Best Golf Cart Covers 2017 – Review

While not essential to how you play the game of golf, a golf cart can be important. If you are carrying around heavy bags of clubs all day on a hot golf course, a golf cart almost becomes needed to avoid exhaustion (alongside plenty of water!).

And much like your favorite drivers, if you are a golf cart owner, chances are you would like to protect them. And it is for that reason that we bring you today's list.

If you are a golf cart owner yourself, looking to protect your expensive cart from weather damage, or a golf course manager looking to do much the same for your rentals, this list will have something for you.​

By this time you are probably wondering what we are talking about. Well, golf cart covers, of course! These protective tarps will keep your golf cart clean and dry, protecting it from the elements, and today we are going to take a look at the best of them!​

Our Best Golf Driver for Beginners Pick: TaylorMade R15 430

Formosa Covers is best known for making any types of covers - from golf carts to BBQ grill to umbrellas, and its Deluxe Golf Cart cover lives up to its name. It is NOT a cheap nylon cover like most others on the market but heavy, UV covered polyester making it stronger than most golf cart covers. It also has zippers for easy access and vents to prevent condensation, keeping the cover hassle-free. It can be used for different types of golf carts which makes it very versatile.

Formosa Covers Deluxe 4 Passenger Golf Cart Cover

From Formosa Covers, our first golf cart cover is an under $70 option that is available for larger, four person golf carts. If you have one of said carts, then the Deluxe Golf Cart Cover may be a great option for you.

This large golf cart cover is made of a heavy, UV covered Polyester, which makes it stronger than the usual nylon material used in other golf cart covers.

This makes it more durable and longer lasting than some covers, with it not being able to rip and tear easily.

The Deluxe Golf Cover has many other features that cart owners would love. This includes a rear zipper that allows easy access to the cart without removing the cover, as well as two front and rear vents to prevent excess condensation.

Probably the most essential feature this cover has is its versatility, as the cover can be used on many different brands of golf carts, including Yamaha, Club Car, and EZ Go. With this and the other features available, this is definitely one of the best golf cart covers on the market.

Classic Accessories Fairway Golf Cart Easy-On Cover

Our number two entry for today is a cover from Classic Accessories called the Easy-On Cover, designed for the golf cart of the same name. Available for two person and four person golf carts, the Easy-On is a golf cart cover that gives what you pay for.

To begin, this golf cart cover has an elastic hem around the edges of the cover, allowing for a custom fit if your cart runs a little on the larger or smaller sides

It also has rear vents to prevent moisture and air lofting, and a rear zipper for easy access, much like our prior cover.

If rain damage is something you are particularly concerned about, then this cover is a good choice for you. This is because the Easy-On cover is designed with a tough material that was treated for water resistance, making sure to keep your golf cart nice and dry on stormy days.

While they are generally good covers, not all of the covers maintain the same quality. Some people have had issues ranging from the fit of the cover, to how well said cover holds up to stress.

Even though this is a bit of a setback for this Classic Accessories cover, the majority of people that have bought it seem to like it. And with a modest price point starting at $40, it's an affordable option for many a cart owner.

Things We Liked

  • Weather protected fabric
  • Custom fit for all sizes cart

Things We Didn't Like

  • Inconsistent quality

Summates Golf Cart Cover

The Summates Golf Cart cover is next up on the list. Available in multiple sizes, colors and price options, the Summates cover brings to you more of what was great about our first two entries.

To start, the Summates comes with a similar snug-fit, elastic cord hem, similar to the Easy-On Cover at number two. This makes it versatile for fitting varying sizes of golf carts.

Another similar feature this one has to the other two are the rear zipper access in the cover, as well as the vents for moisture and loft reduction. For when you remove the cover, the Summates comes with a storage bag included, making it easy to pack away the cover when not in use.

What does set this one apart from the others on this list is the price point, which is cheaper than the other options so far. Also the setbacks described in the last entry do not seem to apply to this one, with the cover being able to fit multiple carts and maintain durability, despite being made of the less then sturdy nylon.

Overall, this is a great and affordable cover. This is certainly the choice of cover you want to make if you are on a budget.

Things We Liked

  • Rear end vents
  • Storage bag included

Things We Didn't Like

  • Made of nylon (less sturdy)

CarsCover HD Golf Cart Cover

In stark contrast to our last cover, the CarsCover HD comes with a hefty price tag of nearly $80 dollars. If you didn't immediately skip ahead after reading that, then you may discover that the price tag is well worth it.

To start, the CarsCover HD really is made with options in mind, because it is able to fit on nearly any make and model of golf cart. From Yamaha to the G Max, this golf cart cover will likely be able to fit your cart.

The material is another unique aspect of this cover, being made from five layers of fleece lining. This material is also treated to be weather and waterproof, making it one of the strongest golf cart covers on the list.

Of course, the major drawback is the price. With other options available at a price point that is more than double of some golf cart covers, the price of the CarsCover HD may seem a bit steep.

But that price is really a small price to pay for unparalleled protection. If you can afford it, the strength and durability of the CarsCover HD will give you your money's worth.

Things We Liked

  • Strong and durable material
  • Weather and waterproof
  • Versatile

Things We Didn't Like

  • Relatively expensive

Brightent Golf Cart Cover

For our last item today, we are going to the opposite end of the spectrum with the super affordable Brightent Golf Cart Cover. For the affordable price of $25-30 dollars, the Brightent may be the best budget option available.

So what do you get for the price you pay?

Quite a bit actually, including a plastic bottom hem that helps to cut down on the influence wind has on the tarp.

You also get a tough and durable material with the Brightent Golf Cart Cover. The cover is made of a water resistant, woven Polyester, which makes the cover both strong and waterproof.

Obviously there are a few setbacks that you get with the cheaper price. The cover does lack some features of the other covers, such as vents and a back zipper, and the material of the tarp, while waterproof, may not hold up against some other weather conditions as well.​

You cannot complain too much with the price however. The Brightent is a great and strong golf cart cover, and it won't cost you much more than a large pizza.​

Things We Liked

  • Cheap
  • Waterproof
  • Strong, double-stitched

Things We Didn't Like

  • Lacks features like vents and zippers
