Golf Cart Dimensions (The Definitive Guide)
If you’re searching for golf cart dimensions, you’ve come to the right place.
This detailed write-up is designed to help you figure out whether or not your gas or electric golf cart will fit in that tight corner of your garage. It will also help you determine what size trailer you might need to haul a cart.
I have a separate article discussing whether or not a golf cart will fit in a pickup truck bed, so be sure to reference that if needed.
Alright, let’s get you that data you need.
Standard Golf Cart Dimensions
Regardless of the brand or model, standard golf cart dimensions are approximately 48 inches wide by 92 inches long by 66 inches tall. Put another way, the dimensions are 4 feet wide by 8 feet long by 5.5 feet tall.
The variations between a Club Car golf cart and a Yamaha golf cart are negligible, so you don’t need to worry too much about your specific brand (or size changes between electric and gas golf carts). The big difference between electric and gas cart is typically the weight of the golf cart, not the size.
However, there are some factors that can influence the dimensions of your golf car.
Modified Golf Cart Dimensions
Take special note if you:
- Have a lifted golf cart
- Have a non-OEM golf cart tire size
- Have a rear seat or a seating capacity of 6
- Have a brush guard
These factors will change the overall width, the overall length and the overall height. You can’t just trust the average golf cart dimensions if you have aftermarket improvements.
I can’t see the specific cart you’re inquiring about, so if your cart has modifications, you’ll need to take your own measurements and plan accordingly.
One might assume that a 3″ lifted golf cart will just change the overall height by 3″, but if you’ve added off-road golf cart tires, you’ve increased the ground clearance by more than just 3″.
When in doubt, measure twice. 5 minutes of measuring will be worth it in the long haul.
Nothing’s worse than driving through your garage door and ripping off the roof of your cart (and believe me, that happens).
Typical Golf Cart Dimensions Illustrated
The chart below breaks down each dimension in terms of feet and inches, but I also include metric measurements (centimeters) for those outside of the United States.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the Club Car Precedent dimensions may not be exactly the same as those of a Club Car DS, but they will be pretty close. Same thing with a Yamaha or EZGO.
My hope is that this resource will help you get a measurement range that you can plan around.
If you think you may be cutting it close with your golf cart trailer dimensions, go to the cart manufacturer’s website and find out the exact specs for their electric vehicle.
I built a simple table below highlighting the dimensions some of the more common brands/models.

What size trailer do you need for a golf cart?
Assuming you have a standard-sized cart (a 2 seater without modifications), you need a trailer that is at least 5 feet wide and 9 feet long to haul a golf cart.
If you want to carry your golf cart in an enclosed trailer, you need to make sure the roof is close to 7 feet high or install a roof lowering kit so you can bring down the height of the cart. Most golf carts at between 66″-80″ tall.
Don’t buy or rent a trailer until you’ve measured the cart you need to transport.
Adjusting the Height (Golf Cart Roof Lowering)
When you find that sweet aftermarket wheel set that pairs perfectly with a 6″ monster lift kit, you have to make a move.
…But how do you get bulked-up golf cart through your garage door?
Thanks to the internet, there are a variety of ways you can lower the roof of your golf cart. You can purchase 5″ roof lowering kits or you can modify the roof yourself.
See this YouTube tutorial for a DIY option.
At this stage of the game, I hope I’ve answered all the questions you could possibly have about golf cart dimensions.
Let’s wrap everything up with a quick review (just the the old schoolhouse days).
How tall are golf carts?
Most golf carts are between 65″ (5’5″ or 165cm) and 80″ (6’8″ or 203cm) tall. This is about 6 feet of height. If a golf cart has a lift kit installed or aftermarket tires, the overall height will increase.
How long are golf carts?
Most small, 2 seater golf carts are about 92″ (234cm) long. This is about 8 feet in length. If a golf cart has a rear seat installed, the length will increase to about 110″ (9’2″ or 280cm). If the golf cart is a 6 seater, the length will be approximately 144″ (12 feet or 366cm).
How wide are golf carts?
Most golf carts are about 48″ wide (4 feet or 122cm), though this measurement can vary slightly, especially if aftermarket tires are installed.
I want to know the height so I can figure out if Alex Murdoch was driving his golf cart when he shot Paul and Maggie. Because so far I no way believe that he did
