Come Meet Alex and Joe

Alex has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. He started his first business at 13 years old. As a kid, Alex always wanted a golf cart and even asked his parents for one every Christmas. But it wasn’t until he got older and saved up his money to buy one. As he began to tinker with his new toy and make upgrades, he discovered a passion for building golf carts and opened a business out of his home in 2015.

Alex knew his business was quickly outgrowing his home, so in 2017 him and his partner Joe, a retired military vet, moved to their current location on North Palafox. Alex and Joe do all repairs and upgrades themselves, and many customers stick around to talk with Joe who loves a good conversation with friendly people.

Because of their proximity to some of our country’s top military bases, with the “Cradle of Naval Aviation” at NAS Pensacola just a few miles away, and Joe’s background in military service, these two fine men gladly welcome all military personnel, active duty, and retired to come pay them a visit.

Supporting the Community

Alex and Joe love serving their community of Pensacola, but their services reach far and wide. From Orange Beach all along the Emerald Coast to Destin, they proudly serve the businesses, residents, and visitors to the area.

Emerald Coast Golf Carts also partners with Scenic Hills Country Club to donate a golf cart to an organization that supports children with special needs.

In October of 2018, their donation supported the 5th Annual Magnolia’s for FAST (Foundation for Angelman Therapeutics) Golf Scramble held at Scenic Hills Country Club.

Turning Lemons Into Lemonade

A point of pride for the Emerald Coast is the National Seashore. Visitors to Pensacola Beach are able to walk through one of the most historic places in Northwest Florida—Fort Pickens. For years, the local government and the National Park Service has rallied to get a one-of-a-kind ferry service to bring visitors and residents across Pensacola Bay to Fort Pickens.

The company that came to Pensacola Beach to begin the ferry service and transport also supplied shuttles to transport visitors from the ferry into the park. Because Fort Pickens is a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore and the National Park Service, all of the administration and activities at the park are run through government contracts.

This meant that in order to service their tram vehicles, they needed a technician certified to do repairs and maintenance on government-owned and operated property.

Alex and Joe answered the call and became certified to conduct repairs on the trams and commercial vehicles at Fort Pickens. While the ferry service between Pensacola and Fort Pickens was short-lived, and residents hope it may return again someday, Emerald Coast Golf Carts is now the only dealer and technician in the area to service government owned trams, golf carts, and recreational vehicles.

We now extend our services to national parks and government agencies in need of maintenance and repairs of their commercial specialty vehicles and golf carts.
