Last Updated on June 12, 2020 by Editorial Staff

If you have ever seen golfers pulling up to the clubhouse in their private golf carts you’ve probably imagined yourself owning one. This article will go over golf cart dimensions and list important factors such as sizes, brands and loading specifications when making a decision to buy a cart.

What Are The Dimensions Of A Golf Cart?

The average dimensions for a golf cart are 4 feet wide by 8 feet long by 5.5 feet high.

These dimensions are common to smaller golf carts that are commonly found for sale.

For a larger golf cart that seats up to six people, the dimensions rise to 4 feet wide by 11.5 feet long, and 5.5 feet tall.

Depending on the make and model, there will be a large difference in dimensions and some of the common brands include Yamaha and E-Z-GO.

EZ Go Golf Cart Dimensions

E-Z-Go was founded in 1954 and has its headquarters in Augusta, Georgia, the home of the Masters.

Below are the dimensions for three of the company’s common cart models:

Golf Cart Trailer Dimensions

When purchasing a golf cart it is important to know how you’re going to transport it around.

Many people choose to do so using a trailer. Most trailers that are 5 feet wide by 9 or 10 feet long will fit most carts.

Smaller trailers such as 5×8’s should work fine as well. A 4×6 trailer is certainly pushing it though.

Will A Golf Cart Fit In The Back Of A Truck?

A full-size pickup truck with a four-foot width in the bed should allow a cart to fit nicely.

Should the cart be a little longer or the truck be a standard size pickup, the owner of the truck can leave the tailgate down to increase the length. 

It is important to use a ramp to help load the golf cart. You can use one large ramp or two separate for the tires. For more info on tires for golf carts, you can check out our article, best golf cart tires

On average, golf carts weigh between 900 and 1100 pounds. It’s not the easiest item to lift up. 

Some are lighter than others depending on the material it was made with and if they include a battery or not.

Will A Golf Cart Fit In The Back Of A Truck?

Cunninghamgolfcar.com recommends backing the cart into the bed of the truck to lessen the amount of weight on the tailgate due to most of the weight on golf carts being on the two rear wheels. 

Always be sure to measure the truck bed and analyze the dimensions before trying to load the cart.

Checking your truck’s manual for weight and payload capacity is also extremely important.

Golf Cart Basket Dimensions

The average dimensions for an E-Z-GO cart basket are 18.12″ x 10.25″ x 17.56″.

With these dimensions, it should be easy to fit a cooler with 12-18 cans in the back while keeping them cold and refreshing during a round of golf.

Depending on the size of the cans or the cooler, a person should not have a problem fitting closer to 24.

A heater is another critical golf cart component for the winter months and we have researched the best available in our buyer review.

Golf Cart Parking Dimensions

Depending on how often and how you are going to use your golf cart, it is important to know if it meets standard parking space dimensions.

In the United Kingdom, a standard size for a parking bay is recommended at 2.4 (7.9 feet) meters wide by 4.8 meters (16 feet) long

In the United States, the minimum standards for width on a parking space is around 8.5 to 9 feet. Most spaces will be between 16 to 20 feet deep. That is the standard DOT recommended depth for normal perpendicular parking.

According to E-Z-GO.com a standard E-Z-GO electric cart requires a parking space approximately 4 feet by 8 feet.

Conclusion

After reading this article you should be able to make an easier decision about purchasing a golf cart and be more prepared when it comes time to loading or park it.

Having the right dimensions with the correct trailer or truck can work wonders when transporting your cart.

Feel free to share your experiences with golf carts whether you owned, rented or used one.
