I think the large number of people that enjoy
the wonderful experience of golf cart travel in TV may
form the herd you mention.
They are the adventurous ones and not the followers!

Huh? Because I wasn't "advertising" just disputing others generalization of what golf carts CANNOT do. It is an Atomic but not the model you pictured which I did own for 15mos/10K miles and sold it and recently got the new Lithium model. It is considered and accepted as a golf-cart on the courses but I am a NON-GOLFER which was the point of the thread and is clearly noted on the bumper sticker because I am asked all the time. We use it for 90% of our driving other than when I leave the T.V. bubble. It can be taken on the golf course and is permitted and with the golf bag attachment and turf-tires (both of which I do not have since I do not play golf). I know of 3 owners who use them on the course all the time. The comment I made was in response to someone who incorrectly stated "Do you like A/C when driving around in 90 degree weather and do you like hearing the radio? If the answer is yes, then forget about a golf cart since you don't golf" which I completely dispute because there are options. Traditions change, things change and people get upset by change. Just takes time to get used to changes.

Don't try to drive your Prius on the golf cart paths and you shouldn't have any issues!

It wasn't me but MINI COOPERS are our favorite cars. Your Golf Cart is perfect EDFNJ. I don't know what holding back my wife from pulling the trigger. We shall see. I think the Atomic cart looks great in White but the Burgundy is a close second.

There are so many places a beautiful sign could be posted about no Cars on Cart Paths but NOOOOO! Take away the Guessworkyouknow?

My wife had a Mini for a short period of time, a real white knuckle experience driving it on I-75 to Wesley Chapel, especially when alongside an 18 wheeler--sshe decided to do away with cute and return to Benz--
