If you just using golf cart for transportation, then I like my Segway. It has a range of 24 miles on a charge at 12.5 mph and rolls up on ramps through my door into the MH. You can put fat tires on it and most golf courses allow it as a golf cart. New cost: $5,200

The 48 volt carts have a better range, and more climbing power than the 36 volt units ; BUT ; when the time comes to replace batteries, because they use six 8 volt (= 48 ) , opposed to the six 6 volt (=36) set up, your choice of battery suppliers is limited and the price

As others have mentioned , some parks/courses , only allow electric carts.
Gas carts , although they don't have the expense of battery replacement, do have carbs and drive and driven clutches that require maintenance.

So far (knock wood) we have had no issues with our gasser. Have replaced the starting battery but that is to be expected.

Some of the "luck" we have had I attribute to only using non-ethanol fuel in it. I do the same in all of our small engines, boat and Sea Doos.

We also have learned and expensive lesson in letting friends kids drive the GC. GC was OK, MH went to body shop for a small ding. Never told her folks though.

I have also noticed on the 48 volt cart it takes very little throttle pedal to cruise at 15mph which is much better on the batteries. You do not overheat them because discharging them fast. My stock cart will go over 20mph which is plenty fast. The model is a RVX EZ GO.
