Attention: Emerald Isle Rental Property Real Estate Agencies

Per request of the Town of Emerald Isle Golf Cart Committee, I am contacting all Emerald Isle Real Estate Agencies asking for your cooperation in a matter of golf cart safety. The following information pertains to properties that include the owner’s golf cart with a rental.

As you may be aware, our registered golf cart safety rules state the following penalty: “The Town may refuse to register and issue a permit for the operation of a golf cart, or may immediately revoke a previously issued permit, if the registered golf cart and/or the owner of the golf cart is involved in three (3) or more violations of this article and/or violations of North Carolina law within a three (3) year period. Said revocation shall be effective for one (1) year.”

So as to keep all vacationers well informed and safe, and to hopefully protect owners from losing registration privileges, we are asking for your assistance in forwarding the golf cart safety rules either digitally or printed to all future renters. We really appreciate your help in keeping everyone well informed. We hope everyone has a fun, safe season.

The rules are available on the town website. They are also available, with a map at

E.I. Golf Cart Committee meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday every month. All are welcome and we would love to hear ideas on how we can keep everyone safe. Please contact me with any questions.
