Traffic Tip Tuesdays: Golf Carts

Driving golf carts on public roads in St. Mary's County is prohibited, except in the Golden Beach and Patuxent Knolls neighborhoods in Charlotte Hall.

In those two neighborhoods, golf carts may be operated by those with a valid driver's license, between dawn and dusk. Drivers shall keep the golf cart as far to the right of the roadway as feasible.

The St. Mary's County Department of Public Works and Transportation may designate the county highways in the community of Golden Beach and Patuxent Knolls on which a person may operate a golf cart.

The law allowing golf carts on Golden Beach and Patuxent Knolls roads went into effect in 2017.
