How To Determine – What Year and Model of My Club Car Golf Cart

Here is a quick step by step guide or \”How To\” to help you find the information you need to determine the model and year of your Club Car golf cart. See below.

Why Do I Need To Know The Age of My Golf Cart

Knowing the year, make and model of your golf cart is important when you need to order parts or accessories.  Having this information is also very important when you are in the market to purchase a new club car golf cart battery charger because certain models required certain chargers. In order to ensure you purchase the correct charger for your golf cart we will need to know the exact model year for your cart. This is because all club car golf carts manufactured before 1995 did not have an onboard computer even though the connector is the same round three pin connector, it will require a different charger. All club car golf carts manufactured after 1995 have an OBC or Onboard computer and use that type of charger. P

Locating the Serial Number

People often ask us how to determine the year of their Club Cart. First you should look for the serial number. In most newer carts (1990\’s and up) you will find the serial number for your golf cart on a bar coded sticker either above the accelerator and brake pedal area or below the passenger side cup holders. The letter or letters at the beginning of the serial number will tell you the model you own. See list below for the basics. It should be one or two letters. The following four digits will tell you the Club Car golf cart model year and week that your golf cart was built. The six digits that follow is basically the serial number assigned to each club car golf cart built within that model year.
