Default Battery distance

I have a 2004 48 volt Precedent supplied with new batteries (6 months). Recently I did 27 holes of golf and just made it home.
The batteries are rated 110ah. Is that really large enough for a golf cart and would 27 holes be considered maximum ?
I was pretty much at fast speed, does that increase the useage ?
What does 200RC mean ?
They are a Bosch HCM 31 850 200RC 110ah.
Normally I just do 18 holes and never any problems. On this occasion I had spare time and no holdups and just kept going so was a bit alarmed that I was running out of gas.
Any comments appreciated.

Yes I was quite surprised by the distance. I trailered to course so it was only course useage.
Most battery ratings I read are 150ah are higher and so thought that 110ah was really to small but just not sure.
I have travelled 2 up before but just 18 holes. I also wondered if running at top speed all the time was significant albeit between shots.

I play 36 holes a day and think I could go another 9 with no problem maybe more.

Those Bosch batteries are starting batteries. You need Deep Cycle batteries designed specifically for Golf Cart use

Sorry but those are Marine Deep Cycle batteries not Golf/Commercial batteries... That is another reason why they are not lasting quite as long as you would expect.

OK I didn't realize that. The cart was just supplied that way. I wondered that the batteries were wrong. Perhaps I will have to keep to 18 holes in the meantime
