The Best Gas Golf Carts

By Glenn Mcanally

More and more often these days, you will see golf carts not just on the golf course but on side roads and even main streets. Golf carts are an indispensable part of a golf course since they allow golfers to play faster and thus enable more players to get through the course in a single day. Gas-powered golf carts will travel almost twice as fast as an electric cart. If you are considering a gas cart for a golf course or personal use, the following list will provide the names of the most respected manufacturers of gas carts.

Yamaha Drive Gas Golf Cart

Yamaha is a respected leader in the industry. Its Drive Gas Golf Cart retails for about $5,000. It has a single-cylinder engine with approximately 11 horsepower and a top speed of 15 MPH. It has a tight turn radius of about 9 feet, and its tank holds 6.6 gallons. Two people can fit in this smoothly riding vehicle. Most parts are sealed well, so there is no risk of corrosion from water exposure.

Club Car Precedent I2L

Club Cars are made by Ingersoll Rand, which is the largest manufacturer of golf carts in the United States. Its latest gas-powered version I2L has a Kawasaki 11.5-horsepower engine with a tank that holds 6.7 gallons. You will enjoy quick acceleration and speeds of more than 19 MPH with minimum noise and vibration. Take on those steep hills to take your next swing that much sooner. The MSRP for the I2L is $8,204.


EZ-Go is the world's largest manufacturer of utility carts and has a reputation for producing long-lasting, durable vehicles. The two-passenger RXV gas-powered vehicle has a 13-horsepower engine that allows it to travel up to 16.8 MPH. It retails for $6,250.
