When visiting The Villages, you might want to rent a golf cart. It is after all the primary mode of transportation around here with more than 60,000 carts zipping around the neighborhood.
If you are visiting on Lifestyle Preview Program, your rental will come with a golf cart. However, as many people have written in to me about, you might be disappointed with the performance:
“Our lifestyle preview included a golf cart that was governed to not exceed 12MPH. What a joke! Golf carts were tailgating us and passing us left and right the entire week.”
Fortunately, most of the places I listed here also rent carts. Keep in mind that several factors go in to what you will end up paying to rent a golf cart and the choices available to you.
These factors include time of year (during the busy season Jan-April many places don’t have carts available), how many seats you need (2 or 4 usually), the speed of the carts, whether or not they have enclosures (tip: you definitely want enclosures), and how long you want to rent for.
Most companies rent on a weekly or monthly basis, but some rent by the day if that’s what you need. Call and see what you can work out.
