A golf cart rear seat is great to have to carry kids or company around town, hold grocery bags, or to haul gardening supplies.
For those living in a golf cart it's an especially useful accessory. It's great for taking friends out to dinner or for picking up the grandkids.
You can purchase your golf cart as a 4 seat golf cart with the rear seat or you can add it later.
Most rear seats are rear facing and are added later to a two seat golf cart.
These rear seat kits can be purchased on line at places like Amazon. The kits are specific to your golf cart make, model and year.
You will need to know which model golf cart you own. Next decide on a seat color - the three most common options are beige, white or black. Color combinations are also available for a more custom look.
Be sure to pick a seat cover color that matches the color of the front seats.
One of the most versatile golf cart rear seat options is the flip seat, which provides a dual purpose of carrying extra passengers or hauling extra stuff.
It's as simple as it sounds, simply flip down the rear seat and voila .... you can use your golf cart for shopping, hauling, and gardening.

When a rear seat is added the extra weight can cause your rear seat to sag and your tires to rub. To prevent sagging add heavy duty rear leaf springs or dual action leaf springs.
The dual action leaf springs provide a smoother ride while the standard heavy duty leaf springs provide a little stiffer ride. This golf cart part is specific to your golf cart make, model and year.
Many people also add a safety grab bar. It gives your passengers something to hang onto when they hit a bumpy stretch of golf cart paths. And we have them in Peachtree City - tree roots get under the paths and there is some serious bouncing for your back seat riders.

We added a golf cart flip seat to our Club Car - this way we can use it to take more people on the cart or use it around the yard to haul mulch, move plants or carry away debris.
Golf cart flip seats are available for Club, EZ GO and Yamaha golf carts.
You can contact your local golf cart dealer to order and install one for you. Or you can do it yourself by ordering a flip seat on line.
You will need to know the make, model and year of your golf cart. Your golf cart will probably require heavy duty springs if you add the extra rear seat yourself.

When you add a rear seat you may want to switch out your golf cart top to an extended one that protects your rear seat passengers. This short top leaves your passengers in the back unprotected from the hot sun or a cold rain.

Adding a rear seat can be useful in many different ways. The cart can be used on and off the golf course, can accommodate more passengers, can be useful for hauling and often it's easier to sell than a 2 passenger cart.
