A fleet of new carts at Cranberry Highlands Golf Course will not only make a more enjoyable experience on the links but save money in the long run.
At the August 3 Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board will consider the purchase of 80 Club Car golf carts via a cooperative purchasing agreement. The overall cost includes the trade-in value of the existing fleet.
The existing fleet of carts is powered by lithium-ion batteries. In nearly five years of use, the batteries are now taking longer to charge between rounds, limiting tee times in many instances. With the warranty expiring on the batteries, and the carts themselves having taken the brunt of more than 172,000 rounds of golf, it is time to replace the fleet.
