When it comes to golfing, you probably already have the best gear. Whether it’s a perfect set of clubs or having the right balls, most golfers have cultivated their equipment from years of practice and experience. If you’re really serious about golfing, however, then you perhaps even own a golf cart to bomb around the courses. In many retirement communities, in fact, golf carts are the preferred method of transportation around the cul-de-sacs and going to the corner market.
If you do happen to own a golf cart, did you know that you can add more comfort and style to your ride with a custom golf cart seat cover? Much like getting a cover for your car, golf cart seat covers are meant to provide extra support to your ride while also helping protect your seats from spills and other messes.
Today I’ll show you some of the best seat covers for golf carts so you can ride in style while hitting the links. Tee up and let’s get started!
First on our list is the Diamond Air Mesh Bench Seat Cover from Classic Accessories. When it comes to golfing equipment, I find that Classic Accessories has a fantastic selection of high-quality items. For that reason, most of the golf cart seat covers I’ll be featuring are by Classic Accessories.
The Diamond Air Mesh Seat Cover is especially worthwhile because it is designed to have a better airflow, so your rear doesn’t get too hot while riding. The diamond pattern also provides a little more support and comfort while looking sleek and professional. These covers should fit most golf cart seats snugly, meaning that they should work for you, regardless of the kind of cart you have.
Finally, what I like about this cover, in particular, is that it comes in three distinct colors; khaki, black, and blue. Personally, I prefer the black option, but I do love the look of the blue seats. This cover is also machine washable and comes with a one-year limited warranty
Our next product from Classic Accessories is the Terry Cloth Bench Seat Cover. This model is very similar to the Diamond Mesh design, but instead of getting a futuristic diamond pattern on a synthetic fabric, you get the soft comfort of a terry cloth. If you want something that feels amazing while you ride around the course, this seat cover is for you.
Although I usually do like synthetic fabrics because they are easier to clean, I have to say that I love the feeling of the terry cloth seat cover. In fact, I could probably lay down on it and go to sleep if the seats were flatter and longer, but I digress. The cloth material is excellent for protecting your seats while adding extra comfort. The cover is easy to install as well, and you can put it on in minutes.
Like the Diamond Mesh model, this golf cart seat cover is machine washable and comes in three colors. The first is khaki, then Navy, and finally all black. Each color is brilliant and will last for a long time without fading. As long as you wash it semi-regularly, the cover should retain its soft feel and bright coloring.
As I mentioned before, I like having synthetic fabrics on my seats because I find that they last longer and are much easier to maintain. To that end, our next model is the Neoprene Paneled Bench Seat Cover from Classic Accessories. If you want a high-tech cover that is built to withstand the elements, then this is the model for you.
What I like about the fabric for this model is that it is both comfortable and water-resistant. The central part of the seat cover is made of gardelle fabric, which will not shrink or stretch, no matter how many times you wash it. That does mean it takes a little more time to secure the covering to the seat (since it won’t hug the edges like the other models), but you get a lot more mileage out of it. Part of the reason these last longer, too, is the fact that it comes with neoprene patches on the back and bottom of the cover. These patches are designed to repel dirt and water so you can go longer without cleaning it.
Finally, this seat cover is machine washable and comes with a one-year limited warranty.
When it comes to golf cart seats, you may have a single piece for the headrest, or it may come with two separate parts. Each model we’ve seen so far has been for a single piece unit, but the Cart Logic CL 12158 CC-DS Cozi Cover is custom designed for carts that have two individual back rests. That being said, if your cart comes with one big piece, this is not the cover for you.
What I like about this cover is that it’s made of all weather fleece. Fleece is a fantastic material because it wicks away moisture (such as rain or sweat) while still maintaining a high level of comfort. This particular fleece comes in black, which only makes it even better in my opinion since you don’t have to clean it as much.
Another significant feature of this seat cover is the inclusion of a security pocket. If you want to store your phone or other valuables safely, you can hide them in the pocket. Since most thieves look in your golf bag for items, hiding them in the seat can be hugely beneficial.
Finally, we have the basic golf cart seat cover from Prettiful Covers. All of the other models we’ve looked at so far are designed to be semi-permanently installed on your cart. What that means, however, is that you have to own a cart for these covers to be worthwhile. This model, however, is more or less a large towel that you place on the seat before you ride. This means that you can use it with a rental or with your own cart.
What I like about this seat cover is not only is it versatile, but it’s stylish as well. You can choose from almost ten different designs so you can match your personality on the course. The material is thick and durable and provides extra comfort and protection. This cover is also machine washable and secures to the seat with a single strap, so you don’t have to worry about it flying away or falling off.
Overall, when picking out the best golf cart seat cover, you want something that is both practical and comfortable. I would highly recommend any of the models by Classic Accessories, although I do wish that they would make a fleece model. If you want something more universal, however, the seat cover from Diamond Air Mesh is a great pick.
Even though a seat cover is a pretty straightforward piece of covering, that doesn’t mean you should skimp on the details. Considering that you’ll be sitting on your cover day in and day out means that you should take the time to find the right model for you. Not only do you have to make sure that it fits your cart, but you have to ensure that it meets your needs. Here are the top three things to look for in a golf cart seat cover.
Choosing the right material depends on how exactly you want your cover to feel, as well as how well you want it to hold up against the elements. Since a golf cart is more or less exposed to the weather, you need a seat cover that can withstand almost any condition. Conventional seat cover materials are synthetic fabrics, terry cloths, and fleece.
Each material has benefits and downsides regarding softness, durability, and functionality. Overall, pick a cover that provides you with exceptional comfort and can be cleaned relatively easily. For my money, I like synthetic fabrics, but fleece is another great option.
For the most part, golf cart seat covers are designed to blend in with your current seat color. To that end, many covers are tan or khaki colored, as that is what most golf cart seats are too. However, if you want to add a little zest to your cart, you can choose a cover that has a bit more color to it. Personally, I like to get a black seat cover because those are much better at hiding stains and dirt, meaning that I don’t have to clean it as often, and it won’t look faded or dirty very quickly.
Speaking of dirt, golf cart seat covers can get incredibly messy, depending on where you play and how rough the weather usually is. That being said, you want to get a cover that can be cleaned easily, so you aren’t stuck with a dirty or stained looking seat. Many seat covers are machine washable, but not all, so make sure to get one that you can throw in the wash if it gets too dirty. Otherwise, you’ll eventually have to spend a couple of hours scrubbing and deep cleaning your seat covers, and no one wants to go through that.
