Top 6 Accessories Every Golf Cart Owner Should Have

Just like road vehicles, golf carts can be improved and enhanced by accessorizing them according to your specific needs. Whether it is a minor issue like a sound system or a more significant one like not having enough seats, accessories can ease a lot of inconvenience. Let’s go over the top six accessories that every owner should have.

Seat Belts & Safety

While a seat belt or mirror might not seem very necessary at first, they are a requirement to make a golf cart street-legal. Some states allow driving golf carts on the road with a few upgrades.
You will need seat belts, mirrors, a windshield, headlights and tail lights, a horn, reflectors, and turn signals.
The laws on golf carts vary from state to state, so you need to check with your local law before buying any of the necessary equipment and taking your cart on the road.
For example, in Austin, TX, a golf cart must have a license plate and can only be driven on roads with a maximum speed limit of 35mph or less. Although golf carts may seem like simple vehicles, safety features such as seat belts and mirrors are crucial, even on a golf course, cause accidents can happen. Seat belts have been mandatory in road-going vehicles since 1968, and for good reason.
But even if you encounter any problems, experience an accident, or your golf cart breaks down, we offer golf cart mobile repair in Austin, TX.

Speakers & Sound Systems

A popular golf cart accessory is a sound system. Music adds another layer of enjoyment to any situation. Be it driving around on a golf course from one hole to another taking your time to get that shot just right, or using the cart for other purposes like getting groceries. A decent sound system will be the difference between a boring, and fun ride.
We offer a quality soundbar option on every model for only 699$.

Fans & Heaters

While we don’t have much use for a heater here in Austin, TX, if you’d like to cruise comfortably in your golf cart regardless of extreme weather conditions, you will need some form of climate control.
By design, golf carts are very open therefore any weather event will affect every passenger.

Cooling fans come in a variety and aren’t very expensive. There are two mounting solutions for golf cart fans, some require no hardware and can simply be placed inside a cup holder but others need to be mounted to the roof pillars of your golf cart. We suggest a fan with an independent battery to avoid a timely installation process.

For a decent heater, you will need to spend a bit more. The mounting process is the same as the cooling fans.

Rain Cover

Another important measure to protect you and your golf cart from the environment is rain covers, an essential accessory to keep rain, humidity, and environmental factors from wearing down the interior of your golf cart. Keep in mind some rain covers aren’t designed for use while moving.

Specific And Universal Rain Covers
Rain covers and vehicle accessories in general are categorized into universal and specific models.
Universal accessories are made to be compatible with most vehicles, but in some cases, they can be outright incompatible or cause minor issues that you will need to solve on your own. Sometimes it’s just a matter of not being very visually appealing and other times real problems can arise.
Universal accessories come at a lower price due to ease of manufacturing and possible issues.

On the other hand, specific model accessories are made with an exact purpose for the exact model of the vehicle. This results in lower sales for the manufacturer and higher costs for you, but they are usually of higher quality and easier to install.

Rear Seat Kits

Even if you don’t have enough seating space in your golf cart, there is a solution. A rear seat kit will let you haul even more people around. Not every golf cart is compatible with these kits tho so make sure you do your research to make a smart purchase. If your golf cart has a bag holder at the back the first step is to remove it, then the seat assembly can be mounted to the back of the cart replacing the bag holder. The entire operation can be done very quickly without the use of any power tools, or having to create any holes.

First Aid Kit & Fire Extinguisher

Accidents can happen, anywhere and anytime having a first aid kit and fire extinguisher on hand is useful for any vehicle.

First Aid Kit
A first aid kit made for a car will be enough to help out during an emergency, golf is a very safe sport but a golf cart has many uses. It’s better to be ready for any situation.

Fire Extinguisher
If your golf cart is electric you will need a class-C fire extinguisher especially if your golf cart uses lithium-ion batteries. Lithium is very reactive and if the battery is punctured the moment lithium comes in contact with air it will ignite and will keep igniting until it loses contact with air. A class-C fire extinguisher forms a barrier to keep air out preventing the lithium from reacting to the air.
