Golf carts are a great way to get around the golf course, but it's important to know the rules and regulations for riding in them. The maximum capacity for a golf cart is six passengers, including children. This is to minimize the time the golf cart spends rolling on the grass and to ensure that golfers are comfortable. Over time, golf carts can cause soil compaction, which can lead to poor growing conditions for grass.
Therefore, it's important to stay on the path of the car until you are level with the golf ball, then make a 90-degree turn out of the way of the car and drive straight to the ball. All passengers must wear a seatbelt and remain seated while in the golf cart. It's also important to be aware of any signs or notices that may be posted about specific rules for golf carts on that particular course. Golf courses may have different rules depending on the conditions that day. Additionally, you must request a new golf cart plate every January 1, regardless of when you purchased the old license plate. Golf carts are not allowed near putting greens, so there will usually be signs indicating that no carts are allowed beyond this point.
It's important to note that golf carts specifically exclude go-karts, neighborhood electric vehicles, off-road vehicles, utility vehicles, and all-terrain vehicles, as defined by the Texas Transportation Code. A golf cart license fee is charged for granting a golf cart license and issuing a golf cart license certificate. When renting a golf cart, it's important to keep in mind that they can carry a maximum of 4 to 6 people depending on the size of the cart. The six-seater golf cart is usually in very good condition and looks great with its lift and large off-road tires.
