Frequently asked questions:
Q:Do golf carts sell out on Put-in-Bay Frequently?
A:ABSOLUTELY. Put-in-Bay during season usually sees over 10,000 visitors with under 1,000 carts available. Even though we have the largest cart inventory we still almost always sell out
Q:Which is better gas or electric golf carts?
A:By far gasoline powered golf carts are the way to go. We contemplated going with electric golf carts in the beginning because we like the “green” feel but we found that many travelers were getting stuck with dead batteries as soon as ONE HOUR of usage. Batteries not only are designed in golf carts to last only for a few rounds of golf BUT they also have a very low life expectancy and can give out at any time. Not to mention gas carts are a faster machine.
Q:Can we keep our golf cart overnight at our hotel
Q:Can you get a O.V.I. when operating a golf cart?
