The speed limit is 5MPH and must be used for transportation to and from only. You must carry, at a minimum, liability insurance on your golf cart. If requested, you agree that you will provide us with a copy of your liability insurance policy within 5 days of the request. All damages and injuries resulting from your golf cart are your full responsibility. If operated at night, carts must have lights that are pointed downward so they do not disturb other campers. Golf carts must be operated respectfully. Failure to comply with golf cart rules (speed, underage drivers, etc.) may result in the removal of the golf cart from the property.
