for carting around groups of people, and golf cart batteries have a decent charge that lasts between two and three days. Because of their size, convenience, and affordability, more and more people are looking into pre owned golf carts, or even brand new golf carts to enjoy.

As mentioned before, golf carts are a convenient method of transportation because they come in a wide range of prices. Typically, they start out around $3,000 for pre owned golf carts, all the way up to $30,000 for carts on the more luxurious end. Golf carts are also convenient and highly sought after because they’re small, yet they can carry anywhere between two and ten passengers. The typical cart is only about four feet wide by eight feet long by six feet high and weigh about 1,000, thanks to the 4-stroke engine that most carts are equipped with.

Golf carts are also allowed on some streets throughout the U.S. when the speed limit is 35 mph or lower, and people can be as young as 13 to drive a golf cart, particularly in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and a few others. They’re most often seen being driven around on resorts, golf courses, small neighborhoods, commercial properties, and even retirement homes. In fact, Florida has a retirement community, the Villages, that constructed a rather extensive trail system for their 70,000 residents to drive their golf carts on to get around the community.

Golf carts have solidified their place among the methods of transportation opened to people. Besides bikes, scooters, motorcycles, cars, and trucks, Americans in any states can also enjoy getting around on the more environmentally friendly, and fun, golf cart. So for those thinking about getting their hands on a golf cart, checkout used golf carts and ask around at the local golf cart dealership. That perfect golf cart is just waiting to be found!
