Golf has long been known as the game of kings and gentlemen, and we have all heard the saying that more business takes place on the golf course than in the board room. Players such as Phil Mickelson and the legendary Tiger Woods have brought golf from a game to be enjoyed by wealthy retirees to one of the most popular games in today's sporting arena. There are now television channels entirely devoted to the sport and a plethora of equipment choices ranging from the traditional set of clubs and golf balls to trendy clothing and even a GPS golf watch. Whole neighborhoods are built around golf courses making them exclusive and expensive places to live.
Certainly a round of golf at an exclusive club can cost more than some people pay for a month's rent but that only seems to make the experience of playing even more desirable. Equipment is expensive also, with golf clubs, golf balls and proper attire being necessary elements of the game. Another popular accessory that has become more trendy in recent years is the golf cart. The golf cart gained wide acceptance with golfers in the 1950's and today is used not only on the golf course. More and more cities are legalizing golf carts as an alternative means of transportation in limited areas.
With the popularity of golf carts rising, so are the brands and models available, with most running by battery or electric power, or in some cases, both. There are now what is called "extreme golf carts" where people can stylize their golf carts much like their cars, adding lift and power. In some cases the sky is the limit with modifications such as custom stereo systems, diamond plated accessories and blinged-out wheels. Celebrities like Mark Wahlberg, Will Smith and Adam Sandler have been known to hit the links in some over the top rides. Below is a list of some of the most expensive and extreme golf carts on the today's market. These over the top golf carts are small but mighty.

1 Garia Edition Soleil de Minuit: $52,000
Definitely the Carrera of the Course, this is without a doubt the most expensive golf car (not cart!) ever produced. Made by Garia, one of the biggest names in luxury golf carts this cart cannot be surpassed in high end specifications, luxurious accessories, performance and therefore, price. Produced in the same factory as some of the most upscale autos such as Porsche, Aston Martin and Volvo, the Soleil de Minuit has a gear box from the world famous Ducati Motorcyle Company. The roof is carbon fiber, much like the BMW M3 and has a wishbone front end suspension inspired by Formula 1 cars. Inside you will find two-colored hand stitched seats and perhaps the biggest luxury of all, a built in refrigerator! This one has it all for the golfer who requires it and can afford it.
