Upgrading your golf cart seats is among the most popular ways to customize your carts. There are several ways in which you can do so, including by installing rear seats, seat covers, and more.

Golf Cart Rear Seat Kit

Most carts come equipped with two front seats for passengers. However, this is not always enough to meet the cart owner’s needs.

For example, if you’re using your cart for commercial and business reasons—such as to transport customers around a large business campus—more seats can make things easier and quicker.

Similarly, if you golf with a group of several friends frequently, it can be far more convenient to have a cart with more seats, so your entire group can travel across the golf course together. 

When it comes to customizing your golf cart seats, among the most common ways to do so is by installing a golf cart rear seat kit.

The rear seat kit essentially replaces the bagwell storage area on your cart. In its place, you get a pair of rear-facing seats that are very similar to the front seats. This means that instead of 2 passengers, your cart can now carry four passengers (or more, if you are carrying your children!).

Rear Seat Customizations

Once you have installed the rear seat kit, you can further personalize your rear seats. There are several options that are available for you to purchase, including:

Armrest Cushions

Armrests offer a comfortable space on which to rest your elbows. If you’ve had a long day of playing golf and are feeling tired, these can feel like a life-saver!


Some armrests also come equipped with cupholders. These are a great option if you’re playing a leisurely game of golf with refreshments or are traveling a long distance in your cart.

Grab Bars

This is also known as a rear safety bar and provides something for your passengers to hold onto while they are traveling on the back of your cart. This is an important safety feature if the cart driver accelerates or brakes abruptly, the rear passengers are at risk of falling off. Furthermore, it also serves as a mental comfort if you’re not too confident about riding in the back.

Golf Cart Seat Covers

Golf cart seats come with factory-issue seat covers. However, these covers are not always the most attractive to look at. Furthermore, if you’re installing rear seats, it’s likely you want them to match the front seats.

To help solve both of these issues, there are a variety of custom seat covers available on the market. With these covers, you can give your golf carts seats a new life. 

Custom Golf Cart Seats

Aside from adding additional seats and changing their exterior look, you can also fully customize your seats in order to make them more comfortable. Custom golf cart seats involve upgrading from the factory issue model.

You can install seats that have wider bolsters, taller seat-backs, and more. These seats can provide your cart with a more sporty look and are a great option if you’re planning to use your cart for significant travel or offroading purposes, as you can feel much more comfortable with custom upgrades. 

Final Thoughts

These are just some of the ways in which you can customize your golf cart seats. For example, depending on your needs and local laws, you can also install seat belts.
