Why are multiplying numbers of golf carts driven on the streets of Holden Beach?

F.T. Norton

Q. Why are the multiplying numbers of golf carts allowed to be driven on the public streets of Holden Beach without license plates, inspections or insurance?

A. According to Holden Beach Police Chief Wallace Layne golf carts are treated like any other motor vehicle on the roadway.

“There has not been a significant increase in golf carts on the Island. The carts that do operate here are required to be registered, insured and inspected,” Layne said. “If we see one operating to the contrary a citation is issued.”

If you see a cart operating illegally, Layne said you can call 910-846-6907 to report it.

According to city ordinance, all the streets in Holden Beach (including the side streets) are considered streets or public vehicular areas according to the State Law. This means that to operate a golf cart anywhere on the island, you must meet the standards above. Also, golf carts may not be operated on streets with posted speed limit greater than 35 mph.
