Golf Cart Windshield

A golf cart windshield serves to keep you dry and warm on a cold rainy day or cool and comfortable on a hot summer afternoon. Acrylic windshields are breakable while polycarbonate windshields are less likely to break.

 It may be that you need to replace an existing windshield or are looking to add one to your golf cart.  This golf cart accessory is specific to your golf cart make, model and year.

1. Clear Acrylic

Acrylic is the most common material used for windshields. It is the least expensive and the hardest, meaning it is less apt to scratch but also more apt to break especially if hit by a golf ball.

2. Tinted Acrylic

A tinted golf cart windshield is a windshield for a golf cart that has a tinted or shaded appearance. The tinting is typically achieved by adding a special film or coating to the windshield glass. I have tinted and it does help to reduce glare. I think it looks a little classier. A tinted version typically costs just a little more than the clear one.

3. Impact Resistant Windshield

The material most often used is a modified acrylic. Rubber is added to the acrylic windshield making it more shatter and crack resistant. However, since it is softer than acrylic it scratches more easily.

4. Fold Down or Split Windshield

A fold down option is great on hot or warm days and helps to keep you and your riders cool and comfortable.

5. One Single Piece or Solid Windshield

A single or solid windshield is required for DOT approved street legal golf carts made of AS-1 or AS-5 composition. Windshield wipers are required as well.

6. Winged 

The side wings deflect wind from the passengers.

7. Short or half acrylic windshield for carts without tops

8. Portable, roll up one that can be easily attached or removed with elastic cords

9.  Weather Seal Windshields that prevent wind, rain or dust from entering the cart

Club Car Windshield

At sometime you may need to replace your golf cart windshield due to lots of scratches, broken hinge, or a cracked windshield. You will need to know the year of your Club Car before you purchase your Club Car windshield.

There is a standard model for the years 1982-2000.5 (in 2000 Club Car made some changes mid-year so they have a split year).

The Club Car windshield is available as a hinged, fold down windshield. I really like the hinged windshield. I can't imagine why anyone would want a one piece. I keep the windshield down on warm days for the cool breeze and up on cold, windy or rainy days.

You can purchase them as clear or tinted. I have had both and do like the reduced glare with the tinted windshield. It's a very subtle tint that doesn't make everything look darker. My newly refurbished Club Car golf cart has a tinted windshield. I just like how it looks and I'm glad that I chose it this time even though it costs more than the clear golf cart windshield.

The three options are for these Club Car Golf Carts:

1. DS Club Cars 2000.5 and up

2. DS Club Cars 1982 to 2000.5

3. Club Car Precedent

These windshields can be purchased on line with most offering free shipping. Go to Amazon to get your Club Car Windshield here:

Golf Cart Windshield Cleaner

How do you prevent your golf cart windshield from becoming dull or hazy? Golf cart windshields are made of acrylic or polycarbonate material.

I'll just state the obvious - they are not made out of glass. Which means you can't clean them like you would glass windows or glass windshields.

golf cart windshield cleaning do's and don'ts

The number one piece of advice for cleaning your golf car windshield is do not use ammonia based products - like Windex.  Cleaning solutions with ammonia (like Windex) will eventually cause the plastic to become dull or hazy.

You can use warm water and mild soap detergent with a soft cloth. Wipe the windshield down gently. If there is a lot of dirt on the plastic, applying pressure can cause the plastic to scratch.

This goes for drying the windshield as well - if there is any piece of sand or dirt left, applying pressure on the plastic can again scratch it. Just dab it dry.

Do not use other glass cleaning spray solutions and if you're out in the woods and getting pestered by bugs, be sure you don't get any Off insect spray on the windshield - it will ruin it.

See how hazy and foggy this golf cart windshield is? It cannot be restored to it's original clarity - it needs to be replaced or you can try a scratch remover.

Amazon carries a really good scratch remover here:

Golf Cart Windshield Cleaner and Polisher 

However, if you find that there are scratches on your windshield, it is possible to remove some of the lighter scratches with a windshield polish and cleaner.  This polish works by filling in tiny scratches with an optical-grade silicone that actually improves clarity and reduces glare and fog.

A golf cart windshield polish increases clarity, reduces glare and protects your windshield from sand, dirt, and other debris.

Most golf cart shops or on-line businesses sell a windshield cleaner, protectant and polisher. The best time to start using this product is when your windshield is new : ). The polish also protects your plexiglass by repelling water, dirt, sand and salt.  My favorite is ...

Golf Cart Windshield Parts

I've been able to delay buying a new Club Car windshield, by purchasing new golf cart windshield parts that hold the windshield in the upright position.

After years of use and exposure to the sun and rain, the clips can become brittle and lose their tightness which leads to lots of rattling.  These golf cart parts are inexpensive and easy to replace.

Golf cart windshield clips that hold your windshield in the up position need to be replaced periodically. You will find when your split windshield starts banging around and the clips become loose because of wear and tear, it is time to replace them.

These rubber snap-on clips cost just a few dollars. Compare that to a new golf cart windshield which is usually over $100, and you've saved a lot of money.

To buy the correct windshield clips for your golf cart you will need to know the size of the frame or the strut that holds the windshield. The most common sizes are 3/4" or 1".

It is not specific to a golf cart make or model. They come as a set of 2.  You can snap these clips into place by using a rubber hammer - no gluing or screwing in a part is necessary.

Golf Cart Windshield Clips

If your golf cart windshield develops a crack or you just want to upgrade to a tinted or better conforming windshield it's an easy to order and replace golf cart part.
