Did you know the Villages® is home to more than 75,000 golf carts!

A recent study conducted by John Castaldo of The Villages Health – showed of all golf cart crashes, 48% resulted in hospitalization, severe trauma, or death.  Of these, ejection occurred in 27%, hospitalization in 55% and death or disability in 15% of the crashes.

Every month the VHA presents this popular clinic for the benefit of all Villagers; full-time residents, snowbirds, and even guests, to make our golf cart community safer and educate cart drivers of all ages.

The VHA Golf Cart Clinic is held the Third Wednesday of the month, with classes beginning at 9:00 a.m.
