While golf carts used to be used strictly on the golf course, in recent years they have become increasingly popular as local modes of transportation; as a sort of mini-car. Due to an increase in use outside of the gold course, the price of golf carts fluctuate. A basic golf cart is, on average, $7500. For those who want to use a golf cart for individual transportation around their neighborhood, a golf cart can go as high as $30,000 or more. If you are on a budget, a refurbished golf card can be had for around $5000.
