When acquiring a golf cart, it’s critical to consider how you’ll move it.

Many individuals choose to travel in a trailer. Most carts will fit in most trailers that are 5 feet wide by 9 or 10 feet long.

Smaller trailers, such as the 5x8s, should also be fine. A 4×6 trailer, on the other hand, is pushing it.

A golf cart’s typical dimensions are 4 feet wide by 8 feet long and 5.5 feet high.

These measurements are usually of smaller golf carts available for purchase. The dimensions of a larger golf cart that seats up to six people are 4 feet wide by 11.5 feet long and 5.5 feet tall.

There will be a significant difference in dimensions depending on the make and model, with Yamaha and E-Z-GO being two popular brands.

What is the length of a golf cart?

The length of a golf cart is measured from the front to the back of the cart’s longest component. A two-passenger golf cart is around 8 feet or 96 inches long on average. Longer golf carts with multiple rows of seating or freight and equipment storage are also available on the market. 

What is the width of a golf cart?

The width of a golf cart is measured from left to right across the cart’s widest component, including wheels but omitting any side mirrors or other extras.

For practical reasons, the front of the golf cart is narrower than the back.

As a result, the distance between the front wheels is shorter than the distance between the back wheels.

The two-passenger golf cart has an average width of 4 feet or 48 inches. Golf carts with seating for four or six passengers are larger than this.

The exact dimensions of a golf cart are determined by the cart’s brand and type, as well as the number of seats available. 

What is the width of a golf cart’s roof?

A golf cart’s roof protects you from the rain and the burning sun. Some golf carts arrive without a roof, so it’s always a good idea to get one fitted for both comfort and the cart’s longevity.

The width of a golf cart’s roof is determined by whether it is a two- or four-seater. The width varies between 54 and 112 inches. If a user has installed a rear seat that was not originally included, the roof will need to be changed as well. Roof heights range from 54 to 112 inches on most golf cart brands.

What is the height of a golf cart?

The height of a golf cart is measured from the ground up at its tallest point. The height of the cart can be calculated in two ways.

The first method is to measure the distance between the tire and the steering wheel when it is on the ground.

The second method is to take measurements from the wheel to the top of the cart’s roof. The manufacturer’s height should be taken as the distance from the bottom of the tire to the steering wheel in the event of a golf cart without a roof. The height, like the breadth and length, varies by manufacturer.

Can a golf cart fit in a truck?

trunk bed

A full-size pickup vehicle with a four-foot bed width should be able to accommodate a cart. If the cart is a bit longer than the truck or the truck is a regular size pickup, the truck owner can leave the tailgate down to extend the length. It is critical to use a ramp to assist in loading the golf cart. For the tires, you can use one giant ramp or two individual ramps. 

Golf carts typically weigh between 900 and 1100 pounds. It’s not the most straightforward item to lift. Some are lighter than others, depending on the material used and whether or not a battery is included.

Loading a golf cart in

You should be able to load a golf cart into the bed of a truck if you have an average truck and a regular golf cart. Before packing your golf cart, be sure you know how much it weighs.

Using some ramps with a load capacity of at least 1500 pounds would be the best method to load it. To prevent the golf cart from slipping, use straps or tie-downs to hold it to the bed of the truck. Before moving, double-check that the truck’s tailgate is properly locked in place.

Make sure you measure the length and width of the bed of your truck or pickup accurately by taking measurements from the floor. To ensure a correct fit, compare those measures to the dimensions of your golf cart.

Dimensions of the Golf Cart Basket

An E-Z-GO cart basket’s typical dimensions are 18.12′′ x 10.25′′ x 17.56′′. With these measurements, fitting a cooler with 12-18 cans in the back while keeping them cold and refreshing during a game of golf should be simple. A person should be able to fit closer to 24 cans or coolers depending on the size of the cans or cooler.

Golf cart parking dimensions

It’s crucial to know if your golf cart fulfills typical parking spot dimensions depending on how often and how you’ll use it. In the United Kingdom, a conventional parking bay size of 2.4 (7.9 feet) width by 4.8 meters (16 feet) long is recommended.

The minimum width for a parking place in the United States is roughly 8.5 to 9 feet. The majority of the spaces will be 16 to 20 feet deep.

For regular perpendicular parking, it is the usual DOT recommended depth. A basic E-Z-GO electric cart requires a parking area of approximately 4 feet by 8 feet, according to E-Z-GO.com.

After reading this article, you should be able to make a more informed decision about buying a golf cart and will be better equipped to load and park it. When it comes to moving your cart, having the right size and the right trailer or vehicle can make all the difference in the world!
