Golf Carts...the four-wheeled wonder buggies synonymous with leisurely strolls across the greens, have unexpectedly stolen the spotlight in the pop culture world. 

They've made appearances in Hollywood movies, TV shows, music videos, and even celebrity garages, proving that these unassuming vehicles are more versatile and entertaining than we could have ever imagined. 

Let's take a ride through the cinematic, television, and celebrity realms where golf carts have carved a niche for themselves.

Movies that Teed Off with Golf Carts

1. "Caddyshack" (1980)

Enter the chaotic world of Bushwood Country Club, where golf carts aren't just a means of getting around but a canvas for wild comedic moments. In this classic comedy, the zany assistant groundskeeper, Carl Spackler (played by the hilarious Bill Murray), takes his war against a mischievous gopher to a new level when he modifies a golf cart into a gopher-hunting machine.

2. "Happy Gilmore" (1996)

Movies featuring golf carts

In this sports comedy, Adam Sandler's titular character takes his unconventional golf game to new heights. While golf carts themselves aren't the main focus, Happy Gilmore's memorable confrontation with a belligerent orderly on a golf course involves commandeering a golf cart as part of a spirited chase scene. The scene showcases the collision of Happy's fiery passion with the tranquil world of golf carts.

3. "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (1986)

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Golf Cart Scene

Ferris Bueller's legendary day of truancy includes an unexpected cameo by a vintage 3-wheeled golf cart. As Ferris, his girlfriend Sloane, and his best friend Cameron explore the sights of Chicago, they end up at a fancy restaurant where Cameron's dad keeps his prized 1961 Ferrari. A frantic attempt to reverse the car's odometer leads to a humorous and anxiety-inducing escapade, culminating in a car crash that lands the Ferrari in a pool.

4. "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013)

Even the high-stakes world of Wall Street finds room for golf cart antics. In a memorable scene from this film, Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) navigates a popular Club Car DS golf cart while under the influence of powerful drugs. As the effects kick in, Belfort's coordination becomes comically impaired, turning his short journey into a series of hilarious mishaps that are both entertaining and cringe-inducing.

2. "Let it Go" by DJ Khaled Feat. Justin Bieber, 21 Savage

DJ Khaled released this Happy Gilmore-inspired music video on a golf course using a blend of classic Yamaha Drive Golf Carts as well as some completely custom-fabricated Lamborghini inspired golf carts. The track and the music video features a couple of his industry pals: rapper 21 Savage, and an up-and-comer you may not have heard of, Justin Bieber.  

 

Golf Carts from the Greens to the Silver Screen

Golf carts have transformed from unassuming vehicles into symbols of adventure, fun, and unexpected experiences. From the comedic chaos of "Caddyshack" to the wild antics of "The Wolf of Wall Street."
