Own Your Own Golf Cart in Bonita Springs Estero FloridaToday I had a home buyer ask me where in Bonita Springs or Estero, Florida can they own their own golf cart.  Most communities do not allow private, personally owned golf carts on the golf course or even as recreational vehicles off of the golf course.  To that end, I have done a little digging and found a few communities that will allow private golf carts within the community and on the community golf course.  At the time this post was published, at any rate.
