Yamaha Golf Car sets the standard in performance, versatility, and comfort for golf, utility, and personal transportation vehicles to inspire a lifetime of exciting experiences on and off the course. We continuously draw from our global, 60-year legacy to create industry firsts that excite our customers—the first Electronic Fuel Injection for a golf car (resulting in the best gas mileage with the smallest carbon footprint); the first golf car with fully independent four-wheel suspension for the smoothest ride in the game; and the first QuieTech gas engine that is almost as quiet as an electric motor. As the Premier Partner and the “Official Golf Car” of both the NGCOA and the LPGA Women Who Play (formerly EWGA), the Title Sponsor of the NGCOA Yamaha Golf Outing, and the 2018 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice for Best Gas-Powered Golf Car, our vehicles remain the standard—proving time and time again why Yamaha is The Easy Choice™.
