With more than 100 golf courses in the valley, desert players ride from hole to hole with the nation's second-largest accumulation of golf carts.
Some ride in more style than others.
Welcome to Caddyshack Golf Cars in Palm Desert.
As the only officially-licensed golf cars of the Ford Motor Company, Caddyshack's impressive 26,000 square-foot showroom (including on-site service department) sports a host of models to either navigate you around or, in truth, turn heads in your neighborhood.
Want to write the biggest check ever presented for a golf cart? Yeah, you can do that here.
Last month, Caddyshack grabbed first place at the 51st annual Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade with its awesome, Custom P51 Mustang Raptor. The treasure can now be yours for a cool $150,000, and interested buyers should certainly know that the entirety of the proceeds from this baby go to benefit the Marines at Twentynine Palms.
Readers (and viewers) also need know that – while we stamp a hefty approval on visiting these digs in person – the folks at Caddyshack are debuting a fresh endeavor in which they can bring golf carts to prospective buyers with their new, mobile showroom.
