Keep your options open. Rent before you buy. Some people spend 20k on a cart.

I can only tell you what works for me.

I have a leased smart car and an e-bike. I'm happy to walk the execs and rent a cart at the championship courses for $5 a nine. I can cruise at 19 mph using peddle assist on the e-bike, feel the breeze, feel safe, use any road and park it anywhere. Just getting there is another activity. And I have a 25 mile range. I tow a pull cart too.

I'm always comfortable in the car and like to listen to NPR on the way to someplace in the villages.

If I need to go to the airport I take the van pick-up.

If I need to go outside the bubble, I won't drive further than Ocala if I can't carpool.

When people visit me I can't pick them up at the airport.
