We have been looking into a few subdivisions in Towne Lake (Woodstock) and was wondering in this "golf community" are private golf carts allowed? Not on the golf course, but to go to the pool, playground area, etc.?

There's no prohibition against having one, but they're not really supposed to be on the streets because they're not legal and licensed vehicles. We used to have one, which my husband tooled around the neighborhood in and sometimes we took it around the golf course in the evenings.

Golf carts are not technically legal on the roads in most jurisdictions, but tickets are rare for individuals who are using them on quiet streets in subdivisions. I live in a subdivision with 400+ houses, and dozens of golf carts. I have never heard of anyone getting a ticket.

There is actually a Georgia Supreme Court precedent that states that anyone operating a golf cart on a public road must possess a valid driver's license. However, I don't think necessarily permits the use of golf carts on public roads. The case in question involved an unlicensed driver operating a golf cart in Peachtree City, where the City's law specifically permit the use of golf carts on some public roads.

Bottom line: in most cases, if you use these vehicles reasonably and responsibly, you are probably far less likely to get a ticket.
