How to identify the year of your Club Car Golf Cart

What Year is My Club Car ® Golf Cart?

Since 1981 Club Car Golf Carts have positioned their serial numbers just under the glove box on the passengers side of the vehicle. The first two numbers (not letters) indicate the last two digits of the year of manufacture.

On Club Car Golf Carts prior to 1981, you can find the serial number by raising the seat and locating the aluminum, I-beam frame section closest to the batteries on the driver's side of the car. If the serial number plate has been removed, you can confirm it is a 1975-1980 model if it has two brake pedals and one accelerator pedal.

Differences Between 1982-2000.5 and 2000.5-Present Club Car DS Models
  1. 1982-2000.5 Club Cars have two distinct seat backs while 2000.5-present models have a connected (one piece) seat back
  2. 1982-2000.5 Club Cars have silver aluminum top supports while 2000.5-present models have black top supports
