Golfwagen or Golfcart


Explanation:
"golf cars" means the little electric vehicles golfers use to transport themselves and their clubs, not the Volkswagen product - (less normally used in English: 8,000 AltaVista hits) = golf carts (more normally used in English: 27,000 AltaVista hits) = Golfwagen (often used in German: 148 AV hits) = Golfcart (also used in German: 45 AV hits)
