But that is just my opinion, and there are a lot of other more experienced members here who may have opinions on this which differ greatly..........Good luck.
I know someone that has been working on all brands for years. I asked him
what he would would he recommend. He said it would be the EZ-GO/electric.
I like the aluminum of the Club Car as scottyb does, but they both have thier pros and cons. I have the welders to weld the steel and don't for aluminum.
The Aluminum construction of the Club Car doesn't rust, but the battery box parts still corrode unless your very good with your Preventative maintance.
All of the Club Cars seem to have better brakes from what I've seen, but some have issues with the steering strengh for an offroad or hunting type cart.
I think either could be a good cart if you modify them for your intended purpose(whatever it is).
I'm sure you'll find the answer to your qustion if you let everyone knows exactly what you intend to do with it.
The question is even harder because its not as simple as one brand or another, but which brand and model you are comparing to each other.

I hope I don't get killed but...a 48v club car is less than a 36v ezgo. I like the frame and brake system on the club car, but all the stock 48v cc (series) are pretty gutless compared to the 36v ezgo. In my VERY LIMITED experience, a 48v ezgo will be faster and stronger than a 48v club car. I still want the body of club car, but only because I am gonna gut it to go 96v with it. just my 2cent

We have both a 48v Club car factory 4 seater and an EZGo 48v limo. Both brands have advantages. If your looking for bodies or fiberglass stay with the CC. Most other parts are about the same. The brakes on the CC had to go. The cable pulled brakes are dangerous at best and we replaced them with hydraulic rear disc. This was a major improvement. The EZGO has Bendix hydraulic drums and they work great. Getting paint to stay on the ezgo was a challenge but it can be done. Try Allgrip marine/fiberglass paint but be prepaired for the sticker shock, it is not cheap. We use our carts every day as personnel and equipment carriers on an island here on the NC coast. We have had no problems with the CC chassis. However, the ezgo is a different story. We have "rubberized" everything that don't move on the undercarriage and we're on the third battery tray. Maybe the custom aluminum tray will make it more than 3 years with the salt from the bottom and the battery acid from the top. Hope this little bit of info helps.
