Yamaha Golf Carts

By Chad Buleen

Yamaha makes golf carts for more than just weekend golfers trying to get from tee to green. In addition to fleet carts for customers, Yamaha also makes utility golf carts for greens keepers and refreshment carts that carry chilled beverages and snacks.
 

Types

Fleet golf carts primarily designed to carry golfers and their clubs from hole to hole. Utility carts allows maintenance workers to store equipment, such as shovels, weed eaters and rakes, that they use to maintain the course. You can also buy refreshment carts from Yamaha that feature display cases and beverage dispensers. Personal golf carts also are available for running errands or getting around the neighborhood.

Features

Yamaha's electric golf carts feature regenerative braking systems that extend battery life by using the motor as a generator. This means you can drive down a hill and at the same time recharge the battery. However, you must remember to apply the parking brake or the cart will continue to inch along. If you forget to apply the parking brake, an audible alarm will sound.

Benefits

One of the main benefits of buying a Yamaha fleet cart is that the bag wells are the biggest in the industry. The bag wells also are low to the ground, making loading and unloading your golf bag easier. The wells also have drainage holes so water does not collect there when it rains. The Yamaha golf cart also boasts one of the largest interiors in the industry. 

Accessories

Yamaha also offers accessories for its golf carts. They include headlight kits, folding windshields, CD players, coolers and storage covers.
