As we all know, the golf course is very large, and golf carts are the means of transportation that can carry bags on the course. It's really troublesome without golf carts, but there are also many rules and matters to pay attention to when using golf carts, which is the focus of our talk today. Let's learn about it next.

The driver can drive an electric golf cart on the course without any driver's license, but only if you master the basic knowledge of driving on the course and can drive without damaging the turf of the course and affecting other people.



Drive the electric golf cart at a constant speed to avoid loud noise. When driving, you should always pay attention to the players around you. Once you find someone preparing to hit the ball, you must stop and wait until he hits the ball before continuing driving.



Due to different seasons and course conditions, golf courses will implement different rules for driving golf carts, the most common of which are two.

First, the golf cart is only allowed to drive in the lane. This rule is applicable to pitches with wet and soft ground to avoid damage to fairway turf.



Second, the 90 degree rule. This rule requires that the golf cart mainly runs on the lane. After reaching the position flush with the ball drop point, it turns 90 degrees at a right angle, crosses the fairway and drives directly to the ball position. After hitting the ball, it drives back to the fairway according to the original road and continues to drive forward. The implementation of the 90 degree rule can not only let players drive to the ball position, but also minimize the damage to the fairway grass.



It must be borne in mind that under any circumstances on any course, it is forbidden to drive (push) the cart and handcart onto the green and the service area, otherwise it will cause serious damage to the course, which is unforgivable. Generally, there will be signs on the golf course to indicate the driving and parking area of the electric golf cart, and players should strictly follow them.



Finally, when using a golf cart, you should pay attention to safety. Here, safety refers to the personal safety of players and the environmental safety of the golf course. I hope this knowledge can help everyone.
