If your idea of the golf car (the dealer-correct term) is the white, fragile-looking, cart, you're in for a surprise the next time you hit the fairways.

Customization is part of the game for many golfers, including some in Spokane, Washington. According to the Spokane Journal of Business, golfers are paying top dollar to spruce up their vehicles. Popular custom items include 10 inch tires to replace the standard eight; brushed aluminum or chrome wheels; canvas enclosures for protection from the elements or stray golf balls; and air-conditioning and heater units.

A new option, GPS, are joining the option list. With it, golfers can determine where the next green is located or sand trap.

What next? HID headlamps? Massage chairs? Self-parking golf cars? Xzibit would be pleased.

      Haha! This is very cute, and the reason no one looks to the golf set for style or fashion.

      I guess this sort of explains all those acres of used carts along I-81 that I see on my trips north. None of them have been pimped or have even the tiniest bling...too bad, so sad.

      Someone needs to introduce these people to a charity. Or, hell, if they just like throwing money away, mail some to me.

      "But why in God's name would you need GPS?"

      It's normally used as a range finder; certain golf courses have GPS-equipped carts so golfers can track their shot, distance to the hole, obstacles, perhaps even record the game to show to an instructor.

      As far as the aesthetic modes...... can you really see anyone playing St Andrews in a golf cart made to look like an Escalade on spinning dubs?

      I think the question here is

      P.S., PJ, put me on that mailing list too :-)

      What the hell? Ok I think I sort of understand the AC unit and heater unit. Being on a golf course during the day in the summer can be a pain. But why in God's name would you need GPS? Are people that dumb that they cant find the next hole? Well after reading a couple blogs on here about people driving off cliffs and into rivers, I would say people are dumb. But come on...this is getting ridiculous...

      so does that mean that the building you house your pimped out golf cart will be known as the (drumroll please)....CADDYSHACK? Ok, Ok, it's terrible but I couldn't resist a good golf pun. Or is it a putt?
