Golf carts do not have the right of way vs the cars. Pedestrians do. But if your in a golf cart you have to obey the rules of the road just like someone on a bike. Cars have to yield to pedestrians but not the carts. I live in that neighborhood and always drive slow, especially near the course. I will always stop for a cart but I have seen them dart out into traffic thinking that cars have to yield to them.
