why should we
rent a golf cart?
Ask anyone who has visited Put-in-Bay even once, and especially those who've been visiting regularly since they were kids, to name particular reasons for the island's special tourist appeal, and almost without fail golf cart, or "golf cars", make the short list.
It is easy to understand the appeal of golf carts on the Island. Full-sized automobiles, buses, and delivery trucks are severely restricted on the island due to a lack of parking, and golf carts are the primary motorized means of transportation and will fit in to the snuggest of spaces. Most island residents themselves own only golf carts for transportation, which explains what may at first seem like unusual tiny driveways at most homes in Put-in-Bay's residential areas.
With a widely available tourist map in hand or downloadable Put-in-Bay Island Guide from our website, begin your adventure by cruising up and down the streets of the main downotown business area to get the hang of the cart. Then explore some of the charming residential cottages. Finally, head for the hills, literally, and explore the winding hilly roads in the center of the island and find putt-putt golf, wineries, caves, vineyards, antique schoolhouse, ice cream shops, and much much more. All these farther-flung routes will yield breathtaking views, without the need for you to stop to catch your breath after what would otherwise have been a healthy hike!
Brand New Carts
Stayed at the island club and the golf carts were brand new and the price cause I was a guest was the lowest on the island. .....
The manager helped us out because we were concerned with our 2 little ones. She found us one that had longer seatbelts so that they were comfortable in their car seats. Didn't need any upgrades or fancy stuff. We called a day before we were suppose to return it to add an extra day. When we returned it, they gave us a ride back to the ferry in their taxi shuttle. .....
We had an absolute blast driving our golf cart around Put-in-Bay island. We got to see much more of the hidden spots we wouldn't have probably gone with a car or walking. We explored residential areas and saw beautiful homes on the water and even went to a couple local spots to eat and shop. It was easier to park and get where we wanted to go. The staff was nice and explained all the places we could and couldn't drive on (believe it or not, you can't drive a golf cart on the golf course!!!). It is something we will do again on our next trip to the Island Club! .....
Island CLub Golf Carts has very nice staff, excellent vehicles, and takes care of their customers. They will come right to your doorstep to deliver your cart and are always available by phone if you need help. Our trip to Put-in-Bay was extraordinarily fun because we had this wonderful little vehicle to drive to the downtown and we could easily drive our golf cart to the many restaurants and cute littlte shops. Cars are too big for the island roads and a golf cart is definitely the way to go -- have fun, don't DUI, and enjoy Putinbay. .....
The golf cart we rented for 6 passengers was super reliable and comfortably scaled any of the hills on the island, and there are a few! The employees were always friendly, prompt and easy to work with, including during the reservations over the phone. We read the reivews of other places downtown and made sure to go with Island Club instead. I couldn't ask for better. .....
