Do you own a golf cart?

You’d be surprised (or maybe you wouldn’t be) at the number of RVers who own golf carts. Sure, golfers love and use them often, but golf carts can also be a great method of transportation for those who are mobility-limited or who have to travel around large RV parks or resorts.

Check out these absolutely incredible golf carts. If you saw one of these, you might not even recognize it as a golf cart. Seriously, they’re amazing!

Do you own a golf cart? If you do, please tell us what you most often use it for in the comments. Thanks!

They certainly can be useful in some circumstances, but very few fit us, our style of travel. Cannot imagine a probable circumstance that might arise and persuade us to buy a golf cart.

I have a Cricket Cart. It’s small and fits in the back of my SUV (after some simple disassembly) I LOVE it!

We have one at our rv resort where we live pt. It’s very large and with only 1 other car, we needed it to get around.

I own 2. one in a rv resort and one a home. My walking days are over. Couple hundred feet and my hips are done until rested. Both are electric. No fumes nor noise and 10 mph max. I sure would love to have one of those old time cars as pictured

Wouldn’t want one if it was given to me

I refuse to even stay in campgrounds that allow golf cars. I’ve accidentally stayed in parks in the past and all the crazies in golf cars made it a miserable experience. Noise, dust, and unsafe to walk the roads or paths.

agreed! And other than someone with an actual disability/injury, I can’t get anyone to give me a legitimate reason to need one in a campground. And boy-howdy do they get mad if you ask them to explain why they need/want it!

Yes, We own a “Cricket”. It folds up and stores in the back of my toad as we travel. We also use the golf cart to pull my “Porta-Bote” to the boat launches in the RV parks we stay in. The boat folds up and travels on top of my toad.

Don’t want one, we need to walk more, not ride!!! Stopped golfing 15 yrs ago when I retired, it takes too much time and cost too much anymore.

We own two. We kept one at our seasonal campsite until we went mobile. The other is a “project” that I don’t have time for. Both are taking up space in the garage, and are For Sale.

Hi, Mike. I’ve emailed your address to Sven, so that he can email you directly (and so we don’t put your email addresses “out there” for the bad guys to get ahold of). Have a great day. 😀 –Diane at

The request above was “Mike’s” first posting on this site, requesting me to reply to his gmail account. These are two BIG RED flags that Mike may be a scammer. I only deal with buyers/sellers who are local, and willing to meet in person.

We “inherited” a golf cart from the former owners when we bought our current house. Our small city of about 35,000 people has one registered golf cart for every three residents and a network of over 100 miles of paved cart (multi-use) paths. Although there are 27 holes of golf in town and more courses nearby, people use them more to go to work, school, shopping, doing other errands, or recreational purposes than playing golf. It helps to lessen motor vehicle traffic on the roads. We are in our mid-70s and walk a lot (the path system is a big reason why we moved here). We rarely use our cart and we’d never take it to a campground.

It never fails to amaze me when I see otherwise healthy adults and teens using golf carts for every little distance at a campground. Do your heart a favor and walk!

A Cricket SX-3, carry it on the back of the Jeep Cherokee and use it as an ADA Mobility Cart.

Our golf cart stays at home, it is used for yard work around the house.
