Default Golf Cart UTV Hybrid 150cc...ok to use in The Villages?

Set up with proper max speed restriction and tires i would think these would qualify.

The Villages Florida

The biggest factor would be can it go through a tunnel, just about any trip requires going through a tunnel. A Yamaha gas cart is 47" wide, 94" length, 71" high, other than the length, it looks like your vehicle will fit. A Yamaha cart will hold about 6 gallons and gets about 40 to 50 mpg, that tank is less than 2 gallons, might be cutting your trips a bit short. Your HP 8.2 , a Yamaha cart is about 11 HP. It would probably work, but a golf cart is so much better suited.

As far speed, golf carts without a license tag and to operate on the street cart lanes are limited to 20 mph by state law, anything faster is consider an LSV (Low Speed Vehicle) and requires a license tag and full car insurance. Since yours goes 35 and won't have a tag, it might catch the eye of a cop if you're going flat out. Dialing back the speed and changing out the tires would probably be necessary.

A good question is why , just the need to be different, when golf carts are designed for golf if you need it for other reasons I can’t think of one.

Probably get stopped by golf course employee or ambassador if you don't change those tires.

The problem is not the cart paths, it is the fairways.

What is the “Tire Policy”?
Tires on the golf cars to be used on any of The Villages fairways must meet these requirements:
The manufacturer of the tire must refer to the tire as a “golf course tire”.
The tires must have a rounded vertical tread with a maximum depth of 1⁄4 inches. Total tire width must be a minimum of 8 inches.
Tire pressure must not exceed 28 psi.

Yesterday while I was at a customer doing ac maintenance I met a local villager pulling a trailer with a large pressure washer with his golf cart. He pressure washers house and donate the money to a veterans group.
