When you’re looking to get a golf cart, one of the first things you want to know are what is how wide is a golf cart.
You also might be curious if you tow it anywhere, it helps to know the width so you can find the right size trailer for it.
General Golf Cart Dimensions
So how wide is a golf cart?
The standard golf cart is about 4 feet wide by about 8 feet long and usually is about 6 feet high. This is usually for the two seater and the backseat that folds over to allow for the golf clubs if you use it on a golf course. The average weight of a golf cart is between 900-1,000 pounds.
If you’re looking to get a golf cart enclosure, then knowing your width and length will help as well.
Now, you might be looking for the bigger, more robust golf carts and they will likely big a bit bitter. In fact, one of the longer golf carts is the Club Car XRT 850 SE 6 Passenger Limo that is 144″ long or 12 feet long. That’s 4 feet longer than most standard carts.
Since ours is a standard EZ-GO golf cart, I was able to get a 5X10 utility trailer to tow her when we go to the Anastasia State Park and want an easy transportation from our RV to the beach. We also use it to drive to the Amphitheater for their Saturday morning farmer’s market or for any concerts that they have.
We use our golf cart for neighborhood transportation and just getting around at music festivals or state parks and our standard size is perfectly sized for adding 2 people on the back, stocking up on our beach supplies, or just zooming down the road with some great music playing on our portable radio.
As you can see from the table below, there are a few variations in the sizes, but not by much for the standard golf carts. Knowing the width will help you figure out how best to trailer and tow the golf cart.

How Wide Should Your Trailer Be?
Since your standard golf cart is 4X8, you can get away with just having a 5X10 utility trailer to tow it with. Usually, these size trailers have a ramp like back that comes down so you can easily drive the golf cart up into the trailer. Then you can close the back and secure it in place.
We use this 5X10 when we need to haul our golf cart around. The back gate is off while we redeck it.
You’ll also want to strap down the tires so your golf cart doesn’t move around while you’re going down the road.
Will golf cart fit in truck bed?
Yes, if you have a standard truck and a standard golf cart, then it should fit snuggly in the truck bed. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is getting the golf cart into the bed of the truck. Most dealerships will help you load the golf cart in your truck, but you’ll also want to get ramps to get the golf cart out when you get home.
The easiest thing is to get a set of ramps that have a high load capacity of 1,500lbs and you’ll be fine since most golf carts range from 900lbs to 1,000lbs.
In addition to the ramps, you’ll want to make sure you have straps to tie down the golf cart in the truck bed, especially if you have to keep the tailgate down while transporting the golf cart. Many ramp kits will come with straps. Just make sure you use them.
Standard Dimensions for Golf Cart Garages
Many retirees who live in bigger retirement communities want to know the dimensions for their garage sizes. Although you could get away with a garage size of 7X15, many retirees wish they’d gone bigger for the garage because you always need more space for different reasons:
- To walk around the golf cart
- To store other things in the garage
- Extra room to maneuver
If you’re just looking for garage sizes you might want to consider a 10X20 that would be big enough for 2 golf carts or one golf cart and an area to work on things. You can also consider adding a golf cart mat to keep the garage floor clean.
