Golf Cart Fun: Personalize It, Decorate It, Accessorize It
Golf Cart Accessories, Decorate a Golf Cart for Holidays and Personalizing Your Golf Cart
Sure, golfers have fun out on the golf course riding around in their carts, but think beyond that. In many retirement communities, golf carts serve as a popular alternative to automobiles. Owners enjoy their scaled-down vehicles and like to personalize them.
Here are some fun things to do with your golf cart by adding accessories and decorative touches. I've also included ways to decorate your golf cart for holidays like the 4th of July, Mardi Gras or Christmas. Some golf cart communities have parades on those holidays so you can show off your "pimped out" golf cart.

Cleaning a golf cart is a bit like cleaning your car, but there are some precautions you should take. Here's how to spiff up that cart before it gets overly grubby.
Take Good Care of Your Golf Cart with This GOLF CART COVER
If you don't have a golf cart garage, protect your cart with this cover. It slips easily over the roof.
Choosing a Golf Cart
When first choosing a golf cart, think through how the cart will be used. If you have lots of visitors, it's likely that you'll want a rear seat so the cart can carry four people. Such a cart can still be fitted out for golf if you wish by adding a center post to attach the golf clubs to the back.
If the cart is mainly for golf, then in rainy areas like Florida opt for a pull-down cover for the club area. If there is frequent rain or some cold weather, then the cart will need a full enclosure that can be rolled into place for those chill days. Adding accessories like a heater or a fan can make it more comfortable as well.
