Charm. Adventure. Freedom. The draw of a golf cart is, by itself, undeniable, but when the idea of developing an entire city around it becomes reality, it creates a one-of-a-kind spectacle destined to arouse the interest of many. Visitors flock to experience the wonders of Peachtree City, and renting a golf cart is typically the best route to enhanced enjoyment when visiting.
Golf cart rental has become a growing trend in The Bubble, but in some cases, the unknown regarding who, what, when, where, and why while operating restricts people from maximizing the experience. Hesitant on carting etiquette? Here are some common misconceptions and tips for making your next outing a success.
Carting rules and regulations are similar to “real-world” driving rules and regulations. There is a slight twist, so let’s set the record straight: Who exactly IS allowed to drive??
It’s nice to have options, but the best way to address and satisfy your specific needs is to ask a few questions: How big is my crowd? Do I forecast long or short drives? Do I have access to power where I’m staying? Simple questions, yes. Imperative? Absolutely! Take a look at some key pros and cons between electric and gas carts to help get you started:
|ELECTRIC (PROS)||GAS (PROS)|
|No Emissions||No Charging Needed|
|ELECTRIC (CONS)||GAS (CONS)|
|1.5 to 2 Hours Consistent Drive Time||Emissions|
|Minimum 8-Hour Recharge Time||Higher Decibel Output Than Electric|
The process of securing a rental for your next outing is as easy as 1-2-3! Before arriving to pick up a rental, be prepared with the following:
Rental season is year-round, but availability spikes or shrinks depending on the relative closeness to major holidays. In anticipation of July 4th festivities, it’s best practice to begin reserving a cart for your family over a month in advance, typically towards the end of April. With rentals being in such high demand this time of year, availability begins to dwindle 2 weeks leading up to the holiday. Halloween is another holiday to be mindful of, and as you can imagine, Summer tends to be a “HOT” time of year to rent as well (pun intended)!
Nearly all of Peachtree City is accessible by golf cart, however, there are a few limitations in place that may require you to adjust course. In order to avoid confusion, here are some key rules to observe while riding:
