Default Electric Club Car has less power and won't go up hills

1998 Electric Club Car 48 volt with batteries that are two years old. Used almost everyday and everything was working fine. All of the sudden it will only go on level ground in forward and reverse. Will not go up any grade of a hill. Batteries have water in them and are holding a charge. Any ideas?

You should load test all batteries. It sounds like a battery problem.
Have you properly maintained them (water, connections, etc)?

Took your advice and took batteries to be checked and they all tested fine. Load test on all 6 batteries and also had each cell checked. Any ideas what to check next?
