GOLF CART ORDINANCE

The establishment of a golf cart ordinance is necessary to address the interests of public safety. Read more to learn about our ordinance and process for obtaining a golf cart permit. If you have any questions, please contact Sergeant Wes Monroe at (704) 822 - 2937 or wes.monroe@mtholly.us.

At the August 26, 2019 City Council Work Session, the City Council discussed and approved a revision of the golf cart ordinance. Please note the following updates:

Golf carts will now be allowed on non-residential streets as well as residential streets within the City limits. Under state law, golf carts are not just limited to City streets and can be operated on certain state-maintained roads. The revision to the ordinance removes the restriction to residential roads.

Golf carts will now be allowed on certain roads that have a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less (previously 25 miles per hour).

Golf carts may not be operated on Highways 273, 27, or 16 and may only be operated on public roads that have been certified as golf cart roads.

Golf carts may not be operated on the following streets or roadways regardless of the speed limit, except that golf carts may cross the below-listed streets/roadways perpendicularly (at a 90-degree angle) to gain access from an approved street/roadway to another approved street/roadway:

Any portion of NC 273, including but not limited to Beatty Drive, South Main Street from the intersection of Rose Street to the intersection of Rankin Avenue

Any portion of Highland Street, North Main from the intersection of East Charlotte Avenue to Mountain Island Road, and Mountain Island Highway to Lucia Riverbend Highway

Any portion of NC 27

Any portion of NC Highway 16
