All golf carts are not created equal - not anymore. Options for your ride across the links can range from the traditional two-seat cart to a hand-stitched leather seat masterpiece that is the golf course equivalent of a Rolls-Royce. The industry has also welcomed many hybrid models that can leave the green and taken on a little light off-road action as utility task vehicles, or UTVs. For the young at heart, several models also feature a retro flare due to their resemblance to classic automobiles like hot rods and antique coupes.
For the old-fashioned automobile fan, the Streetrod Vintage Roadster 2 Passenger Electric Golf Cart sells for $17,999 through Costco. The Streetrod features luxury elements, like an underhood beverage cooler and a stereo system with kicker speakers, while showing off the sporty flames of the hot rods of the 1950s. Also, on the luxury spectrum - the high end - the Gardia Monaco 4 is a four-seater golf cart option that retails for $24,612. It is street legal and includes a variety of amenities from hand-stitched leather seats to a heated windshield with a wiper and washer system. On the lower cost end, the Madjax Genesis 300 Yamaha G29 Drive rear flip-seat with an aluminum frame costs $489.95 through Golf Cart King.
