Customizing Ezgo Txt Series Carts Is Not Such A Good Idea. How do I know? What makes me the expert to say such a thing? I don’t proclaim to be “an expert” for we all know an “ex”, well is just that and a spurt is a far comparison to a stream! However, I do own a golf cart dealership.

Here’s how to tell if you’re getting a good deal on a golf cart. Part 2

In the last blog we talked about one of the many instances of some well-intentioned people who, after coming to one of our dealerships, realized that the “good deal on a golf cart” that they thought or (worse yet) felt that they got wasn’t a good deal after all. We see this every week. Every week. Good people being taken advantaged of and oftentimes down right deceived when seeking a good deal on a golf cart.

Another sucker, I mean well intentioned person joins the group of disappointed individuals who thought they were getting a steal of a deal after purchasing a cheap golf cart.

I own a golf cart dealership located in North Florida. We sell and service golf carts, both electric and gas powered. There are far more electric powered golf carts than there are gas.
