"No Cart Zone" Reminders

Example of "No Cart Zone" on Catalina #1

"No Cart Zones" are in effect on all courses open to cart traffic  

As cart traffic returns to the courses after overseeding the "No Cart Zones" will also be returning.  All cart traffic is restricted in these areas.  These areas will provide a visual yellow line that should not be crossed by any golf cart, including   "Medical Flag Carts" .   This system will improve on course safety and course conditioning.

Reminders:

* A yellow line will designate the "NO CART ZONE" on each hole

* The gates must still be used by all carts

* Fairway cart signs should still be used as the proper location to exit the fairway and return to the cart path

*Sad #2, Cat #5, Cat #6, and Cat #8 will not have lines due to limited space and/or steep slopes.  All carts should remain on the path when around these specific green complexes or holes if it is a par 3

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to improve golf course safety and enhance course conditioning.
