Golf Cart Enclosures and Covers

Why Cover A Golf Cart?

Jump to “How to Measure a Golf Cart for an Enclosure or Cover”

Aside from providing you increased comfort and increasing your ability to play a few rounds if there’s light rain (and no thunder, of course), golf cart enclosures and covers are a great way to avoid excessive dust buildup and keep pests out. They’re particularly fitting for golf carts that have to be stored outside.

Enclosures….

  1. Help limit exposure to the elements
    The main benefit of enclosures, is that they will provide some relief for the rider from dust, dirt, rain and wind.
  2. Prevent pests
    It cannot prevent certain critters from finding a way in, but a fully enclosed golf cart is more difficult for pests, such as spiders and bees to invade.

Covers…

  1. Help limit exposure to the elements
    Covers provide a layer of shielding between your cart and these elements when your cart is not in use. Wind can blow dust, dirt, and debris against your gear, causing weathering and scuffing. Covers help limit water accumulation directly on the product, especially when the cover has water resistant or waterproof qualities. This can help prevent rust and corrosion. Standing water and moisture can lead to mildewing*

    1. *Mildew (and mold) are fungi  that occur due to the interaction between water and organic material. Covers are only able to help limit this and require some cleaning and ventilation, so that organic elements that have made their way onto your gear don’t have a chance to grow.
  2. Provide protection from UV rays
    Direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of the light that does the most damage, increasing the longevity of your product at its current exposure level. This can be one way that golf cart seat covers are especially useful.
  3. Prevent pests
    Covers can make it more difficult for insects to find their way into the golf cart in the off season, as well as other unwanted rodents that would seek to nest in the equipment.
  4. Reduce cleaning time
    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year due to reduced exposure to dirt, dust, and pollen. Pollen can increase the rate of deterioration for a golf carts and their seating, so a cover can help prolong the lifespan of your cart given its current exposure levels.
  5. Aesthetics
    Full coverage golf cart covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your yard, taking the noisy shapes within a golf cart and reducing it down to a single form. Golf cart seat covers can clean up a well-worn seat, or protect it from particular environmental elements (salt and sand at a beach, for example).

 


How to measure a Golf cart for an Enclosure or Cover

 

Measuring a golf cart for a cover or enclosure is fairly self-explanatory. The style of roof is partially determined by the seating arrangement of the cart, but please do measure by hand to be certain. Also, please take care while measuring the roof, from whichever direction you decide to measure it. Having a friend help can be useful.

Average Golfer Report: TPC Scottsdale – Champions Course

Unforgiving hole 2 on TPC Scottsdale’s Champions Course.

 

I played this course in mid-March and, unsurprisingly, found it to be one of the most difficult I’ve played on.   Fair warning, I have a 13 handicap, don’t normally play courses this difficult, drive it around 260 and approach shots beyond 150 yards are probably the worst part of my game.  So please keep in mind that this is from a mediocre golfer’s perspective.  I ended up with a 92.

The par 4s in particular were difficult due to their length and bunker placement.  The course is set up perfectly to be very difficult for 13-handicappers like myself: I’m not long enough to get over the first wave of fairway bunkers and the course is narrow enough to really punish wayward drives and approaches.  The fairway bunkers have lips that are several feet high, essentially a one-stroke penalty unless your ball stops in the middle.  My ball did not stop in the middle.  So, you take your medicine and hit an 8 through wedge out and try and make it up on the approach.  I did not often make it up on the approach because the greens are pretty unforgiving, as well.  It had also torrentially rained the day before, but I’m not making excuses.  I’m just not that good.

Because I kind of suck, I actually hit the clubhouse patio on the 9th hole.  It’s a shortish par 5, and I popped my 3 wood into the bunker that keeps golfers like me from rolling their second shot into the drink.  There is another bunker that is between the fountain and the green.  So, I’m about 30 yards out.  With water in between me and the green, I did not want to be short so got a little too much out of the trap and flew the ball on the cart path where it bounced a million feet in the air, slowly but inevitably hopping into the plate glass of the restaurant.  A man kindly came out and threw me the ball while telling someone on his cellphone that some jackass had just hit a two-iron from 30 yards out.  Defeated, I picked up and went to 10 and wondered, for a moment, why I had actually spent money to experience this.

I actually did not love playing this course as much as some others in Arizona, and not just because I didn’t play that well.  It’s situated right next to a private airport and is directly in the flight path for landings.  It was extremely loud and not the peaceful desert sanctuary you get at the hundreds of other courses in the area.

All in all, it’s nice to be able to say I’ve played it but I actually enjoyed the more remote courses like Vista Verde or the Rio Verde complex more than TPC.  By no means am I saying I regret having this chance to hit the clubhouse on 9, hit about eight 9 irons out of near-pot bunkers that are  200 yards out, or search for my ball underneath flooded Madrona trees, but I’ll need to drop that handicap a few strokes before we meet again.

Ever run into a wild animal while you’re golfing?

After our coworker ran into a rattlesnake a couple weeks ago on a Palm Springs course, we got to thinking… What other animals mosey onto golf courses?

 

 

1. If this isn’t listed as a hazard, it should be. Meet the golf ball-hoarding fox, he lives in Switzerland.


2. Okay, it’s another fox – but he’s a babe.


3. Staring contest.

4. Chicken? Laying eggs.
