There is a market for upscale golf carts and luxury car makers have taken note. Now you can purchase a golf cart inspired by Mercedes-Benz or Bentley and join the ranks of celebrity buyers.
If you’re an avid golfer and are in the market for an upgraded cart, here’s how you can cruise the golf course in style like Floyd Mayweather.
Floyd Mayweather's Bentley-style golf cart
The legendary boxer is well known for having expensive taste, even when he’s teeing up at one of the many golf courses in Las Vegas. Passing on the tradition, he bought his 15-year-old son a modified Bentley Golf cart for a luxurious birthday present, as reported by SBNation.
Although the automaker doesn’t actually sell golf carts, Bentley isn't new to the golf market. The ultra-luxury carmaker discovered that about 70% of their drivers also play golf and decided they wanted to enter that market, as reported by Forbes. An entire highly customized set of clubs from Bentley could cost roughly $100,000 to match your golf cart. The complete set features alligator skin grips and sterling silver ball markers, among other extravagances.
The rise of luxury golf carts
If Bentley isn't your style, there are plenty of other luxury options to choose from, including the F5 from Pennwick. Modeled after a Ferrari, this golf cart is small and only holds two people. Its dynamic red color and dramatic angles will give you flashbacks to ‘80s-style Ferraris. The F5 will set you back $20,500 as reported by Worthly.
If you need more room for passengers, may we recommend the California Roadster Limo by custom golf cart maker Cool Carts of Texas? This cart offers plenty of legroom for up to four passengers. Despite its size, the battery can still provide a range of 45-50 miles. If that's not enough, upgraded battery packs are available. The California Roadster Limo starts at $13,595.
But the most luxurious golf carts on the market come from Garia.
Instead of a novelty design, the Garia Via Golf Car has more practical intent for hardcore golfers, plus its actually street legal (where it’s permissible to drive a maximum of 25 mph, that is). All carts come stock with a touchscreen dash, ice boxes, leather upholstery, and a heated windshield.
This cart is highly customizable, but the two-seater base model starts at $22,598, according to Garia. Adding features can easily push the price towards $30,000.
A luxury golf cart inspired by Mercedes-Benz
In 2018, Garia released a limited edition run of the Golf Car inspired by Mercedes-Benz. Garia described it as “bridg[ing] the values of classic golf sport with the needs of the mobility of the future: connected, aesthetic, supreme and electric.” It has a sporty design, equipped with touchpad-controlled wipers, drive modes, and windshield wipers, as well as Bluetooth connectivity.
Street legal, the Golf Car can reach speeds of up to 43 mph, though 25 mph is the maximum speed permitted for a golf cart by law. The Garia Golf Car inspired by Mercedes-Benz Style certainly takes performance and sophistication to the next level.
