Neighbourhood Golf Carts

The Village of Chase is allowing  golf carts to operate on certain roads as part of a pilot project. This project will be monitored and reviewed for two years to make sure that we can accommodate neighbourhood golf carts safely. There will be opportunities for feedback. 

Golf carts must meet certain operating and vehicle requirements to be considered a neighbourhood golf cart.

The municipality will install road signs to alert drivers of the Neighbourhood Golf Cart zone.
