I have owned it all. Club Car is the best chassis (They don't rust). My last 3 were EZGO (they do rust unless you keep after chassis scrapes).
My current is a 4-seater gas EZGO car. It's so much easier than charging all the time and runs long distances if you take it somewhere.

Depending on where you stay, you might want to check with the campground on use of golf carts. In Maryland, state parks consider the roads within the parks as state roads and prohibit golf carts and other unlicensed motorized vehicles. Also require children to wear bicycle helmets.

I agree, first determine where you want to go. Depending on the park or resort some limit their use and others only allow electric carts. Gas carts are usually more powerful and run longer, but are restricted in certain areas.
