Golf carts may have been invented for use on golf courses, but many people and industries now use golf carts for various other purposes.

Here are three great uses that you might not have considered.

1. Getting Around Town

If you only use a vehicle to get around town, run errands, transport groceries to your home, and visit local friends and family, a golf cart is a low-maintenance and affordable alternative to a car.

Though, you’ll need to ensure you buy or modify a golf cart that is legally able to ride on streets.

As long as you follow the law and DMV registration rules, you can ride in your golf cart on roads at up to thirty-five miles per hour.

2. Going on Off-road Adventures

Most people only consider ATVs when deciding to go on off-road adventures, but golf carts can be modified, such as by changing the battery and the wheels and tires, to make them ideal for tackling rugged terrain. And a golf cart can be much more affordable than an ATV.
