This article will cover all of the basic questions around the size of golf carts, from how tall is a golf cart? to will a golf cart fit on a truck?

So if you're moving to a golf resort and want your own cart, or if you need one for mobility reasons, let's look at some golf cart dimensions and find the right golf cart for you.

The average golf cart dimensions are 4 feet wide by 8 feet long by 5.5 feet high.

These dimensions are common to smaller golf carts that are commonly found for sale.

For a larger golf cart that seats up to six people, the dimensions rise to 4 feet wide by 11.5 feet long, and 5.5 feet tall.

Depending on the make and model of the golf cart in question, there will be a large difference in dimensions. Below we've covered some of the most popular brands brands, Yamaha and E-Z-GO and Club Car.

Golf Cart Trailer Dimensions

When purchasing a golf cart it is important to know how you're going to transport it around.

Many people choose to do so using a trailer. Most trailers that are 5 feet wide by 9 or 10 feet long will fit most carts.

Smaller trailers such as 5×8's should work fine as well. A 4×6 trailer is certainly pushing it though.

Will A Golf Cart Fit In The Back Of A Truck?

A full-size pickup truck with a four-foot wid truck bed should allow a cart to fit nicely.

Should the cart be a little longer or the truck be a standard size pickup, the owner of the truck can leave the tailgate down to increase the length. 

It is important to use a ramp to help load the golf cart. You can use one large ramp or two separate for the tires. For more info on tires for golf carts, you can check out our article, best golf cart tires. 

On average, golf carts weigh between 900 and 1100 pounds. It's not the easiest item to lift up. 

Some are lighter than others depending on the material it was made with and if they include a battery or not.

Golf Cart Basket Dimensions

The average dimensions for an E-Z-GO cart basket are 18.12″ x 10.25″ x 17.56″.

With these dimensions, it should be easy to fit a cooler with 12-18 cans in the back while keeping them cold and refreshing during a round of golf.

Depending on the size of the cans or the cooler, a person should not have a problem fitting closer to 24.

A heater is another critical golf cart component for the winter months and we have researched the best available in our buyer review.

Golf Cart Parking Dimensions

Depending on how often and how you are going to use your golf cart, it is important to know if it meets standard parking space dimensions.

In the United Kingdom, a standard size for a parking bay is recommended at 2.4 (7.9 feet) meters wide by 4.8 meters (16 feet) long

In the United States, the minimum standards for width on a parking space is around 8.5 to 9 feet. Most spaces will be between 16 to 20 feet deep. That is the standard DOT recommended depth for normal perpendicular parking.

According to a standard EZ GO electric cart requires a parking space approximately 4 feet by 8 feet.
