Using a cart cover\ enclosure on a rented cart.


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

We are looking to join a course that is opening back up.

We play no matter the temps, as long as they are open.

If it is misting, or below 40??? we would like to use a cart cover\ enclosure.

Since this will be a rented cart, it will have to be installed and removed same day.

Does anyone have a recommended cover that will hold up to this?

We may install it twice in one week, and then not use it for 3 or more weeks.

We don't want a heavy duty ( 1 hour to install type), nor do we want a  (disposable) trash bag thin one.

I haven't ever seen a discussion on this before.

Thanks in advance.

My wife and I joined a local muni in 2015 and we play year round unless we get the occasional snowfall.  Our course leases Yamaha carts and gets new ones every 3 years.  The second winter they had enclosures for sale that were made for Yamaha carts; green, blue, or tan.  I think they were about $200.  Sorry I don't remember the brand, but this is the 5th year that we have used it.  Just put in on this morning for the first time this year.  It might be good for another year or two, so worth the money.  We are playing in the morning and I'll ask for the brand.

We put in on and take it off each use.  FYI, it very tricky to do this in the wind!!!!  We don't get much rain, but when we do it is usually accompanied with wind.  It's very effective on cold, sunny days.  On cloudy days, a propane heater makes it nice and toasty.

Just google golf cart covers and you find a bunch of online stores that sell covers. It's important to know the make and the model since these just slide over the top of the cart. I'd also agree with@kennyb
on the propane heater. Cover and heater = nice and cozy.

Thanks so much.

The ones with the ratchet tie ons seem to look better.

I'm guessing a $200 range would probably be best.

 

I haven't heard of anyone, using them on a rented cart.

It seemed a little crazy at first.

If it's windy, they will probably let me install it in the cart storage barn.

Thanks for the info, amd let me know what brand if you can.

I have a full enclosure for my cart that I bought from: https://www.extremekartz.com/. I don't know if they sell the type you're looking for, but for mine they were the least expensive online source for the same brand.

that’s worth taking a flier on at $60. if you get one winter out of it, that’s a win.

If it's the same material that they use for their grill covers, it'll last a lot more than one winter.

Took a picture of the label on our cover, and our cart loaded up this morning.  We had a frost delay, but got off at 9:45am.  Sunny, no clouds, and very little wind which is unusual.

Do any of you okay the same course all the time? Would they be willing to let you attach a cover on a cart throughout the winter?
I know people who did this in CT B4 I left there . They played almost every day course was open and cover was left on a cart. Worked out for both parties.

Mine has taken a beating in our wind, but it's held up fairly well.  I don't use it when it's more than 15mph, but when it's that windy it's usually warmer.

The zippers have held up really well; no issues that I've seen on cheap covers.  The clear plastic got one small crack in the back panel last year, but it's easily repaired.  At our old course, the pro installed some cheap covers on a few of his better looking carts, but they were one size fits all and well... they didn't fit very well; only lasted one season before they were trashed.  People didn't take care of them.

Several of the guys in our Men's Club play every morning.  The course lets them keep their covers on a cart all winter (for a fee of course) when they are stored inside the cart barn.  The put their names on the cover, and when the cart kid brings them out in the morning, they are staged in a separate area from the other carts.  

I don't play every day, so I don't do it.  It only takes maybe 5 minutes to put it on and take off... a little longer when it's windy!!

They used to leave the overs on by didn’t charge anything extra, just happy to have folks out there.

I'd check what kind of carts the club uses, Some of the new yamaha carts have bigger roofs and they don't fit as well.

I have this cart cover though.  It's going on 4 seasons and still works great.  A few other people at my course have gotten them and also like them.  Takes a couple mins to take it on and off, very easy.

Actually this was a Muni in CT. Carts were owned and rented by the Pro.

Ours are leased every 3 years by the City's management firm.  The pro gave up this spring when we had to have only one person per cart; he sat outside drinking vodka and shaking his head watching 4 carts on the 1st tee.
