A side note for electric carts, take your charger and cables with you. My neighbor in his electric cart was on his way back from Orange Blossom to Tamarind Grove when he ran out of juice. He was on Morse not far from Mallory GC. He didn't have the towing service, so he pushed his cart up to the starter shack and asked the starter if he leave his cart there. The starter said, if you have your cables, you can plug in your cart here, all the starter shacks have a place to charge your cart. So he plugged in is cart and went in the country club to eat. Came back about 90 minutes later and his cart was able to get him home. He has since bought a Yamaha gas cart.

IMHO, that seems about as silly as suggesting to always carry a spare gas can for gas carts, or for all cart owners to carry a spare tire...in case you ever need them.

Chargers are heavy (especially for their size), not exactly cheap (I suppose you can always use a cable/lock for securement)...and take up quite a bit of room in a normal cart basket.

Not to mention what damage that heavy charger might do to a normal cart basket while it bounces around...or even damage to the charger itself.

It's a natural progression when one starts talking about the need to tow golf carts, can't be avoided.

...or you could spend $60 for two years of towing service. That's the point of this thread, it's money well spent and you just listed the alternatives. That was an opening for the obvious reply.
