Default 2002 DS "hopping" & slow up hill

My 2002 stock club car electric today just about stopped while go up a mild hill after hopping while pushing full throttle. I only used it for 7 holes after a full charge. I think I saw a message that this might be a battery issue. I checked all batteries and they came to 44 volts. My question is, is this a battery issue or something more serious.

I would say batteries 44volts pretty low, how old are batteries? do you charge it after every use? check water level often?.

Well I guess I should have asked first 48 volt cart? assuming it is I would bet on the batteries are bad.

Thanks for the input. The batteries are over 4 years old with moderate use. I always keep water levels and do charge it when not in use. Yes, it is 48 volt system(6x8v). Plugged in overnight and now at 51.4.
Any other ideas...

It has to rest for 12 hours before you check your pack voltage again, that will give you a true reading. Check the state of charge sticky at the top of the forum, it seems like your batteries are at the end of their life.
