O.k., now, onto the list, ‘8 Best Golf Cart Accessories for Summer 2023!’

  1. Air Con Add-on

Summertime is the perfect time to get your golf Cart out and on the street for those trips across town, to the lake or beach or to go shopping. As the weather warms up, having a stream of cool air blowing across you and your passengers is always a great idea.

The downside of adding an air conditioning unit to your Golf Cart is that it will increase the drain rate on your battery system. When selecting an air conditioning unit for your Golf Cart, choose a unit that has acceptable cold air output, but is not too demanding on the power it requires from your batteries.

A great Golf Cart Air Conditioning unit we found is the Dometic Penguin II – there are less expensive, and more expensive Golf Cart Air Conditioning units to choose from, but this unit has great reviews and comes in around $1,005.00.

  1. See Clearly with Upgraded Mirrors

Let’s face it, more often than not the standard mirrors on most golf Carts are…lacking. It seems more attention to quality and features is given to aftermarket Golf Cart mirrors. You have number of great options to consider and choose from.

There are adjustable drivers side and passenger side mirrors, heated mirrors and the popular 5 panel horizontal ‘blink mirrors’ for wide area, panoramic viewing.

  1. Keep it Covered.

Using a high-quality Golf Cart Cover is a great idea when storing your Golf Cart outside in the hot (or cold) weather. A Golf Cart Cover will extend the life of your Golf Cart by protecting it from the elements of heat, sunlight, rain and even animals.

There are many cheap options for Golf Cart Covers but we recommend making the investment in the highest quality Golf Cart Cover that your budget allows. The better quality Golf Cart Covers will fit tightly around all entry points, and will feature snaps or clips in trickly areas. A Golf Cart Cover will help prevent sunlight from fading your paint and keep dirt from getting onto the seats and bodywork of your Golf Cart. Plus, a Golf Cart Cover prevents or reduces corrosion that a Golf Cart could take on when exposed to the elements.

Which of these ‘8 Best Golf Cart Accessories’ have you installed or plan to install on your Cart?


  1. Lift Kit – Getting High for the Ride!

Driving a Golf Cart with a Lift Kit is just different and almost always a great choice. Lifting your Golf Cart just a few inches gives you a higher vantage point, a higher clearance for driving over speed bumps or curbs. A Lift Kit also gives you a sturdier ride and boy does it make your Golf Cart look good. A Lift Kit also means you can (and should) If you are considering a Lift Kit for your Golf Cart, make sure that it works with your model of Golf Cart and most of the Lift Kits only fit a specific manufacturer.

  1. Lighting Kit – Make sure they see you!

If the sole purpose of your cart is to use it on a Golf course during the day, then you may not see the value of adding a light kit. However, if you wish to make your Golf Cart street legal or intend to drive it around your neighborhood at night, you are going to need a light kit to optimize your view at night and neutralize the effects on other drivers or pedestrians. Halogen or LED bulbs are recommended.

  1. Install some Tunes!

What tells us that ‘Summer is here!’ like driving down the street with our favorite music playing so everyone can here it? Let’s face it, the stock stereos that come in most Golf Carts are ‘lacking’ in the high-end music delivery category. But fear not, there are a number of great options for aftermarket stereos and sound systems to make your Summer driving experiences most enjoyable. Best of all, there are some very affordable options for portable, Bluetooth Speaker Systems that do a wonderful job.

You have many options for adding a Sound System to your Golf Cart. Options are as simple as adding a nice sounding portable Bluetooth Speaker to a mount on your Golf Cart. However, if you are a bit of a ‘Audiophile’ you may choose to add a robust Sound System like the BOSS Audio System below which has great reviews on Amazon and comes in at a price of $269.00.

  1. Storage Case – you can never have too much!

Adding a secured, lockable Storage Case to your EV Cart is a great option. These sturdy and secure cases are great for storing your gear when you go to the lake or beach or securing your groceries or other items on your return from shopping. There are many options when selecting an aftermarket Storage System for your Golf Cart. Some Storage options are as simple as adding a portable, easy in-easy out Storage Container. Other options include sturdier and more permanent Storage Systems that will require some installation but they offer a great way to securing lock and transport items you wish to be stored while traveling or while parked. There are some units that even offer an alarm that will sound if your Storage System is being messed with.

  1. Luggage Rack

Whether your EV Cart carries 2, 4, 6 or 8 passengers you know you can always use more space for carrying items, luggage, a surfboard or two or whatever you may need on your daily adventures across town, to work or school or to the grocery store. A rooftop Luggage Rack is the perfect solution. There are many options and varieties of Luggage Racks for you to choose from to meet your needs.

Because of the quietness of electric vehicles and the possibility of collision with visually or audibly impaired pedestrians, the overall objective is to facilitate proximity awareness and minimize the chance of personal injury.
