Golf carts are still not allowed on or along state roads, including:

  • U.S. Highway 15-501
  • Page Road north and south of N.C. Highway 211
  • N.C. Highway 211
  • N.C. Highway 2
  • N.C. Highway 5
  • Morganton Road
  • Linden Road

Drivers are required by law to have insurance and a valid permit for golf cart use. Details of the ordinance are available on the Village of Pinehurst Web site.
