Heat rises so, while the top of a black roof WILL be hotter, it may not be noticeable sitting underneath it (unless the cart is closed in, when the heat will be trapped inside). Sitting directly on a hot, black seat, however...

Are Black Cars Hotter Than White Cars?

Essentially, Auto Trader took two nearly identical vehicles, one white and one black, and let them bake in the hot sun. When they measured the interior temperature after a few hours, they discovered the theory rang true. The black car's cabin measured a scorching 130 degrees Fahrenheit, while the white car's interior registered only 113 degrees.
They also decided to try answering a different question: Which one cools down faster once the air conditioning is cranked? Once again, they broke out the thermometer and discovered that the interior of the white car cooled to 84 degrees after 10 minutes, while the black car was still at 91 degrees.
Based on their test, it's safe to assume the color of your car can indeed have an impact on your comfort in the summer heat, with black cars heating up quicker -and cooling down slower - than white ones.

Hot is hot. Go for the looks. Not enough difference to make any difference.

My cart will be 8 years old in August and I don't regret the black roof at all. In fact, I don't even know it's black. As stated earlier, the biggest difference is in the seat color. Mine are black and there are days I have to lay a towel on the seat, especially if you're wearing shorts. Roof black is OK, seats black maybe pick a lighter color if you're concerned.

A car whether it gets hotter quicker or cools quicker is a sealed environment, that's apples and oranges when it comes to carts. If you're concerned that much, look in the morning Sun. I mentioned the air conditioned Atomic Kool Kartz, they have a color ad today advertising prices starting at $8300.
