The team at Caddy Carts specializes in golf, personal transportation vehicles (PTV), low-speed vehicle (LSV), and custom cart fabrication. As the area’s only authorized dealer for Club Car, Garia, Streetrod (custom carts), and GEM (electric carts), we provide service, sales, parts, and rentals to support residents and businesses throughout the tri-county region.
