Show your golf cart how much you care by snagging some sweet accessories that will make all the other golfers at the club ultra-jealous. From vanity license plates to tricked-out accessories, this list will make your golf car even more exciting than your actual car.

Some are more appropriate for the golf cart owner who just wants a little extra attention. Yet some of the items are perfect for safety at night.
Most of these tricked out golf cart accessories can be purchased online and some need to be special ordered. Talk to your golf cart mechanic about installation and the right type of accessories to fit your particular model of golf cart.
Vanity License Plate
One of the most popular golf cart accessories on the market, vanity license plates can personalize your golf cart and make it your own. You can get vanity plates to celebrate your marriage, your affinity to a particular sports team or to show your love for your pet. If you’re really into vanity license plates, you can get crazy and opt for the license plate covers too. These come in a variety of different colors, patterns and styles, so you can show off your true self. Gold se plate covers can show off a heart of gold, while pink license plate covers would be perfect for the female golfer.
May the Course Be with You Keychain
Every golf cart needs keys to drive (except for electric ones), so anyone driving a golf cart will need a key chain to keep their keys intact. “Star Wars” fans will especially love the ‘may the course be with you’ keychain. A snappy little motto, a little picture of Yoda and a sure-fire way to keep your keys together is all it takes to promote a great game of golf. If you’re not a huge “Star Wars” fan, there are plenty of other golf cart keychains to float your boat. Other styles include the evolution of golf (shown as an ape turning into a golfer) and the famous weed whacker keychain.

Golf Cart Stereo
Your car is already decked out with the best sound system available. Why should your golf cart be any different? Set your golf cart above all the rest by installing a killer golf cart sound system. Golf carts can be fitted with most types of sound systems that fit in cars. All you need is a mechanic that has a little ingenuity and some know-how to get the job done. You can set your golf cart up with a CD player, sweet speakers and fit everything to play MP3s. You can even set up a Bluetooth system, so you don’t even need to hook your phone up to the speakers. Ask your mechanic to set up a JL Power wedge subwoofer to add plenty of bass to your already rocking system. The entire golf course will know you’re coming and probably encourage you to play through.
Golf Cart Seat Warmers
You love golfing so much you’re even willing to play on a chilly day. Impress your golf buddies by installing seat warmers into your golf cart. Your warmers will keep everyone’s tushies nice and warm between holes. The only downside is that you won’t want to leave the cart to go play some golf. Heated seats are available in a few styles. You can go for the cheaper option, which is to install seat warmer covers on top of your current golf cart seats. These can be specially made in different colors and sizes to ensure your golf cart looks as sharp as possible. Or, you can really splurge and get golf cart seats that are already outfitted for cooler weather. Both options generally run on exterior batteries, so you’re not sucking the precious battery life from your golf cart. These seats and covers can be purchased at nearly any store that sells golf cart accessories and supplies.
High Performance Golf Cart Motors
Your golf cart is already looking pretty sweet. What could possibly make it better? How about its performance? Your cart looks, sounds and feels pretty good now that you’ve added some high-end accessories. It should probably drive relatively fast, too.

These super specialized engines can start at around only $400 and can go for up to a few thousand dollars. They can add speed and torque to your car, so you can get to the next hole in less time. Other ways mechanics can intensify your golf cart’s speed is by increasing your battery power and stamina. Talk to your mechanic about increasing the size of your tires or gears, too. With a little tweaking, your golf cart can go from zero to 60 in less time than you can say, “Golf cart.”

Colored Dome Lights
Just as your car’s dome light shines the way when you lose your keys, your golf cart’s dome lights are equally important. Give your golf cart a little style and class with dome lights that reflect your personality. You can opt for a colored dome light that gives of a hazy blue, purple or reddish hue. You could even snag a disco ball dome light. Strobe lights let everyone know where you’re parked in the dark. Just make sure to turn off your crazy dome lights when you’re driving.

You could go the simple route and install a dome light that turns on via Bluetooth censor or through an app on your phone. That way, your cart is lit up when you are near, and you don’t ever need to worry about finding it.
