The golf bag rack is the most important golf cart accessory for a golfer with an electric golf cart. With several to choose from, determining which rack is best for your golf cart depends on a couple of things.
A golf cart bag rack keeps your bag secure with straps that can be adjusted and tightened making your clubs easily accessible.
The first consideration is whether your golf cart is a two seater or a 4 seater golf cart.
The rack on a two passenger golf cart is a more permanent golf cart accessory.
It cannot be easily removed and replaced as you can see from this picture above.
For those with a 4 seat golf cart or with a rear seat there are more options.
1. Facing away from or towards the rear seat
One is to have a rack that faces away from the back seat passengers and the other is a rack where the golf cart bags faces towards the passenger seat. All of the racks hold two bags.

2. Requires a Safety Grab Bar
The golf cart safety grab bar is sold separately from the golf bag rack.
My rack can be removed from the safety bar when not in use as it can be easily lifted off the safety grab bar.
However it's not a problem just to keep it on the golf cart even when you have rear seat passengers. No installation required - just place it over the safety grab bar.The golf bag rack that I use can be found at Amazon here:
3. Color of the finish
My rack is made of steel and has a black finish. You can also get ones with an aluminum finish.
The straps are adjustable and hold two sets of clubs and the buckles allow for a secure fit without ever getting loose.
This golf cart accessory is universal meaning it doesn't matter if it is an EZ Go, Club or Yamaha golf cart. What matters is if your cart is a two seater, four seater or if the back seat is a flip down seat.
My golf bag rack gets lots of use, so the straps are starting to fray - the straps can easily be replaced when the time comes.
Another option for a golf bag attachment on a 4 seat golf cart, is to place them on the sides of a golf cart flip seat making it possible to still have 4 passengers on the cart. This design doesn't allow for a safety grab bar in the middle.
When using a golf cart bag rack, it's important to ensure that the bag is securely fastened to prevent it from shifting or falling out.
The straps on my golf bag holder get lots of use and after years of constant tightening and loosening and exposure to rain, sun and wind, they have become frayed and need to be replaced.
The good news is that you don't need to buy a whole new rack - just get new straps or buckles. Whether it's the straps or buckles/clamps you can replace them at Amazon for a small investment ...Golf Bag Rack Strap
