Having a private golf cart is a great way to get around, and it can be a lot of fun to drive. However, many people don’t like using them during the winter and put them in storage. With the weather warming up and the new year beginning, it’s a good idea to start looking at how you can get your golf cart ready for spring.
Checking Your Batteries
Depending on what type of golf cart you have, you may have lithium-ion or lead-acid batteries. Even if you followed the proper steps for storing your lithium batteries in the winter, you might want to start getting them out and ensuring that they’re in working order. Clean your battery and check its charge before putting it back in your golf cart.
Examining the Tires
One of the most common things that can happen throughout colder weather is that the tires on your golf cart will lose pressure. If you try to drive around while your golf cart has low tire pressure, it may lead to permanent damage to your wheels. So grab your pressure gauge and make sure to fill those tires up to an appropriate level.
Give It a Good Cleaning
If you had your golf cart in storage over the winter, it’s probably collected some dust and dirt over the past several weeks. One way to get your golf cart ready for spring is to take it out, break out the hose, and give it a good cleaning. Spring is already a season we associate with cleaning, so take that time to make it look as fresh as possible.
Examine the Essentials
Depending on what type of golf cart you have, there are many things you may need to check, but an essential thing is ensuring that it works. Did the steering lock up during the winter, or are any of the rear-facing lights out? Giving your cart a thorough inspection before you take it out on the road is always a good idea.
