In 2005 Pete Scholz wanted to make his golf cart distinct from other carts. He put on a lift kit, big tires, a radio and custom flames. Once people saw his cart, they started asking him to customize theirs as well. He discovered that the custom golf carts he enjoyed creating so much were becoming increasingly popular. Starting from his home in Medford, NJ later in 2006, Pete soon became known as, and ultimately named his business, The Golf Cart Guy.
