As some of you are already aware, we recently got new fleet of golf carts. Since we lease the carts, usually for 4 or 5 year period, please drive carefully so we can keep them in tip top shape for their lease period. As is always the case, please keep golf carts at least 30 feet away from the greens and tee boxes. If you have any issues with a cart, please notify the pro shop. You must have a learners permit or driver’s license to drive a golf cart.
