Your Golf Cart Connection!
Golf Cart Depot and Island Club Golf Carts are motor vehicles on South Bass Island and driven on public roadways just as cars do. It’s the best way to get to all the things to do in Put-in-Bay. They come in 4-, 6-, and 8-passenger configurations rented hourly, daily or overnight. Golf Cart manufacturers include Club Car and EZ-Go. All carts feature tops, windshields, headlights, turn signals and seat belts and are fully licensed and inspected.
Golf Cart Depot rents by the hour, day or week and is one of the only overnight rentals on the island. All Put-in-Bay golf carts from The Golf Cart Depot are gas powered models. Furthermore, gas powered carts are faster, run for days on a single tank of gas, and do not get slower as the day goes on (as electric golf carts do). In fact, electric carts were only designed to run for a couple rounds of golf and are usually not as durable as commercially built gas-powered golf carts.
