I just have a cheap plain one. 99 EZ Go TXT 36V. Fine for knocking around the neighborhood. It has fortunately been well away from the salt it's entire life. Picked it up from a neighbor with new motor, controller, and batteries for $1500.

On the farm we have a Carryall (gas), DS gas, and what's left of a 91 EZ Go electric that used to be at the beach house. Thing is about rotted through, and just keeping it around until the batteries die or the frame brakes in half. Works good for taking my grandmother back and forth from across the road, since it's the one out of the bunch not typically covered in farm grime.

I have an EZ-GO RXV. It's the fastest stock electric one I've owned but I'm thinking about getting rid of it and getting one with a front facing second seat. At the farm we have Rangers.

Club car uses aluminum frame, EZgo is steel. golf course fertilizer eats up the steel frames. Otherwise, they are all built like tanks.

Golf carts are stupid fun, make you feel like a kid again. We loved having ours when we lived in a golf cart friendly neighborhood.

I call this my freedom mobile, it ranks #3 behind my boat and tractor for my favorite possessions. It's gas powered, and will do right at 25mph. Street legal, so I can drive it to the Dollar General to buy beer on the weekend. My goal in life is to live such a lifestyle that all I need is a golf cart or boat to get around. She's got a few more Clemson tiger paws on her now, took this pic right after it was delivered.

I have one at both places. Load the gear, coolers, etc, and tool over to the boat. Load garbage and recycle material, tool 1/2 mile to the condo dumpsters. Take it out once a week to check the condo marina (184 slips, 2/3 mile of seawalls) because I am on the marina committee. I started my grandson on it when they moved into the same complex, and taught him the basics of driving. When he hit 15, he asked me to teach him to drive. The golf cart was a great place to learn the basics. I had never even been in a golf cart before I bought the first Club Car. Aluminum frame is crucial in Gulf Shores...

wife’s anniversary present last year. Both our places are golf cart approved so we take it back and forth to the beach. She loves it and drives it everywhere.
it has an 18 h.p. Vanguard big twin. Right now it’s set up to run 30 m.p.h. Which is fast enough.

Are those like the WalMart scooters for fat people, but for use outside?

In some cases. Mostly for booze cruising the neighborhood and farm.

Mine gets me the 3/4 mile down to my boat. It's also more socially acceptable to drink beer and drive around.

Had one; Sold it. Local cops were cracking down on riding around with a beer on it; charging open container and testing for DUI for cooling off after work in the hood. Wasn't worth it; I never used it anyway and bought a bicycle.

that sucks royally. One of the guys that rides with me, or me with him to enjoy a cigar and beer is a deputy. I have no hesitation to enjoy a beer on the cart. Falling down drunk isn’t cool either.

Just bought a 2019 Club Car tempo. Lifted. We love it! Golf cart friendly neighborhood. Downtown they allow the carts you can see there's a police inspection sticker on the back of it.
