Looking at a 1998 Club Car DS. There is quite a delay from when the pedal is pressed before the engine is starting and goes. Is there a simple explanation for this?

Check to make sure the starter generator belt isn't slipping. If the belt is loose or bad it will slip and cause a delay before it grabs and starts turning the engine over.

I found how to use the search button and checked that. The starter will begin to turn then like it seems to get stuck like the engine is on the compression stroke. It will eventually turn over but just that lag is annoying,

It could be a weak battery, bad connection or possibly the starter. I'd start with load testing the battery.
