Club Car is the world leader in the production of electric vehicles, including golf carts. Knowing in what year your Club Car golf cart was built makes it easier to perform required maintenance, order replacement parts, and can increase enjoyment of the vehicle. Fortunately, Club Car makes finding out this information easy.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Find the serial number of your cart by looking beneath the glove box on the passenger's side dashboard. Club Car has placed its serial number there since 1981.

  2. 2

    Look in an alternate location if Step 1 fails. Prior to 1981, Club Car placed the serial number by the batteries underneath the driver's seat.

  3. 3

    Read the 12 characters within the serial number. The first six reveal the model type, along with the year and week of production. The final six numbers, usually set apart by a dash, represent your cart's individual identification code.

  4. 4

    Identify the cart model by reading the first two letters. The first letter signifies the model, and the second letter the propulsion system. "A" or "Q" stands for an electric cart, and a "G" signifies gas. For example, a serial number beginning with "PQ" means the cart is a Precedent Electric.

  5. 5

    Find the year of your cart by locating the first two numbers. A two-digit combination of "06" means the cart was built in 2006, for example, while a "95" would signify 1995.

  6. 6

    Discover the week of production through the fifth and sixth numbers. A "12" would mean your cart was built in the twelfth week of that year.

Tips and warnings

  • The serial number can be missing on many vintage golf carts. If this is the case, contact Club Car through its website with the serial number on the gas engine, electric motor, or transaxle, and the company will provide you with the date of your cart.
  • Avoid confusion by focusing only on the first two digits of the serial number. Those numbers signify the year of production. The other characters simply provide more information for those who want it.
