Golf Cart Laws for NMB

Welcome to South Carolina's Grand Strand. We hope you enjoy your visit to one of the best groups of beaches in the nation. You will find the people in this area to be friendly and hospitable.

There are restrictions on the use of golf carts in the State of South Carolina. Golf carts must be insured and registered with the SC Dept. of Motor Vehicles and may not be operated:

  •  On primary highways (This includes US 17; Sea Mountain Hwy.; Ocean Blvd. from Sea Mountain Hwy. to 27th Ave. South; and 27th Ave. South from Ocean Blvd. to US 17)
  •  More than 4 miles from your residence
  •  After dark (½ hr. after sunset until ½ hr. prior to sunrise)
  •  By an unlicensed driver
  •  On any sidewalk

Parents or guardians allowing an unlicensed child to operate a golf cart are subject to a fine in excess of $200. Golf carts being operated in violation of state law are also subject to being towed at owner/renter's expense.

To ensure safe operation of golf carts, the cart should not carry any more passengers than it is designed for. A golf cart is a vehicle and therefore it is subject to the same laws that govern the operation of an automobile upon a public street.

Myrtle Beach Golf Carts Llc strives to keep you informed so you can adhere to all Local and State Laws pertaining to rental golf carts and custom golf carts. Please see below a list of Golf Cart Laws as well as Local Vacation Rental Restrictions.
