What Year Is My Club Car Golf Cart?


What Year Is My Club Car Featured Image

Right after my used Club Car golf cart was purchased and in the garage, I set about looking for accessories and tune-up kits for it. First, I had to figure out what the model and year of my golf cart was.

How to identify the year of your Club Car Golf Cart? The year is the first two numbers following the model letters. It turns out that Club Car was pretty consistent with their serial numbers over the years and if you can read the first six digit on the serial plate, you can use the chart below and know for sure.

Step 1: Club Car Golf Cart Serial Number Location

The serial number is located in one of three locations:

  • Inside or under the passenger side glove box – Precedent (2004 & up)
  • Under the passenger side glove box – DS (1981 & up)
  • Under the driver side seat on the frame – Pre-DS (1975-1980)

Step 2: Compare The First 2 Digits To The Golf Cart Model Chart

The two letters at the beginning of the serial number indicate the vehicle model. The following four digits indicate the model year and production week during which the vehicle was built. The last six digits after the hyphen in the serial number will be the unique consecutive number assigned to each vehicle built within a given model year.

AG is the Model Code, 96 is the year, and 25 is the production week

Using the chart below, the first 2 digits (AG) of the serial number tell me this is a DS Model Gas Golf cart (an A by itself would be a DS electric), and the next two digits tell me it was built in 1996. The 5th and 6th digits tell me it was the 25th week of production and the trailing numbers are the serial…or 503,802th produced.

  2. It featured a 36-volt electric drive train (six 6-volt batteries.)
  3. Two brake pedals: One to stop the car, The other is the hill brake, located to the extreme left side of the pedal cluster, used to park the car on a slope. The hill brake is a cable activated system.

  7. In 1992, the gas engine changed to a Kawasaki FE290 OHV Engine @ 9 Horse Power (Counter Clockwise Turn)
  8. In mid-1996, the engine changed to a Clockwise Turn
  9. In 1998, Kawasaki FE350 OHV Engine @ 11 Horse Power (Clockwise Turn) was introduced.

Materials In Construction

In 1993, Club Car replaced the plastic and fiberglass bodies with Armorflex which was a thicker and more durable material. It was less likely to bend and could break in a collision, but it would take a good deal more force to cause harm to it. In 2003 the material Surlyn by DuPont was introduced in the Precedent. The color is molded into the product thus eliminating painting and clearcoat.

Conclusion

The Club Car Golf Cart was brought to prominence in the field by eight of the original executives, recently resigned from E-Z-Go. They were late entering into the gas-powered golf cart field, but in the years that followed rose to one of the top-selling carts in the field. Club Car Golf Carts are now part of Ingersoll Rand Corporation.
