If you come down to Mt Pleasant, dont bring your golf cart. A buddy of mine was driving a friends golf cart in old village and got an open container ticket for $450 and a no insurance ticket for $400.

Glad the cops were there to protect and serve.

People go to Dollar General because they don't have to get dressed up like they would to go to Walmart....

I am another guy with a work cart. I do a lot of neighborhood stuff for the community association (not a legal HOA) and this is my maintenance vehicle

Nothing special. Just an electric EZ Go at camp. Bought it 6 or 7 years ago just for fun. Now that my wife is handicapped it comes in pretty handy taking her around to see friends at camp.

All about convenience my brother, I’d buy my beer, Gatorade and boiled peanuts from a nazi cannibal driving a windowless van if it meant not having to deal with traffic or the masses on my Saturday.

Millions of people around the world wish they could walk or ride bikes. And Americans ride around in golf carts that cost more than used cars lol. But I do not bash, because I enjoy a scooter (moped) myself

No argument. I'm amazed at the # of Dollar generals popping up..they must be doing something right...

I personally don't have one, but literally half my neighbors in a 20 house neighborhood do. We have cul-de-sac parties almost every weekend and everyone parks their carts in a big circle. They are super fun.

I've always wanted to buy one and swap out the motor with a Hayabusa motor, or something stupid like that. Would be a fun project.

Prices on these things is all over the place which is nuts. I cant believe what some places can charge. I looked around for a long time and decided to go with the guy i did. They take cart off lease from gold courses , tear them down to the frame then rebuild from the frame up. so its a 2017 in new condition and a two year warranty. had it for a week now and loving this thing.

And Tprice.. that polaris is cheating. those are fun... I thought about one of those too but i have a teenager and he would be all over that thing. Cant get him out of the cart as it is

Thats what mine was. IMO, thats the way to buy one, if you are getting electric.I bought mine from a large golf cart dealer in the upstate SC, and it was like an assembly line. What color body?What color top, and interior? Lift? Which set of wheels (he had about 4 styles to choose from). I was there early on a Saturday morning, and had to wait for the 4 or 5 guys in front of me doing the exact same thing. It took about 45 minutes total, and most of that was waiting.

Prices are all over the place. And bulk buys are super cheap. I used to work for a material handling company. We would buy them by the truckload for our own technicians to get around large plants on, and also for resale to the plants.

Could consistently buy a 3 year old cart for about $2k, with existing batteries. Same age cart with new batteries and a back seat down at the beach is 2500 more. That's nowhere close to 2500 worth of parts. Just the difference in the market.

Golf carts are pretty much mandatory in my neighborhood as we have a boardwalk type cart path that gets us from the road down to the marina. Would be a longish walk to carry stuff without it.

About 3 years ago I bought a 2011 president for $2500, added a lift kit and new tires, and then my teenagers promptly flipped it (thank god no one was hurt) and destroyed the oversized roof and supports. I think i am going to wait for them to go to college before I put any more $ in it. It runs 19-20 which is perfectly fine, if not overkill, for where we are at. Had to replace batteries last year.. Gets used everyday. Nickname is "the nut".

Here's a "two fer" my truck and cart! 2017 EZ GO gas. No electric cart for me! The factory lift rode like a log wagon so I took it off and installed a Jakes long arm coil over and now it is butter smooth! Wetsounds sound bar sounds good but now I want the sub ..lol It is the official "Grand Children taxi!

Maybe it's different in SC but in Florida you would have to have DOT approved seat belts to be legal as a LSV.
