Which is the Best Vacation Golf Cart Rental Model? – Carolina Beach, NC

When you vacation at Carolina Beach, you’ll need an easy way to get around…to the beach, to nearby restaurants, to the ice cream shop several blocks away. The solution? Rent a golf cart – or low speed vehicle (LSV) – from SunFun Golf Carts. 

SunFun offers a number of golf cart rental options. In this blog, we describe the types of golf cart models you can choose from when you visit Carolina Beach, NC.

Types of Golf Cart Models

When deciding on a golf cart to rent, you will have a few choices to make:

  • Gas or electric?

  • 4-passenger or 6-passenger?

  • Lifted or non-lifted?


Gas Golf Carts

PROS: Gas golf carts tend to be more powerful than electric carts, letting them pull heavier loads. And while you won’t have to worry about your cart’s battery life, you WILL need to monitor fuel levels and refill your gas cart if necessary. 

CONS: The main downsides of gas golf carts are the fuel refills and environmental concerns. The emissions from gas golf carts compete with our beautiful beaches. Additionally, gas golf carts offer a slightly rougher ride. They give off a mild vibration, make more noise, release more exhaust odors, and radiate heat from beneath the seats. While both gas and electric golf carts are reliable, gas golf carts have more parts – and thus, are more likely to go bad or develop an unforeseen issue.



Electric Golf Carts

PROS: The most obvious benefit of electric golf carts is the lack of emissions. Not only are electric carts better for the environment, but recharging them typically costs less than paying for gas – especially if you are just renting. Running on battery instead of gas also means that you’ll get a smoother, more peaceful ride without all the noise, smells, and vibrations of gas carts. And while gas golf carts are typically faster than most electric carts, that’s not the case SunFun’s electric Advanced EV golf carts. Getting up to 25 mph, our readily available Advanced EV golf carts are street legal at Carolina Beach AND Kure Beach. 

CONS: The main drawback of electric golf carts is the battery life. It can be challenging to determine when electric carts will run out of battery. And depending on the cart, you may only be able to ride 30 to 40 miles on a single charge. While that may not seem like very much, most people only travel 5 to 10 miles per day.


4-Passenger vs. 6-Passenger Golf Carts

Whether you’re renting a golf cart for two or need to accommodate the whole family, we’ve got you covered. SunFun offers 4-passenger AND 6-passenger golf carts – gas and electric, lifted and non-lifted.


Lifted vs. Non-Lifted Golf Carts

If you plan to take your golf cart rental somewhere with slightly more rugged terrain, you may want to consider a lifted golf cart. Given a little boost, lifted carts have larger tires that can handle rougher terrains and heavier loads. They are easier to get in and out of. And, with larger tires comes the ability to reach higher speeds!
