       *** Golf Cart License Registration & Renewal ***
    *** Our police will now be enforcing golf cart registration ***

For everyone's safety, please have your golf cart inspected and registered.


On 07/13/21 the village board approved the use of registered golf carts on certain village streets. The board recognized the concern of golf carts being used in the village without proper rules and registration.

The cart has to pass an inspection, performed by a member of the police department. Registration stickers would be issued from May 1 through April 30 of the following year. The initial cost of the sticker would be $50.00 with an annual renewal fee of $25.00. 

Definition of Golf Cart. A "golf cart" shall be as defined in the Illinois Vehicle Code, 625 ILCS 5/1-123. 9, and shall mean a vehicle specifically designed and intended for the purposes of transporting one or more persons and their golf clubs or maintenance equipment while engaged in the playing of golf, supervising the play of golf, or maintaining the condition of the grounds on a public or private golf course. 


Operation of Golf Carts. Subject to the requirements of Section 11- 1426.1 of the Illinois Vehicle Code, 625 ILCS 5/11-1426.1, which is hereby adopted by the Village, and to the provisions of this Ordinance, drivers eighteen (18) years of age and older properly licensed to operate motor vehicles on the streets of the Village shall be authorized to operate golf carts which are registered as provided in this Ordinance on Village streets having a posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less from sunrise to sunset at speeds of 20 miles per hour or less.
