36 volt and 48 volt EZGO, Yamaha and Club Car Golf Cart Repair – Matty
Matt is really cool guy from Ramona who owns Ramona golf carts. I met Matt when he needed a deal on batteries for some carts he was selling.. Turns out he really knows how to repair electric golf carts and can even do modifications like adding a utility bed or additional passenger bench, transforming a two seat cart to a four seat cart.
Matt has carts for sale but will visit your location to do repair.
Before you order a replacement part, call Matt. Chances are he has the part you need replaced on your golf cart from his “bone yard” and will offer it for less than what you would pay retail.
