Default 2011 Club Car Battery Issues

I work as a Manager of outside operations at a club in upstate Ny. We just bought new golf carts last year. Precedent models. I have been observing carts being charged all night and barely making 18 holes the next day. We make sure the water is caught up bi-monthly and the dealer just checked a dozen batteries and said they were all good. After the dealer left i personaly played a round with the cart and it started dying on 18. Any ideas or personal experiance with this will be appreciated.
\ Thank You kev.k

Thank you and hello from Albany, Ny. The battery set up is six 8-volt PowerDrives. I dont know what AH is so i cant answer that one. I have been tracking this problem for a month now going over our electrical set up and making sure the carts are always watered. Im thinking either Computer Problems or there is some sort of power drain happening.

I was talking to the cart boy at our club the other day and they have battery problems too although the carts are closer to 4 years old, some with newer bats though because they replace when left with no other choice. I think its a combination of maintenance and excessive use. I doubt any golf course cart will have the same success as a privately owned cart that gets less usage and better maintenance.

Also if those carts are seeing multiple rounds between charges that could be draining them too low.
