Lan Cam Golf Carts, located at 403 South Calumet Street in Chesterton, Indiana is something of a unique business. While there are lots of places that sell and service golf carts, how many of them sell carts that have been custom painted and decaled to look like your old Firebird? Or which have had the caddy shelf replaced with a gun rack? These models, and other strange and interesting pieces can all be found either on the showroom floor of Lan Cam Golf Carts, or in the backroom awaiting your perusal.
The business’s owner began repairing and servicing golf carts on local, Northwest Indiana golf courses as a summer job while he was in college. Though he did earn his degree, fixing and servicing golf carts was actually profitable and fun enough that he decided it would be a better area to open a business in. So with the help of a fairly small crew, Lan Cam Golf Carts brings a lot of experience to the table, and they work to help you create the exact, customized golf cart to fit your personal needs whether it’s a cruiser on the course or something showy to give your kids as a present.
Of course, for residents of Chesterton, Indiana there are bonuses to having your own customized golf cart. Recently, the law was passed that within the Chesterton city limits golf carts are considered to be street legal. This means that you can have a vehicle that runs on electricity (and off of solar power if you customize the proper kit), which is eco-friendly and cheap that you can use for all your around town errands. Anyone who has a driver’s license in the city can take out the golf cart, which makes getting around much easier for kids who may not have a car, but who can afford the much lower price of a snazzy golf cart. This is especially true if you really customize it, including rain shields, radio, and a heater for the winter time if you intend on driving it then.
According to the owner there are lots of requests he’s had for golf carts that were never meant for golf. Electric motors are great for hunting because they’re quiet and they give you a mobile base to hunt from in addition to being powerful enough to actually carry what you shoot. There have been artistic pieces used for buggies, and functional workhorses that are used for groundskeeping and getting around large estates or big apartment complexes for maintenance. The purpose that a good golf cart can fulfill is almost endless, and when customized by the pros at Lan Cam, you certainly get the value for your money.
