Decorate a Golf Cart for Christmas
Golf Cart Fun with Christmas Decorations and Christmas Parades
Will Santa show up in a golf cart this Christmas? Golf carts aren't just for golfing anymore. In many communities, the golf cart serves as a second car and people zip around in them just for fun. Some communities with lots of golf carts hold a Christmas parade. Even if you don't have a parade, you can still decorate your golf cart. You'll enjoy the surprise on people's faces when they see your Christmas themed golf cart coming.
Actually we're a two-golf cart family, since we keep one for running around our retirement community and keep the other one loaded up ready for the golf course.
I've even seen the golf cart serve as part of the Christmas yard decorations with the addition of lighted reindeer. Just put Santa and his pack of toy into the golf cart and make your yard stand out from all the rest on the street.
This parade in a retirement community in Florida is fun
Solivita Christmas Golf Cart Parade - south of Kissimmee, Florida
This is an evening parade, so it has lighted decorations on the carts. I really liked one cart that was decorated like an igloo. There were some other great ideas in the golf cart parade too. Solivita holds this parade annually, so I've added just one sample YouTube video for you. There are more, if you care to go to the site to watch them.

Add Some Red Underbody Glow Lights to the Christmas Golf Cart - The lights come in green, blue and other colors too
Choose a color, almost any color, and glow, glow, glow. The green would look quite festive on a red cart.
These are starting to catch on in our community. If you haven't seen them yet, be the first. Everyone will want them after they see your cart with that awesome glow under the body.
The underglow lights are so unexpected. And isn't that what you want?
These look great for a golf cart parade or for just driving around your community in the evening. The first time I saw these on a cart, I had to look them up. They look super.
Look at Party Light Sets And 12-Volt Light Strings of Lights
Right after Christmas is a good time to get some buys at the local hardware store or discount stores. Any place that carries Christmas lighting will usually have them on sale after the holiday. If you are lucky, they may be discounted 50% or even 75%.
Some wide angle lights give off a great glow.There are 12-volt lights and LED which gives quite a bit of light while using minimal power.

Use Lots of Poinsettias to Decorate a Christmas Golf Cart Like the One Below
When attaching garlands to the top of the golf cart, you could run cords or a netting across then tie the garlands to that.
Test it out by driving up and down your street to see if anything falls off, then you need to secure it more.
This cart had poinsettias front and back plus all across the top.
