I was searching the web trying to find an article that would address my perceived problems with golf carts when I came across this article. It addressed the dash layouts but didn't address the 2 things I think are problematic. The first one is the handrail that is on the side of the seat. I believe that Yamaha has the highest one. You have to scoot up to the front of the seat so your leg can swing out past this useless handrail. These things are never cleaned so they always leave black marks on all of my light colored pants and shorts. I hate them.But my biggest problem is with the club storage area in the rear of the golf cart. Do the engineers that design these areas actually play golf? I don't want to say which cart is the worst but all three of the Big Three seem to have this save problem. The modern golf bags, ie. cart bags just don't fit like they should. These areas are too small and/or the fender too high which makes it difficult to get into the side pockets. And the bar that has the lever latch where the strap attaches doesn't even come close to cradling a golf bag. Most if not all bags now have a slot to slide the retainer strap through so the non cradling nature of the retainer system just allows everything to twist and slide around. If it's just one bag the bottom bounces around until the bag is laying sideways back there. I use a C-clamp on the strap to hold my bag in place. It doubles as a towel holder.
Great article! Thanks for the detailed comparisons on the Big 3. Any opinion or insight you can offer on the ICON brand?
Been in golf business for nearly 10 years. Club Car has gone downhill rapidly. Terrible company. EZGO and Yamaha clearly the better options. This explains the shifts in market share. The Club Car product is just awful. Dealing with the company to get things resolved is even worse.
Well written and informative article, but I have a different question about golf carts. I’m not a golfer, but a camper at an RV campground and most people here have one. We’re overlooking the Ohio River with paths to ride on , wondering your thought about which one has the best suspension for riding along on pavement and sandy soil? Anyone else have an opinion on carts for this purpose?
The new 2020 Yamaha Drive 2 has independent rear suspension, which is a first as far as I know.
Very well written. Appreciated! I also deal in golf cart supplies, parts and accessories. Visit https://wildaboutcarts.com/ for more information. Thanks
I am looking to buy my personal cart. I have been working on a golf course since I retired (10 years ). We originally had Club Car. Durable and solid. Our last 2 fleets have been EZ Go. They rattled and squeaked from the day we got them. The newer ones with regen braking are good but ours had peddle lock brakes and after about a year you start having trouble. The plate that locks the park wears. Not a fan of gas at all.
I like cubbies that slant back - keeps stuff from falling out & best of all, self-braking carts! My take on a perfect cart!
I already voted with my wallet. I have a Yamaha in my garage, the only choice by a mile (Even if you're not 6'5" tall as I am.). The interior design is by far the roomiest (Leg room and head height), the centre console is the best designed and mine has the big tires and goes 21 mph.
ClubCar is alone in 4th place.
I've owned Yamaha gas golf carts for years. There has never been a better cart on the market, period. Nicely styled bodies, bullet proof engines, best suspension = best ride & they have the easiest steering of any make or model. They have the most user friendly centre dash & nice deep glove boxes, big storage area behind the seat, exceptional quality fit & finish and easily accepts any after market accessory. I have no problem doing any maintenance on it (oil changes, air filter, gas filter, etc.).
I've found the Club Cars have the heaviest steering, cup holders that don't hold cups very well & they've got the ugliest body lines of cart.
Appreciate the analysis. My home course just got a new fleet of Yamaha carts this year and they're excellent in all the ways you describe.
