SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla - Investigators were on scene for most of the day sifting through the charred debris.
After taking a closer look, investigators say the fire is accidental.
They believe it was an electrical problem that sparked the blaze.
Eyewitnesses say the fire was intense sending a thick haze of heavy smoke through neighborhood.
"I was just amazed it spread so quick," said Doug Jones, who lost his golf cart in the fire.
36 golf carts were destroyed in the fire
The building is also a loss.
Investigators have determined the fire was caused by an electrical problem, possibly in the area where the golf carts plug- in to the wall to re-charge.
The Whiskey Creek Country Club is still open for business.
The president of the club says 12 new golf carts will be delivered Friday.
Once they arrive, club president Bob Teegarden says they'll be back on course.
"It's slow. We're putting together a plan to stay in business over the next few days," he said.
