Even if they were I'd avoid the wet areas!

I would think no, there are already too many crazies on four wheels. I would think those would tear up the fairways more. Kinda like an elephant wearing high heels thing.

Could be. So many people now don't follow the 90 degree rule on the fairways and travel on them the whole length of the damn things through wet areas and all.

Interesting question. The pounds per square inch of tire contract surface area might actually be less than a typical golf cart, but there might be more chance of wheel spin and the kick-stand on the two-wheeled versions might leave a divot.

Per https://www.golfthevillages.com/golf...dgolfguide.pdf

“• UTV Golf boards, bicycles and motorized bicycles are prohibited on the golf courses.“

O please, the small the width of tire the more change of loosing traction. Golf cart tire are fat tires. Being he didn’t reference any dimensions or tread pattern no way of knowing what it could do on grass surface, if and big if the tire spun.

Being the OP didn’t post any information? I guessing this what he’s talking about?

The link provided by another that goes to the Villages goodgolfguide.pdf says,

"3. Total tire width must be a minimum of 8 inches"

So I'd guess anything over that would be legal as well.

I read the pdf you posted and it says nothing about prohibited vehicles that my half blind self could find. Would you please post the exact location? Thanks in advance

That definitely looks like what the OP is referencing.
Only problem when 2 people per cart resumes where will the passenger sit?

Call the tee times office . While they might not be able to answer your question directly, they can refer you to the department that will .

Better that relying on all of the speculation you’ve received thus far ….

While “technically” they might be ok for use on a golf course does not mean that The Villages will allow it…..

My gut feeling ? No ….
