Yamaha Golf Car Company Newnan, Georgia 770-254-4154


Yamaha Golf-Car Company reports that it has been chosen as the golf car provider to the four courses at the Jekyll Island Golf Club in Georgia, according to company president Tom McDonald. Yamaha recently installed 180 of its innovative new Drive2 electric golf cars at all three 18-hole courses at Jekyll Island – Pine Lakes, Indian Mound and Oleander – plus the nine-hole Great Dunes course just in time for the 37th Annual Georgia-Florida Golf Classic where 200 players got the chance to experience the brand new fleet equipped with the all-new YamaTrack GPS system. Additionally, Yamaha will provide 18 multi-passenger, beverage units and utility vehicles as part of the agreement. Jekyll Island, whose golf heritage dates back to 1898, is the southernmost in a string of barrier islands called the Golden Isles, located off the Atlantic coast of southeast Georgia. Recognizing that Jekyll Island’s natural beauty and vibrant history set it apart from any other coastal retreat, in 1947 the governor and the Georgia State Legislature established the island as a state park and entrusted its care to the Jekyll Island Authority. Today, the Jekyll Island Golf Club is a vital department of the Jekyll Island Authority. In addition to golf, the amenities on Jekyll Island include 10 miles of pristine beaches, tennis, croquet, miles of biking trails, fishing and boating, horseback riding, dolphin cruises and a variety of ecotourism options. The

island boasts a rich history, including the Jekyll Island Club, the original winter retreat built in 1886. It served as a private retreat for such influential families as the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and Pulitzers. Today, the Queen Anne-style structure is nestled in the heart of the Jekyll Island National Historic Landmark District. Yamaha President Tom McDonald was quoted, “We are so pleased to welcome Jekyll Island to our growing golf car family. Both Yamaha and Jekyll Island are excited to work together towards the common goal of providing an unforgettable experience for people who play at this wonderful facility.” The golf cars installed at Jekyll Island’s 18-hole courses are equipped with Yamaha’s innovative new YamaTrack GPS high-resolution touch screen system, which provides vivid hole diagrams, precise golf course yardages, two-way messaging with the golf shop and a menu from McCormick’s Grill in the clubhouse. Future software updates will include the ability to order food in advance. YamaTrack is a cloud-based fleet management utility that allows the course to monitor pace-of-play, ensure proper fleet rotation and security and even set geofences to control golf car traffic around greens and tees, as well as around Jekyll Island’s many eco-sensitive areas.

ChoosingAHEATER No one wants to be cold! Choosing a golf cart heater can help you stave off the chill on those days when the temps are low. When you have a good, reliable golf cart heater installed you can play longer into the season and with more comfort. But how do you decide which type is best for you and your vehicle? That is the trick and we hope to help you by offering some tips on this subject. One of the very first things you need to do before you go out and buy any type of golf cart heater is stop and consider the current state of your vehicle. If your vehicle is pretty snug and airtight you can use a lower powered heat source. The reason for this is simple: your enclosure will hold the warmth longer. If, on the other hand, your vehicle is not very snuggly and airtight, you will certainly need to purchase a unit that can deliver more BTU’s. Failure to do this might result in the unit you buy being totally worthless to you and your passengers.

maximize the warmth that is delivered is to tape off or seal as many air holes as you can. This may make your vehicle look odd, but you can always take the tape off when the weather warms up. In terms of types, you have two main options. One is the propane cylinder type of golf cart heater and the other is the electric type. Most golfers today prefer to use the more compact propane type. These require refilling after about seven hours of use, but they can deliver a lot of warmth at a low cost. These units can be removed with you as you leave the vehicle and can even be used in other areas such as the garage or the boat. Newer models do not require you to light with a match or other type of open flame. This type of golf cart heater is very safe to use and very good at warming up small enclosures. The other option is to have an electric golf cart heater installed permanently onto the engine. This type does not require any refueling as it works off the heat generated by the engine. This choice is more expensive upfront as installation is required. However, this choice is less expensive over the long run as there is no need to buy propane. Either choice is good when it comes to buying a golf cart heater but do take some time beforehand to consider which will work best for you and your needs.

In terms of BTU’s, a fairly airtight vehicle can be warmed with a unit that delivers anywhere from 2500 to 3000 BTU’s. This is enough warmth to knock off the chill and raise the inside temperature of the vehicle about 25 degrees. If your vehicle is not very airtight, you should consider buying a golf cart heater that can deliver much more on the BTU count. There are units available to can go as high as 10,000.

Designed by a retiree of the Villages, Sean became aware of the inconvenience and potential dangers of the blinding glare of the sun. After an exhausting search he realized that there simply weren’t any visors available in today’s marketplace. So he put his ingenuity to the test and make the visors himself. He quickly became the envy of fellow golfers, so he created a formal design and patented his creation. Golf Cart Visors, LLC was officially born! The Easy View visor blocks blinding sun glare, which has been a cause of documented accidents, and when in the down position it deflects the wind. It also speeds up play as you can find your ball while facing directly into the sun. No more turning your back to the sun!

Perhaps it is time to change the name, “golf car” to “everything car” because it seems as if golf car owners are continuously finding creative ways to use their cars to improve their lives in awesome ways. Sure, we still see golf cars on the green, but they are also in the woods, by the lake, and casually cruising through neighborhoods. If you have only been using your golf car for one purpose or (SHAME!) your golf car is sitting unused, consider these five ingenious ways to maximize your golf car’s potential. Hunting and Fishing By now you have likely seen golf cars manufactured to forge new paths and navigate the unknown, but do you realize that your golf car can do the same thing? Transforming your golf car into a full time hunting buggy is a big commitment, but a few small additions are all you need to get your golf car to the lake or deer stand by next weekend. If fishing is your thing, add a few PVC pole holders to the back of the car or install a rear seat fishing pole attachment. Now you are ready to back up to the water or the dock and fish the day away. No need to drive or hike to your local hunting spot. Add some offroad tires, a golf car gun rack, and a cooler of drinks and your golf car can double as a hunting buggy. With a touch of camo and a roof rack, there is no limit to the game you haul home.

My Golf Car Can Be Used For What!? 5 Creative Ways To Use Your Golf Car

By Julie Wilson, Owner WHEELZ Custom Carts & Accessories

Exploring We all get set in our routines and sometimes we find that we aren’t stopping to smell the roses. Hop in your golf car and drive down that street you pass by every day. Veer off the sidewalk and explore the gravel trail at the end of your road. Drive over to the community next to yours and check out the landscaping. Golf cars allow us to travel farther and faster, but still be out in the fresh air taking in the sounds, smells, and sights of our environment. It is amazing how much there is to experience when we deviate from our daily routines and explore a bit. Business Use We love our personal golf cars for golfing and cruising around our neighborhoods, but have you thought about how your car can be used to improve your business? Here are just a few ways: • Real Estate. Not only is the use of a golf car professional, realtors can provide a more personal experience when they immerse their clients in a community with the use of a golf car. Showing multiple properties within a community is simple and fun when a golf car is used. • Photography. Provide multiple locations for outdoor photo shoots with the use of your golf car. Hop on the car and travel from site to site with ease. Your clients will think it is fun, too. • Advertising. Don’t allow your golf car to sit in your garage all day when you can use it to advertise your small business. By hanging a banner, flying some balloons, and parking the golf car out front, you have created a unique marketing attraction.


Events Are you planning an event like a reunion or a wedding? Many times, offsite parking is necessary for large events and your golf car is the perfect solution. No one likes walking distances in fancy clothes and uncomfortable shoes, especially in extreme temperatures, rain, or snow. Provide an upscale experience using golf cars to transport guests from their vehicles to the front door. If one golf car isn’t enough, gather your golfing buddies and arrange to use their golf cars, also. Socializing Where there is one golf car, there are usually more. Hanging out in golf cars is a great way to socialize with friends and meet new people. Every Friday night during football season, the local high school end zone is crowded with the golf cars of former players and students huddled up to cheer on their team. RV parks have areas where everyone seems to gather on golf cars enjoying a cocktail or listening to music. Many gated communities also have gathering places for residents on their golf cars showing off their latest customizations. Get out to rekindle friendships and meet new people. Your golf car is the perfect ice breaker. We love hearing about the many ways that golf cars are used. Jump on over to our Facebook page and let us know how you use your golf car.

The Owner of WHEELZ Custom Carts & Accessories, Julie Wilson was one of the industry’s first on-line retailers of golf car products. Her eCommerce store, www.WHEELZLLC. com, has been serving golf car owners since 2008 and the store remains a popular on-line shopping experience for golf car owners who want to take their golf cars to the next level.

Golf Carts, Ghosts & Glitter 52nd Annual Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade

52nd Annual Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade “Golf Carts, Ghosts & Glitter” Title Sponsors: City of Palm Desert, Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce Presented by: The Auen Foundation Grand Marshal: John Callahan, Actor

The Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade, the largest parade of its kind in the world, celebrated 52 years on October 30, 2016. This oneof-a-kind parade is the longest running in the Coachella Valley. Not only is the parade much more than a fun, colorful and festive event, it serves as a completely unique vehicle for bringing the community together! Our desert tradition began in 1961 and was traditionally held in the summer

months for the locals. Now, the Golf Cart Parade is held on the last Sunday in October and has now been deemed the “unofficial kickoff to the season”, drawing more than 25,000 spectators to the Valley from all over the world. “It’s is a happy, good feel family day,” says Laurie Baldwin, IOM and President of the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce. “As a newcomer to the Valley, last year


was my first year to experience the whirlwind, the school bands, and the phenomenal floats on carts. The Golf Cart Parade is the best way to celebrate the Desert community, and I was overwhelmed by the camaraderie and energy I felt watching and participating.” The Parade stepped off along El Paseo at 12 p.m. with this year’s theme: “Golf Carts, Ghosts & Glitter.” The cavalcade featured

decorated electric golf carts, larger than life floats, marching bands galore, food booths, children’s games, celebrities, and dignitaries. Notably, the Palm Desert City Council golf cart, the 21st Division Marine Band, the Palm Springs Air Museum Fly-Over, and the world famous Bob Hope cart makes its appearance each year. The day is full of activities and amenities that will keep your belly full and your family smiling, meeting new neighbors and celebrating our own golfers’ paradise. The Palm Desert Rotary Pancake Breakfast was at 7:30am. Located at the corner of San Luis Rey and El Paseo. This is an annual favorite and perfect start to the day.   Golf Cart Show opens at 9am on El Paseo. Distributors and owners brought the latest in souped-up, historic and hotrod carts for display. Spectators voted for the People’s Choice Cart.   “Main Street Seats” are prime parade seating. Thanks to our sponsors, Eisenhower Medical Center, VIP Reserved Seating was available for only $25. Seating

includes boxed lunch, drink, and bragging rights! The VIP seats are ideal for corporate partners, and families alike. Reservations are accepted so be sure to call ahead next year. For the 9th year in a row, the Auen Foundation was the sponsor of the Senior Seating area! Three hundred lucky seniors aged 65 year’s young enjoyed FREE reserved seats and a boxed lunch at no charge. These seats fill very fast and reservations are required. Call 760/346-6111. The Children’s Area and Food Vendors opened from 10am - 2pm. The Children’s Area is chock-full of hands-on and interactive games, crafts, face painting, a bounce house and more! After working up an appetite, the variety of food vendors is sure to please every palette and keep you cool with cold drinks too! Maps, photos and more: or call the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce at 760-346-6111. Also find them on Facebook!

• This I’ve gotten several requests to talk about

Solenoid [contactor] won’t close

some of the older carts. So let’s look back at the earlier style series drive. Whether its mechanical with resistor coils or electronic with a solid-state controller the basics are a lot alike. E-Z-Go, ClubCar, Yamaha, Taylor-Dunn, Cushman and many others are more similar than they are different. A series drive system delivers the same amount voltage at the same time to both the field and the armature of the motor... simple. A separately excited system, commonly called “Regen” does not deliver same amount voltage at the same time to both the field and the armature of the motor. This requires a much more complex controller. We’ll discuss this system some other time. In a golf cart and most other electric drive system there are two circuits. All the small wires are part of the Logic or Control circuit. All the large wires are part of the Power or Drive circuit. Most series systems are 36 volts. Simply put the voltage flows through the Logic circuit via switches and relays to control the flow of voltage through the Power circuit from the batteries to the motor. Yeah, you may need to read that a couple times. let it sink in. It is that simple. Here’s the best place to start testing a cart, any cart. Is there voltage in the battery pack? If there is, does the solenoid click when you try to drive it? If not start with the test below for series cars. NOTE: This test does not include the 48 volt Club-Cars with the OBC that we talked about last month.

There are roughly three reasons the solenoid won’t close, or even click. 1] The contactor has some sort of defect and needs to be replaced. 2] Its not receiving positive switching voltage. 3] Its not receiving negative switching voltage. Before you do any of these tests lift the drive wheels off the ground, the car may move unexpectedly. The positive input is via the 16 gauge wire attached to one of the small posts of the solenoid. The color could be red, blue, orange or one of several other colors. To test this input 1] Attach a volt meter red probe to this post and black probe to the battery last negative. 2] Turn the key on, select forward, and depress the accelerator. The solenoid should click and you should see full pack voltage. If you do this side of the circuit is ok. If not the problem is in one of the switches; Key, F&R micro, accelerator micro, etc. or the interconnecting wiring. The negative input is via the 16 gauge wire attached to the other small post of the solenoid. This wire could be bleak, blue with a white stripe or one of several other colors. Many times this wire is attached directly to the B- buss bar on the controller. To test this input 1] Attach a volt meter black probe to this post and red probe to the battery last positive. 2] Turn the key on, select forward, and depress the accelerator. The solenoid should click and you should see full pack voltage. If you do this side of the circuit is ok. If not the problem is in interconnecting wiring or the B- source. •

Panther Motors was born in Deerfield Beach, Florida in 2004 with the vision of creating the world’s finest three wheeled, side by side scooters. We pioneered our side by side motorcycle reverse trike design into a viable and reliable product, becoming the first ADMPX1427merican manufacturer to bring the concept to market. Over 12 years years later, our success has inspired other manufacturers to apply our concept into larger displacement vehicles but our P50 and P150 ScootCoupe remain the only low displacement side by side motorcycles available in America today. Designed for commercial use, our initial product, the P49 ScootCoupe, became a sensation with rental companies and personal users due to its reliability and style. Over the years our product has evolved into the market leader in its class. As always, the commercial grade construction of the P50 and P150 set the mark for quality and reliability in the three wheel market. Our experienced design and product support team puts us miles ahead of the competition, and we remain committed to delivering the finest products and customer service in the industry.

Have you ever said to yourself “I’d love to get a computer, if only I could figure out how to use it.” Well, you’re not alone.

4 Cheap Ways To Store Your Golf Car Golf season is ending for the winter months in many states. What will you do with your golf car during the off-season? You can park it in the garage and forget about it until spring if you have space. Even then, there are a few preparations that you will need to make to winterize your golf car so that it is ready to go when the winter frost thaws and it is time to hit the course again. So, make sure you prep your golf car no matter where you store it. Here are four inexpensive ways to store your golf car.


IN YOUR GARAGE OR CARPORT The cheapest place to store your golf car is in your own garage or carport. If you can tuck it away in a corner, the only cost you will have is the time that you need to prepare it for storage. The cost is small and if you have space this is ideal. Many homes, though, do not have the space for extra storage and some homeowners associations frown on extra items cluttering carports and outdoor areas. Storage prep is important no matter where you store it. BUY A COVER You may have space for your golf car in your garage, under a carport, or in a shed on your property if outdoor storage is permitted in your neighborhood. Even if it is under a roof, a cover for your golf car will protect it from the elements, dust, and sunlight if it is stored outdoors. Covers can be custom made to fit your brand of golf car perfectly so that it is protected from top to bottom. This will prevent damage from rain, ice, and snow if you need to store your golf car outside and from dust if you are storing it inside. Can’t afford a custom-sized cover? A good quality tarpaulin or generic golf car cover will do the job at half the cost. RENT A STORAGE UNIT If you do not have a covered area for your golf car, space in your garage, or a carport, a storage unit may be your best solution for long-term storing. Rental storage units are secure and weather tight, often heated or cooled and are a good solution for golf car storage but are not as inexpensive as storing it on your own property. PORTABLE CARPORT Portable carports can be as inexpensive as a golf car cover if you take the time to shop. You may find one large enough to cover more than your golf car and it can be placed anywhere in your yard if your neighborhood permits it. Storage need not be expensive. But you need to make some preparations to protect the batteries, tires, and finish of your golf car before the winds of winter come howling and an inexpensive storage method can help you get this done.

Holiday shopping

New Vegas Golf VIP SPECIAL EDITION 19-chip Game: This exciting game levels the playing field for all golfers. Only 1 game is needed per foursome. The game begins by golfers agreeing on a value for the poker chips before teeing off on the first hole. Each player begins the round with no chips. Golfers want the positive chips and want to avoid the negative. The player that has the game hands out the chips as they are earned. The payoff is determined by the last golfer holding the chip at the end of 9 or 18 holes. EXAMPLE: If someone hits their ball into the sand, he would receive the sand chip. He can pass it when he sees another player go into the sand. He must do this before he walks off the green! If he waits until the next is too late! Same rule applies for positive chips. If someone is holding the Birdie Chip and a player birdies after...that player must ask for the chip before he walks off the green for that hole.

It all comes down to the 18th. Make sure you try to get rid of the negative chips and earn the positive. The game can take place over 18 holes or be broken into 9’s. The payoff is determined by the last golfer holding the chip at the end of 18. Online Demo is a must see! on website for additional chips and rules.

My name is Badshot Duffer. Just to make it perfectly clear, this is my given name. Seriously! The day I was born my golf pro father Harry Duffer had the unthinkable happen. With one stroke to go, poor dad sneezed, mishit his ball and lost the Lemonville fifty thousand dollar golf tournament top prize. In case you didn’t know the word mishit (miss-hit) means: to strike something badly. By now, your may have guessed, this did not sit well with dad. He was so dejected and frustrated; pops heedlessly named me, his one-and-only son, Badshot Duffer. Mom agreed, thinking it would do no good to go up against her very disappointed hubby. As the years passed, dad, mom, and I spent many hours golfing on a full-sized 18 hole course. Father’s lowest score achieved was 59 on three occasions; my score was 55 once and 59 twice. Dad recovered from his Lemonville defeat. Mom lived up to her last name by hitting nothing but bad shots with her clubs, umbrella, ball retriever, feet, hands, backpack, purse, teapot, towel, flashlight, hairbrush, and any nearby object she was able to reach. That was long ago. So, here I am now, a famous imaginary author of fictional golfing stories, making up funny articles just for your reading pleasure. They are about unreal golf places or a particular fictional golf car subject.

I am a self-help fanatic and golfing buff. Through no fault of my own, my tractor manufacturing employer of 15 years handed me a dreaded pink slip. From then on everything went downhill literally. My traditional style no-frills golf cart was seized by the "Downhill Repo Company."


Laugh Yourself Silly Humour Me I’m Old Sourpuss Therapy I Am Suzy A Talkaholic

Little did they know, after scouring the countryside for two months, I found and recovered my discarded golf cart in a waste disposal site? That's not all, with help from a friendly and compassionate tow-truck driver; we recovered 25 more almost identical abandoned golf carts. Forget the logistics. Please listen up you unfortunate golf cart owners, if you are getting over the crisis of having your golf cart repossessed, keep on reading this article. I have been there and done that. This alone gives us something in common. Don't you want to get back to owning a golf cart of your own that will not be repossessed, just as I have done? Here's the deal, especially for you and all citizens who by choice or otherwise choose to avail themselves of people friendly affordable golf carts in preference to hauling around a bulky and clumsy golf bag and other things. With the help of four unemployed former tractor co-workers, we have opened up our own golf cart overhaul and facelift company. It's called Golf Cart Redemption Barn. We can get you into a no-frills golf cart tailored to get you back up into your favorite golfing digs. It will make you the envy of that show-off fanatical rich golf cart owners. Who cares if they don't care, it's all a matter of material. Due to our very low, rock-bottom price, we do not deliver. You must pick up your very own no-frills golf cart yourself. Come and see these beauties in person. All of our golf carts have been revamped and turned into first-rate working condition. Due to a tight

advertising budget, the escalating cost of living, and the slow economic growth, our team only gets paid (peanuts) when we sell one of our redeemed (make-your-day) no-frills golf cart. We cannot afford a full-color picture of our golf carts but we think the following handdrawn image done by Sammy Jones our in-house artist, will give you a good idea of what our GOLF CART DEAL OF THE CENTURY is all about. Don't miss out folks, we only have 25 carts for sale. Now is the time to recover from your losses. If you want the buck to start in your pocket, we are selling our no-frills golf carts (Horse included) for the low price of $389.99 USD.

Wait, that's not all. For only $10.00 USD more, you can purchase a custom-fitted, Oakwood stained front driver's seat. Please call 1-000-000-000 our no frills golf cart toll-free number, for directions and information. DECEMBER 2016

Putting Christmas lights on your golf car is a great way to add fun to any party, especially if the party’s at a country club. You should use LED Christmas lights for this job, as they use less power and have plastic bulbs instead of glass bulbs. You will be plugging the Christmas lights directly into your Golf car if it has a 12v port, or you’ll be using a DC to AC converter if it has a normal auto charger port. Drive the golf car into a garage or other sheltered area where you can work on it. Dry off the golf car with a towel if it is wet. It is best to never do any wiring without the object being dry. Turn the golf car off and put the parking brake on. Wrap the Christmas lights around the struts of the golf cars roll cage and over the top. You should use one wrap around for every 6 inches of the pole. Wrap the Christmas light wiring around the roof in an X shape and also down the back handrails. Do not drape the lights across any seats or they may be sat on. Do not wrap any Christmas lights near the tires as they may get warped around the axle. Do not wrap any wires across the bottom of the golf car as they may get destroyed. Plug Christmas light strands into each other if you need additional length of Christmas light decoration. Plug the electrical plug into the 12v socket if your golf car has a normal AC outlet. If your golf cart has a DC outlet (the cigarette lighter outlet) then pull the lighter plug out and put in the DC to AC converter plug. Then plug the LED Christmas light plug into the 12v socket on the inverter plug. Turn on the golf car and watch the Christmas lights come on. If any do not come on then the strand may be bad or the plug may not be fully seated in the socket. Once you fix any problems use zip ties to attach the Christmas light strands to the support poles by wrapping the zip tie around the strand and cinching it tight. Once you’re done, use electrical tape over the plugs to waterproof the connection.
