Default Comfortable Distance in a Golf Cart?

What do you guys consider a comfortable distance to travel in a golf cart? 2 miles? Five? Ten? At what point do you say heck with it and hop in the car?

We regularly travel from the north end at Mulberry Grove to Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter approximately 7 to 8 miles. A couple of times we have also traveled to Brownwood which takes about an hour. I don’t remember the distance. We are comfortable with those distances. I don’t ever see us driving via the golf cart to Fenney once it’s connected with Brownwood. As it is from where we are located it’s a 25 mile one way trip via 301, then to 44.

No limit on the number of miles for me during anytime that will ensure me that I get home in NOTHING but daylight. The Comfort time for my wife is about an hour. She has been talking about getting an Atomic Cart. That may increase her comfortable traveling distance. We’ll see. You guys are going to be a great addition to The Villages!

One of the critical things you need to consider is the best seats you can get....that will make any distance so much more comfortable. Everything else will be personal choice, self canceling turn signals, tilt wheel, heater, music, electric or gas....all personal additions.

I live near Palmer Country Club, and I will take a golf cart to any golf cart accessible course. I will drive to rec centers south of 466A if the weather is too cold or time is too tight, but otherwise take a cart. To get to Spanish Springs we always take a cart, even if its cold. To Lake Sumter a cart is super fast, so if we aren’t walking or biking we take the cart. If the weather is really nice, and we have time, we take carts to Brownwood, but usually we drive.

Taking a cart make errands a fun trip rather than a drag. When they get the bridge over the turnpike I will drive my cart down there at least once.

K-Man, I don't know if you can make it from the West Coast to Brownwood! That's really a rough trip especially in one particular type of Golf Cart!

Are the Carts out by you guys Low Riders with Spinners and all playing Santana?? Just wondering??

We use it whenever we are on Villages roads. When it is cold we just zip it up and wear a coat. As someone else mentioned we do have the upgraded adjustable seats (but no nitro)

Wherever I go I use the cart. No car. Nice seats are important and gas.

I'll go as far as possible in a cart. Since I don't restrict my schedule it's pretty much anywhere in the villages.
