Golf Cart Ride, Anybody?


There are over 100 miles of golf cart paths in The Villages, Florida. It is estimated there are over 50,000 golf carts and the world’s largest Yamaha golf cart dealer is located within The Villages. You can pick up an older used cart for under $5,000 to a tricked out cart costing over $20,000.

The Villages recognized how much the residents use and enjoy having a golf cart as their most popular means of transportation.  In the past few years as The Villages continue to grow the need for golf cart bridges over major highways including the Florida Turnpike.  These projects have cost in the millions but are needed to connect all residents to shopping, dining and entertainment centers.

Today there are tunnels and bridges connecting the furthest northern part of The Villages to the southernmost part of The Villages.  This could easily be a 90 a minute drive by golf cart.  Most golf carts can travel about 20 miles an hour.

Want a tour or a ride in my golf cart?  Give me a call!

Good Morning, while I wasn't aware the largest dealer of Yamaha golf carts is in The Villages I have seen the vast amount of carts even at the Square. The Villages is a wonderful place I look forward joining them in 30ish years lets see how far it grows.

I have a friend that lives in the Villages and she's told me the same thing - golf carts are everywhere! On a somewhat related note, I heard recently that there is a shortage of rental golf carts. I'm not sure if that's true, but someone was trying to get carts to rent for an event and they couldn't.

It's true when snowbirds return there isn't enough carts, I am trying to convince our investors that own rentals to purchase carts!

I have always thought it would be nice to live within a community where you could go everywhere with a golf cart.  Being that I drive an electric car, I often feel like I am doing just that, haha.
