Default New Cart enclosure?

I'm looking to get a new black enclosure for a cart I'm building.

I've used Red Dot and TampaG, pro-tour track style
recently and they are alright enclosures but I was hoping for something a little better quality and possibly allow easier entry/exit.

Does anyone have experience with Doorworks Track style enclosure?

Or can you recommend a local shop that builds quality custom enclosures that are competitively priced?

Thanks,

I recently had a custom soft enclosure made by Quality Golf Cart Enclosures. They have many choices of fabric and colors and designs and measure and cut the fabric on site. I didn't want a hard enclosure since I wouldn't use it enough and it's too confining for my taste so I don't know if they even do hard enclosures. Talk to Matt, he's the owner if interested. 352-963-3376

More than one said they laughed at those pulled off to the side, trying to unbutton and unzip their sunbrella's after it had already started storming. One guy said that most of them were already as wet as they could get, so why stop and mess with the snaps and zippers anyway? lol

Well that's not exactly how it works. Most of us don't wait for it to rain before buttoning up, we kinda can tell if a storm is coming. In the last year I had to button up for wet weather, maybe 4 times which is why it's not an issue. Having said that, enclosures are personal choices and until you are in one you really won't know what works. I have two friends that had hard enclosures, both did not put them on their new carts when the traded up. Another friend has two cars, one with and one without. The one with only goes out when it's raining, the one without 90% of the time. There is no right or wrong, only what you want. If you make a decision based on what others tell you, and it doesn't work out, I suspect they won't jump in to help you out.

I have a Curtis Cab for the parents cart. Good for them, but I want the open air. Easy to roll up. I keep the snaps lubricated. So easy to remove/hook.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a soft cart enclosure that is easy to deploy in the rain?

Most carts come with the Sunbrella enclosure, my Yamaha purchased from TV Golf Car Store at LSL in 2011 has Sunbrella. It's easy to use and roll down and up and zippers work well. This link shows various Sunbrellas, but you can buy from most dealers for about $800 installed.

Sunbrella Golf Cart Enclosures | National Golf Cart Covers

I know one I don't like, my neighbor bought his cart from Villages Discount Golf Cars on 466. Nothing wrong with the refurbished cart, they use many of their own products and the canvas cover is one of them. I don't like the velcro connections around the windshield, they seem to not stay in place. Also the zippers are confusing, many have double zippers, one on the inside and one on the outside. It's handy, because on my Sunbrella, if you're inside you can't zip it up all the way, with the double zipper you could, but single zipper is simpler.

Here's my 2011 Yamaha that I bought new, this is a recent photo, it will be 9 years old in July. If you clean and hose the floor and mats after every round of golf and maybe use some wipe on wax, it will stay looking new for a long time.

Also the Sleekline is much more comfortable when it’s cold
