Yamaha surprised many people when has decided to build golf carts. Though nobody blame the company’s decision and the news was received pretty well by the media.

Yamaha G29A 4-Stroke
No one becomes a pro overnight. To excel at golf, you first have to dedicate yourself to mastering its finer points. The same applies to building world-class golf cars. It requires patience, perseverance and talent and it demands dedication and commitment to service support.
Yamaha golf cars are designed and engineered to go over the course. They benefit from state-of-the art technology that can be found across the entire Yamaha line-up: from our renowned ATVs to our unrivalled motorcycles.
Nothing matches the levels of reliability and endurance you’ll find in our golf cars. Or our dedicated service. But why take our word for it? Personal experience is the best teacher.
Every detail of the G29A is designed to get you around the course. Its ramp-style clutch combines low maintenance with the best hill-climbing in the industry. Precision steering and suspension ensure sure-footed operation. Even the contoured seat is the largest in the industry.
Its bumpers are rated for 8 km/h impacts. They’re the same height front and rear, to minimize damage. Its body panels are puncture resistant, cold-weather resistant and closely colour-matched to the extra-durable automotive-grade polyurethane paint that goes on them.
The G29A isn’t just a golf car that you’ll love to ride. You’ll get hooked on its looks too.
Long-lasting, low-maintenance brakes
The EnduraDrive Transaxle with Internal Disc Brake Technology uses a completely enclosed disc brake system. This eliminates brake drums and shoes, needs only one brake cable, and is projected - based on extensive tests - to have an incredibly long life with ultra-low maintenance.
Yamaha-built 357cc gasoline engine
Yamaha is the only golf car manufacturer that builds its own engines. This 357cc engine is quiet, refined and virtually vibration-free, with low emissions.
The industry’s largest, most comfortable seat features deep, supportive contours, which help to hold occupants in place when moving. Designed to accommodate users of all heights and sizes, it’s strengthened against sagging by plated steel inserts.
ClimaGuard™ Top with dual gutters
The sturdy ClimaGuard top offers all-round protection against sun and rain. Its 360 degree double rain channel has an integrated water drain system with an exclusive clog-proof design. It’s built for rattle-free stability and has integrated grab handles as well as universal mounting points for information holders and GPS systems.
Yamaha’s HybriCore Chassis combines an automotive, ladder-style 100% robotically welded frame with a polypropylene structural floor. Integrated into the floor, the battery box surrounds the batteries, eliminating a corrosion point. A self-contained pedal box gives the pedals top and bottom protection from dirt, debris and stray golf tees.
A stylish, car-inspired dash design includes four cup holders, a central storage area for personal items, six ball holders, six tee holders, and a big, easy-to-clean storage compartment on each side.
Tru-Trak II fully independent front suspension
Yamaha’s Tru-Trak II Suspension uses automotive-style, coil-over shock struts to minimise roll and delivers a smooth, comfortable ride.
Sentry Wraparound Protection System
The G29 comes with 360 degree protection against scrapes, scratches and bumps. Polypropylene side sills protect against side impacts in front of and behind the tyres and the energy-absorbing bumpers release air on impact to protect body and frame.
