Golf carts are not cheap so before buying one, you should first find out what it is that you need it for. It means deciding if you want to buy a new or a previously-owned vehicle. It also means thinking about whether you want it gas or electric-powered. For golf courses, electric-powered carts are advisable. Those who play in sporting clay competitions prefer to have gas-powered carts because they have more power when it comes to maneuvering in rougher terrains.
A brand new electric-powered golf cart costs around $4000-$5000, whereas a previously-owned vehicle may cost you half the price, around $2000. These are the minimum prices because the more extras you want to add the higher price it will fetch. For gas-powered golf carts, save a minimum of $3500 for previously-owned vehicles and $6000 for brand new carts.
You can easily purchase a new one but a more practical choice is investing in a second-hand but good one. Of course, you can also rent golf carts nowadays for a certain fee. Whatever you choose to purchase, never forget to buy golf cart covers to protect your investment too.
