Choosing the Right Golf Cart for Your Needs

Picking out the right golf cart can be a daunting task. With so many models, features, and options to choose from, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. Whether you’re looking for a reliable golf cart to use around your neighborhood or an industrial-grade model that can tackle work sites and off-road trails, here’s what you need to consider when shopping for the perfect golf cart.

Consider Your Needs
The first step in picking out a golf cart is to consider your own needs and desires. What type of terrain will you be driving on? Are you looking for a basic model or something more luxurious? Do you have any special requirements such as an extra seat or storage space? Knowing what type of driving conditions you will be facing, as well as how much power and speed you require, will help narrow down your choices considerably.

Think About Budget & Features
Once you know what type of golf cart would best suit your needs, it’s time to start thinking about budget and features. When shopping for a new golf cart, there are several factors to take into account including price point, size/capacity, power source (gas or electric), additional features (headlights/taillights/etc.), warranties & guarantees, and service contracts. You should also consider whether or not the dealer offers financing options so that you can spread out payments over time.

Choose Quality Over Price Point
When it comes to purchasing a new golf cart, quality should always take precedence over price point. While it may be tempting to purchase the least expensive option available on the market today, it’s important to remember that cheaper doesn’t always mean better. Many times these lower priced models come with fewer features and less reliable components than higher end models do. Therefore, if possible try to invest in a more expensive model that is designed with higher quality parts and has more robust features.

Shopping for the perfect golf cart doesn’t have to be stressful! By considering your needs first before diving into budget and features, you can ensure that you get exactly what you want at a reasonable price point.

Why Golf Carts have become a Necessity for Everyday Life

Why Golf Carts are a Necessity for Everyday Life

Golf carts have become more than just a mode of transportation on the fairway. In recent years, they’ve become an integral part of everyday life and are now a necessary tool in many different industries. Here, we’re going to explore why golf carts are so important, and how they can be used to improve efficiency in your daily work.

Efficiency Benefits
Golf carts provide a number of efficiency benefits that make them invaluable in certain industries. For example, if you work at an airport or other large facility, you may find yourself having to constantly walk back-and-forth between points of interest. This can be incredibly time-consuming and inefficient. With the help of a golf cart, however, you can cover much larger distances quickly and with ease. This means more time for getting actual work done instead of running around aimlessly!

Cost Savings
Golf carts also offer cost savings benefits that can have a major impact on your bottom line. For instance, they’re much cheaper than traditional cars when it comes to fuel costs, as well as maintenance costs over the long term. Additionally, if you own or manage a business with multiple locations spread out across town or even across the country, investing in golf carts could be much cheaper than buying multiple vehicles for each location!

Safety Features
In addition to their cost savings benefits and efficiency advantages, golf carts also come with several safety features that make them ideal for everyday use. They come equipped with seat belts as well as headlights and taillights that ensure visibility during night trips or bad weather conditions. Plus, most golf carts also feature rollover protection systems that help keep riders safe from potential accidents or mishaps while driving over uneven terrain.

Golf carts are no longer just for playing golf – they have become an essential tool for businesses and families all over the world looking for ways to save money and increase efficiency while keeping employees safe. Whether it’s hauling materials across large facilities or shuttling people between locations quickly and easily; there is no doubt that golf cars are here to stay! Be sure to take advantage of this technology by investing in golf carts to improve your daily lives and routines.

Get Ready for the Upcoming Golf Season with a New Golf Cart!

The golf season is just around the corner and now is the perfect time to start thinking about upgrading your golf cart. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced golfer, investing in a quality golf cart can make a huge difference in your game. Here’s what you should consider when buying a new golf cart.

Size Matters

It’s important to consider how much space you have available for your golf cart. When selecting a size, think about where you plan to store it when not in use and how easy it will be to transport it from one place to another. If you plan on taking your cart on the road, make sure that it fits in the trunk of your vehicle and that it won’t take up too much space.

Power Source

Most electric golf carts run off of 36-volt batteries while gas-powered carts usually require 4-stroke engines. Depending on where you plan on using your golf cart, either type can be suitable. Electric carts are best if you plan on using them exclusively at home as they tend to be quieter and more energy efficient. Gas-powered carts are better suited for longer distances since they don’t need to be recharged as often.

Price Point

Golf carts can range from relatively inexpensive models to those with all the bells and whistles – so no matter what your budget is, there’s something out there for everyone! Do some research into different types of carts so that you know what features are available at each price point. You may find that spending a bit more money up front can save you money down the road if certain features will help extend the life of your cart (such as rustproofing or weather protection).

If you’re looking for an upgrade this upcoming golf season, purchasing a new golf cart could be just what you need! Consider size, power source, and price point when shopping around so that you get exactly what you need without overspending or compromising on quality. With these tips in mind, finding the right golf cart should be easy! Happy shopping!

How to make a golf cart street legal

When someone thinks golf car one the first things that probably comes to mind is playing golf. More specifically you probably see an image of your favorite course the pro-shop some of the beverage cars roaming around on a sunny afternoon. But as most of you likely already know a golf car can be used for many different purposes like hauling tools around a job site, moving clients around an event, cruising around the neighborhood with the kids etc. In all of those situations a “SMV” or slow moving vehicle is required to legally move around on public roads. SMV can also be interpreted as making a vehicle street legal. It is important to note that different cities, counties, jurisdictions, and even  HOA’s can have different requirements to make a slow moving vehicle so always double check your areas by-laws. But in this posting we will be going over the basic requirements to begin making your golf car street legal.

All of these can be purchased online or here at Masek

Top 5 things to do with your golf cart in the slow season

For most folk the off season for golf means hanging up the gear and putting away the golf car. With having to battle the cold temperatures and occasional in-climate weather it can be easy to put it away and await the warmer seasons. But there are some great things you can do with your golf car in the meantime to ensure a great working and great looking cart in the spring.

  1. If you are using a electric golf car be sure to check the water levels in your batteries, especially if the car is being stored outside. When water levels are too low you run the risk of permanently damaging the battery systems.
  2. If you are using a gas cart be sure to turn on and run for a few seconds every month or so. This helps keep oil and gasoline from sitting too long and causing damage to the engine.
  3. One of the best things to do when you are not using you cart is bring it in for an annual service. Annual services include changing oil and filters as well as checking battery performance and other issues that can arise from regular wear and tear.
  4. If you been holding off on upgrading your car, the off season is a great time to have that done. Lift kits, bluetooth speakers, new rims are some of our favorites here at Masek 🙂
  5. Trading them in. A golf car can last a lifetime if taken care of properly but this can put a dent in your wallet over the years. Its always a good idea to shop around and see what a newer car can offer you.

Scooters, the new golf car?

Golf is an industry that has been around for hundreds of years. With deep roots in its traditions, it can be a sport that hesitates to adjust and is slow to adapt to changing times. In the world we currently live in, a time where things are changing rather rapidly, the need for a change in golf is not far behind. Like we spoke about last week, the need for single rider cars is on the rise to accommodate new safety guidelines. This means your everyday visit to the links could look very different. As of right now, courses are seeing a huge inflow of golfers but not enough cars to go around. With new guidelines, each car they have is only able to carry a single person and their accompanying gear no matter what the size of the golf car is. This is causing a need for change in the golf world. 

While golf cars are a staple point in golf and have been for many decades, the usage and needs of the golf car has adapted. Single rider usage has brought many questions to courses on the efficiency and cost effectiveness of running a full sized golf car fleet. While modern day gas or electric cars are much more efficient than their predecessors, they are built to handle multiple people and the corresponding gear. With the current need for only one person and one set of clubs, the modern golf car is over engineered and overpriced for the current demand. Many golf courses and clubs have become much more inclined to give another form of transportation a shot, the scooter. They are more cost effective, easier to maintain, and are perfect for single rider courses. Not to mention the added revenue to the courses. From a revenue standpoint, most courses have standard cart fees in their regular rates. With the scooters, it gives an opportunity to charge a premium, typically around $20 per scooter, on top of the regular rates.

Companies like Phat Scooter and Finn Scooter are companies that are feeling the change in the world and in golf. They have seen a huge amount of interest from courses now needing single rider options. Even just a few months ago, these companies were only receiving four to five inquiries a month. Now, they are receiving multiple a day. The future of the golf car still seems to be up in the air, but this trend seems to be pointing to an additional transportation option, the single rider scooter. So whether it’s in a golf car or on a scooter, golfing will persevere through these unusual times and continue swinging on the other side.

Single Rider Usage

We are entering a new world, after the closings due to the pandemic, that has many challenges and changes. Wearing masks in public is our new norm, social distancing guidelines are in place everywhere and businesses are having to figure out how to open safely. While these issues will most likely remain prominent for years to come, for many people and businesses alike, it’s time to start getting used to our new normal.

The golf world is experiencing a range of changes as well. Golf courses and clubs are beginning to see the increasing need for single rider cars to maintain healthy social distancing practices. For the avid golfer or even newcomers, this could mean a large change in how you golf all together. Golfers could experience longer wait times or even filled tee times due to less capacity. One way courses and clubs are trying to combat these challenges is by providing the option of bringing in personal golf cars to accommodate single rider usage.

With new rules and guidelines, comes longer wait times and lines and golf courses are no exception. During this reopening period in our country and individual states, single rider usage has become a sticking point for most courses. With only a certain amount of single rider cars at one course, the amount of people golfing at one time will be limited. This can slow down the turnover of people golfing, it can reduce the amount of people a course can accommodate within a days time, and can make reserving tee times and cars a much longer process.

Many courses are beginning to allow private golf cars on their courses to help mitigate the lack of inventory and longer wait times. It is becoming easier and more efficient to bring a personal car to your course, not only for the comfort and  security of knowing where the car has been and how clean it is, but also for the peace of mind knowing you won’t have to worry about the hassle of renting a car from the course when there may not be any. Masek is here and ready to help with any inquiries about your own personal single rider car. Golf on!


Masek Updates

Through these difficult times, we as a community have rallied together and as we approach the summer months, it seems we have reached the light at the end of the tunnel. Our state and counties have begun taking steps to reopen in hopes to reach some sort of normalcy and Masek plans to do the same.  We have taken steps to reopen in a safe manner, while still offering the same quality service we know our customers deserve. Effective as of last week, we are back to our regular M-F, 8am-5pm hours and are taking steps to follow guidelines given to us by the Governor, such as social distancing with our staff and customers, requiring face masks be worn in high traffic areas, and disinfecting surfaces regularly. We have also implemented a disinfecting procedure for all golf cars that come in and out our shop, whether that be for service, sales or rentals. We want our customers to feel safe and comfortable working with our company and receiving/using our golf cars. Please check out the video bellow for more information on the steps we are taking to insure a clean and sanitized golf car. Feel free to reach out to us through Facebook, Instagram, Phone or email if you have any further questions. We look forward to work with you all, as you enjoy Summer 2020 from the comfort and safety of a golf car!

When to bring in your golf cart

In last weeks post, we talked about great tips and tricks for maintaining a golf car and prolonging its life. But when should you start considering a visit to the shop? As I mentioned last week, an annual inspection is always a great idea for your golf car. It can help catch problems before they become more serious and more expensive, but there are some common issues that golf cars have over time that do require some expertise to diagnose and repair.

Electric golf cars: The most seen issue with any electric golf car is poor battery upkeep. Poor upkeep can mean several different things ranging from lack of charging or not charging the battery at all to not checking water levels regularly or even letting corrosion eat away at the battery nodes. All of these things can lead to the discharging and deterioration of the batteries which eventually requires a new set for the car to function properly.  The Solenoid is another critical component that can commonly have issues. Usually when you turn the key switch on, you will hear a click sound that lets you know the car is running. If you don’t hear that sound, it can mean that you are having issues with the Solenoid due to corrosion, loose wires or a broken internal coil. Another common issue seen with golf cars has to do with the cars alignment. Alignment issues, just like in your regular car, can start as a minor nuisance, but if not looked at, can become damaging and very expensive to replace. Usually alignment issues occur when riding with low tire pressure or on uneven surfaces for a prolonged amount of time.

Gas golf cars: Just like in an electric car, damaged alignment is an issue we see often. Always bring your car in if you start to experience alignment problems. Another common issue seen in gas car is problems with the gas valve. Over time and with continued use, the gas valve can become problematic. Issues with the gas valve can be categorized into two major problems. The valve may not be letting enough fuel into the engine, which make starting the car difficult or not allow it to run at all, or the valve can be allowing too much fuel into the engine, which can cause backfiring issues as well as the engine becoming flooded, which will not allow the car to start. Wiring and fuse issues may also arise. While some fuses are easy to replace on your own, wiring issues need further inspection because different wiring connects to several locations including the alternator, engine, and ignition switch. Unless you are very familiar with the wiring of a golf car, these wires can easily become mixed up or damaged, which can lead to more serious issues within the golf car.

It’s great to use our tips and tricks to keep a golf car functioning properly, but sometimes further expertise is needed. Our service department is ready to support and fix any of these larger issues so that you can hit the greens and pavement again soon. Remember, happy car, happy life.
