Being a “cart girl” is having a moment on TikTok. We’re all over the app: young women making a living driving a bar cart around a golf course and serving drinks to the golfers.

On TikTok, it seems crazy, fun, easy and lucrative work. Sometimes yes, but there is more to it.

This is my first summer as a kar girl

When I was looking for a job, I spoke to eight golf courses that were fully staffed, and they said there was an increase in sign-ups because of TikTok. I had no idea it was such a big deal. I just thought I’d be good at it.

I finally got a job at a golf course. I usually work shifts that last four to six hours. When I go to work, I stock the cart with everything I need, such as soda, beer, shooters and ice cream. Then I drive the golf course all day and serve people drinks. I’ve found that the best way to approach customers is to say, “What can I get you to drink?” I do that instead of saying what I’ve heard other cart girls say, which is, “Are you all set?” People often just say, “Yeah, we’re good,” if you leave it at that.

Every time I test that, I sell more. It’s a pretty basic job. All you have to do is be bubbly and fun.

I always say I’m like an adult ice cream truck

Of course, customers can be creepy at times. I started a series on TikTok called ‘Ridiculous but True Stories of a Golf Cart Girl’. Sometimes it’s little things, like asking me for a beer called “Sip of Sunshine” and then telling me I’m the sip of sunshine. That’s pretty harmless.

Then I’ve had situations that are not so innocent, like when men make comments about my clothes or body parts, whistle at me or even try to touch me. Once upon a time there was a man who grabbed me – but he made a mistake because I am trained in MMA.

I dislocated his thumb and he said he would tell my boss. I told him to continue. I always try to keep the cart between myself and someone who pushes the boundaries.

Being a golf cart girl is the perfect job for me

I go to school full time all year round and don’t work during classes so I can concentrate. That’s why I have to earn all the money I need for my car and insurance during the summer. I basically save all my summer money for what I need for the school year.

As a golf cart girl, I make the most money I’ve ever made in the summer. At my course, we make a base rate of $16 per hour plus tips. The gratuities can fluctuate from day to day, but they are steadily very good. On TikTok, you see cart girls making thousands of dollars a day, and that’s not realistic for most of us. I see that’s only the case if you’re working on a course in Miami or Scottsdale.

I earn well and I have fun

I have been able to grow my TikTok following over 35,000 by sharing my cart girl adventures. I even recently got my first paid ad, which was really cool. I’ve always been entrepreneurial and TikTok is another way to do that.
