This is electric cart? Can you put the rear axles up on jack stands and run the unit and listen for the source? If it is at the drive motor, you have a bad bearing in the motor or in the opposing drive end where the motor shaft coupes up. The whine would be bad bearing. If noise is at one of the rear wheels, maybe a wheel bearing bad.
