Another vote for Country Power in Webster if you want new.. Plenty of used available on TO TV every day. Would only buy Yamaha. Get the seat upgrade.

Default Pros if buying a golf cart outside the V

My guys from my golf group have purchased golf carts from carts and clubs new and used. We haven’t had any problems with the dealer in 9 years. They come to your house and service the cart

No one has mentioned Atomic Cool Karts in Wildwood. The carts are manufactured in China and are not designed for large people but for most are a great alternative to a Yamaha with a cab. You get electric windows, air conditioning, heater, windshield wipers, radio, back up camera, and remote controlled locks with your fob. Love mine.

Carts & Clubs on 301 just before you hit Ocala city limits were about $600 less when I priced new Yamaha carts vs the Villages Carts. However, many of my friends have bought refurbished Yamaha carts from Birdie golf on 466 across from Hacienda Mission Villas and have been very satisfied.

We have two. We have one that is now 18 years old that was used and still perking along fine with good maintenance and repair and we have one purchased new from The Villages. Our resident expert makes the choices about golf carts and I handle world affairs. So far his decisions are doing better than mine.

My cart came with everything except the Sunbrella (spelling) and mirrors. They added the Sunbrella for I think $400 and I put the mirrors on for about $35. I got custom reclining seats with armrests for $800. The Villages charges $1900 for the same seats and they get them from the same place.

Yep, The Villages Golf Carts are convenient and that comes at a cost.

This was my experience. I saved thousands and picked my colors, fabric and options.

My neighbor spent over 16k for his and could've got the same cart with the same options for about 12k.

I have nothing against the Villages selling golf carts and having a large territory that keeps out the competition for the Yamaha carts. They can sell them for whatever they want. They add quality parts to a great cart and I recommend them to anyone not worried about cost over convenience.
