So you’ve finally purchased your very own golf cart and you’re all ready to kick it around the links. Why not treat yourself to an added dose of fun and customize it with your very own modifications? We’ve already touched on the idea of modifying your golf cart in earlier entries, from installing heaters to converting your machine into a makeshift snowplow. Today, however, we’d like to focus on one simple modification that is so obviously, indisputably useful you’ll be shocked you didn’t think of it before. We’re talking, of course, about installing a horn in your golf cart.
A horn, you say? One of those handy little gadgets you’ve had on every other vehicle you’ve ever stepped foot in? Yes! Adding a horn to your golf cart is not only a fun weekend project, but also a wise precaution in case of impending collisions. It can also make your golf cart much more ready for street driving.
Plenty of golf courses have cart paths that intersect with roads. Why not be prepared to give that Chevy Suburban a heads up as you zip across the street in pursuit of the 19th hole? Some of us might even take the cart out for a spin around the neighborhood from time to time. In this case, installing a horn is especially well-advised. A golf cart might be an easy, inexpensive mode of transportation, but it’s not designed to protect you from harm in the event of an accident. A horn can circumvent potential accidents by alerting other drivers to your presence before anyone has to start making evasive maneuvers.
It’s worth noting though, that you should be careful to adhere to standard golf course etiquette once you’ve installed a horn in your cart. Your fellow golfers might not appreciate it if you’re fervently blowing your horn while they shoot for birdie out of a sand trap on the 17th. Just be the mindful, courteous golfer you’ve always been, and your horn will keep you safe without tarnishing your name at the clubhouse.
