Golf carts are not authorized to be operated on the public (State-owned) highways within the Town of North Topsail Beach. They are also not allowed to be operated on the North Topsail Beach bike/pedestrian path.
Golf carts were only permitted for use on private property until an August 6, 2015 ordinance allowed for the use of golf carts on some Town-owned public streets WITH A PERMIT.
Please read the ordinance and see the documents below on how to obtain a permit. Permits are issued on an annual basis.
