Considering how tough it can be to decipher, we’re going to go over them and attempt to make the rules a little clearer.

General Golf Cart Rules

The first two sections can be summed up pretty easily as; Follow the normal rules of the road. Drivers must be 16+, don’t use alcohol or drugs, obey traffic signs, you must use a hands free device, etc. All of those kinds of rules. Those rules apply to vehicle usage in the campgrounds, they also apply to golf carts.

Now, where the rules vary a little bit are; Children cannot sit in a drivers lap BUT young children can sit in a passengers lap. However children cannot assist in driving. You cannot offroad and you must stay on designated cart paths at all times.
