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.
