A powered mechanism for a universal golf cart includes a transmission
device, and a fixing device. The transmission device includes a housing
assembly for mounting a motor, a battery unit, a control circuit board
and a drive shaft. The drive shaft is connected with a wheel of the golf
cart. The fixing device has a first portion secured to a foot tube of the
golf cart and a second portion mounted on the drive shaft. Thus, the
powered mechanism converts a traditional powerless golf cart into a
motorized golf cart easily and rapidly.
