Thanks for the good input.

Same here in Colorado, in the State Parks. They allow the caretakers to drive around in them but are prohibited otherwise.

Two years ago at winter camp in Phoenix the DW & I went to Sun City to buy a Yorkie. While gawking on the way (Sun City is huge) we saw a very big golf cart shop so we stopped of course to gawk. The sales man of course all knowing all seeing stated the elect vs gas golf carts are owner preference. Both are the same I power, endurance, and distance. Not being a all knowing all seeing golf cart guy, we left. Still don't have one. So I to am interested in this.

I have to laugh about the (Elect.Only) carts. We were at a CG in VA. (Elect.Only),and the carts were so OLD when they went by the (Rear end Gear) Noise was SUPER LOUD!! Newer (UNMODIFIED) gas carts are Super Quiet! But Hey, (Rules are Rules)! Youroo!!

Place we camp the most at is electric carts only. The club cars have alum. frame so do not rust. (We camp mostly at the ocean). The Eazy Goes have metal frame but both are very good carts. Our dealer buys used golf carts from the golf courses in the north east (shorter seasons) Ocean lakes camp ground sells their used cart for around $2000 rode hard daily & near the ocean..... They have probably 2000 or more rental golf carts ( 300 acre campground)

Price wise for a basic used cart with new batteries around $2000 with options go up from there In 2010 ours was around $3200 with new batteries, flip cargo rear seat, long roof, lights, windshield, hub caps & had a new red body since its original was damaged.

Good Luck !!!

If you get an elec one make sure you get one that is 48 volt. All around better than a 36 volt. As for batteries make sure they are fairly new (1 to 2 yrs) as they are expensive to replace.
Mine is a Club Car DS and painted Plum Crazy Purple.

Also if you get an electric cart get one with the 6 batteries 8 volts each for 48 volts. The replacement batteries are cheaper and the charge lasts longer. We have an electric cart a Club Car with big wheels and a lift kit. All not needed but it came that way. So far we haven't need to be towed back and we us it a lot. We were told to charge it every night.
One other consideration is how long will it sit not being used. The electric wants to be charged and sitting for long periods of time is hard on the battery. On an gas you need to treat the fuel before storing.

We have a Yamaha electric. Awsome cart so far but had I known more about them I would have bout an EZ-GO they have a ton of aftermarket parts and they are cheaper to work on. Yamaha parts are way more expensive and aren't as widely available.


I would prefer a gas cart but a few places don't allow them so we deal with electric. I may get a second cart that is gas EZ-Go or club car.
