My Dad had a electric golf cart. I drove it often and my kids grew up driving it around his Chesapeake Bay development. I got to use a gas model of the same cart at Ohio University and was surprised at the noise and vibration. Electric is the way to go, much less disruption or objections in campgrounds. Also an electric cart requires a charger, no need to carry gas, oil, tune ups, etc. The batteries lasted for many years.

My preference is a Club Car and I like a 2007 or newer. I have a 2007 and a 2012. Both are great and I have had no issues with either one. I like the aluminum frame and I think the electric is the best.
Also make sure you get a 48 volt system if getting an electric cart. The best is a 6 8 volt system.

I have a 36V Ezgo and a 48V Yamaha. Both are great carts, the Yamaha is a little faster and climbs better. I have had 2 gas carts and much prefer the electrics. the batteries in the Ezgo will be replaced in the spring, they will be 9 years old. Both carts sit 6 month of the year in storage 1 in WA the other in TX. I agree with phil57 if you get a 48V, go with the 8V batteries they seem to hold up much better than the 12V models. ymmv

I don't know much about golf carts, but we saw one at a campground that fit in the back of a campers pt cruiser. It seem to have alot of power and handled well when he took us for a ride. It is called a cricket.
It folds up as small as 58x32x28, weighs 303 #. You can go to their website cricketgo-ez.com.
It has been about 2yrs since we saw it an eventually would like to get one.

Club car for sure if you live in rusty conditions it has a aluminum frame. Gas or electric? Batteries can run up to $1,000 bucks most camp grounds that due allow golf carts only allow electric. I have a lift tricked out club electric 30 mph and a ezgo rxv limo which is totally different from any other electric cart. My inlaws have a Yamaha electric and there grand kids have give it heck in the pasture. It will really depend on how it's going to be used and what options you want.
