Come and ride in an EMC golf buggy at Central Coast Holden!
We've all seen them on lifestyle and travel shows; holiday-makers
trawling around island resorts in specially modified golf buggies. These
cute little vehicles are invaluably practical and, more importantly, a
safer option in most locations. They are relatively small, easy to get
in and out of, extremely quiet…and so fun to ride in!
Whilst an ideal and fun form of transport on a holiday getaway,golf
buggies are in much wider use than you may realise. Overseas in Europe
and the USA and often within gated communities and quiet suburban areas,
there is even a special registration category that allows them to be
driven on low speed roads, just like a small car.
In Australia, most state and territory Transport Authorities have a
special ‘Conditional Registration’ category, which allows this type of
low speed vehicle to be registered and driven on some roads. In fact,
there are literally thousands of these brilliant machines in operation
throughout Australia; and not just in resorts – you’ll find them at
airports, in shopping centre car parks, parks and gardens, factories,
shipyards and Naval bases, Police academies, detention centres, prisons,
vineyards and farms. There are even golf cart-based hearse vehicles
utilised in cemeteries and crematoriums.
These golf cart-style electric vehicles are used to transport both
people and also a diverse array of equipment and instruments. Golf cart
utility vehicles can be found hard at work on many mine sites, which
transport people, equipment and documents throughout the enormous sites
with maximum efficiency. Alternatively, when a major rock concert,
festival, opera in the park or market event is being setup, you'll often
see numerous golf carts cruising around, helping carry equipment and
goods, transporting VIPs and restocking food throughout the event.
Security companies also find golf carts to be the ideal vehicle to
patrol many areas, due to their quiet, efficient and manoeuvrable
qualities. Furthermore, flower, food and fish markets all utilise low
speed golf carts to guarantee that perishable good are handled as
efficiently and safely as possible, and to ensure maximum freshness.
So where do all these special purpose electric vehicles come from? Where
are the hundreds of thousands of vehicles in use around the
world actually sourced? After all, you don't see golf cart dealerships on
