These days, golf cart manufacturers produce a wide range of LSVs. But despite this variety of low speed vehicle models only a handful of LSV world records exist. To do these rare golf cart achievements justice, and encourage the birth of new titles, we highlight the current golf cart related Guinness World Records down below.
Longest Golf Cart
Mike’s Golf Carts started out as a father and son project back in 2005. Since then, the hobby has blossomed into a golf cart dealership capable of providing LSV related services, such as low speed vehicle repair. To attain this impressive repertoire, representatives of Mike’s Golf Carts utilized different tactics to boost awareness of the company.
Of the methods deployed, arguably the most successful business endeavor was earning the Guinness World Record for the longest golf cart. The aforementioned feat was achieved on May 30th, 2013 when representatives of Mike’s Golf Carts revealed their 9.62 meter long LSV to Guinness World Record judges.

Fastest Golf Cart
When developing street legal golf carts, LSV manufacturers are required to add a 25 mph speed cap. Nevertheless, this low speed vehicle regulation did not prevent Plum Quick Motors from breaking the Guinness World Record for fastest golf cart on October 31th, 2014.
On that fateful Halloween, a Plum Quick Motors representative met with Guinness World Record judges at the Darlington Dragway in Hartsville, South Carolina. Once everyone was ready, the driver of the modified golf cart squashed the gas pedal and pushed the powersports machine to a whopping 118.76 mph.
Largest Golf Cart Parade
Golf cart parades are a great way to raise money for charity. Taking this into consideration, members of The Villages Community decided to hold an LSV parade on September 4th, 2005. During the event, two noteworthy accomplishments were achieved.
First, $29,500 was raised for charity. Second, 3,321 citizens participated in the exhibit. Thanks to this huge turnout, The Village Community was able to establish the Guinness World Record for the largest golf cart parade.
Longest Journey in a Golf Cart
On January 14th, 2017, Morugadi Venkata Krishna Reddy, Morugadi Vanaja, and Morugadi Vamshi Krishna Reddy piled into a four seater golf cart and embarked on a 1034.6 mile route. By January 22nd, 2017 the inspiring group reached their destination, and vicariously earned the Guinness World Record for the longest journey in a golf cart.
Since then, those that participated in the world record event have utilized the garnered fame to establish a touring company in India.
Widest Golf Cart
Establishing a world record is a great way to raise brand awareness. Nevertheless, golf cart manufacturers have largely slept on this unique marketing tactic. To raise awareness of the profitable method, and increase the amount of golf cart themed world records, we generated a few attainable titles down below.
- Widest Golf Cart
- Tallest Low Speed Vehicle
- Most Passengers in an LSV
