Today we saw this classy Rolls Royce custom golf cart pop up in our classified ads and we thought it’d be a perfect to feature as our “Used Golf Cart of the Week”. It’s a Royal Ride electric golf cart made by Elmco. Back in the day Royal Ride’s were the best custom carts around and were owned by golf loving movie and sports stars including Bob Hope,Michael Jordan, Flip Wilson,Burt Reynolds,Gerald Ford, Bob Barker, Chi Chi Rodriguez and Jackie Gleason.
Royal Ride put their custom Rolls Royce body on a Club Car chassis, and this particular custom cart uses an 48V electric golf cart as its base. Royal Ride's were built and finished with the same care and standards that were found in Roll Royce cars.
This particular custom cart is packed with features and upgrades including directional signals, quartz clock, rubber side rails, hi/lo beam headlights, dual beverage holders, dual English horns, tinted hinged aluminum windshield, power ribbed low profile tires and a deep libation ice chest, plus a lot more.
This cart has been treated to a pampered life and is stored in a custom enclosed trailer where its taken to car shows, golf tournaments and parades. She's obviously been seen and appreciated by a lot of people, with several car show first places to her name.
She's never been used on a golf course, as the owner is fearful if it being damaged by an errant golf ball, and has solely been used driving around the local community. With rear view mirrors, a full set of front and rear lights, license plate holder and fresh tires she's ready for her new owner to cruise down the local city streets.
A golf cart of this quality and pedigree doesn't come cheap, the owner is asking $24,900 for it, but with the amount of features and accessories fitted to the cart there's no classier way to get around.

We found a video of another Royal Ride that has been restored to its former glory, so you can get an idea of what these golf carts are about.
