Golf Cart

The electric golf cart was first developed in 1951 in Redlands, California by Merle Williams' Marketeer Company and has since been a common feature of all golf courses. Companies such as LEKTRO and E-Z-GO began production of their electric golf cart in 1954, Cushman in 1955, Club Car in 1958, Taylor-Dunn in 1961 and Harley-Davidson in 1963. In 1971, production of the gas golf cart began in a town called The Villages, Florida. The golf cart is currently used on golf courses to transport golfers and their equipment along the course but is fast becoming popular as a means of transportation known as golf cart travel. It is used by communities such as hospitals and high school students, but not every golf cart is legally allowed on a municipal street for general transportation purposes.

The Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) or "low-speed vehicle" is a type of golf cart that is built for general transportation but with a number of operating limitations such as top speed and heavy regulation on which type of streets it is permitted to be used. The California Vehicle Code and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regulate the operation, design and use of the neighborhood electric vehicle and have defined it as a motor vehicle that has four wheels, can attain a speed, in one mile, of more than 20 miles per hour but less than 25 miles per hour on a level surface and has a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 3000 pounds. On the other hand, a normal electric golf cart is defined as a motor vehicle that has not less than three wheels in contact with the ground, has an unladen weight less than 1300 pounds, is designed to be operated at not more than 15 miles per hour and to carry golf equipment and not more than two persons, including the driver. The golf cart can not be driven on municipal streets unless it is explicitly being moved from its place of storage to a golf course and the distance of travel for this use must not be more than 1 mile on roads with posted speed limits of 25 mph or less.

Several dealers today are misrepresenting the golf cart business because they sell any golf cart as street legal. Only two manufacturers, Columbia PARCAR and Gems, produce the newly designed golf cart that is regarded as a neighborhood electric vehicle while the standard golf cart is manufactured by E-Z-GO, Club car, Yamaha and Columbia PARCAR. If the standard golf cart is used for general transportation purposes, you can get into serious trouble with the law because they are not "street-legal". You should therefore be very careful where you buy your golf cart from and if you buy one that has been sold as "street-legal" but it isn't make sure to report it to the California Highway Patrol. Mesa GolfCarts is a genuine Columbia Par Car dealer that services Southern California, Los Angeles County and Orange County. It offers all makes and models of the golf cart and does business with apartment and housing complexes, schools, universities, colleges, amusement parks, hospitals, movie studios, warehouses and the general public. You can be assured that when you buy a golf cart for general transportation purposes from Mesa GolfCarts, you will be receiving a genuine vehicle for the specific purpose whether it is for industrial use or as a neighborhood electric vehicle.
