Golf Cart Bylaw

Municipal Bylaws

Saskatchewan municipalities can pass bylaws allowing golf carts on certain municipal roads, subject to certain limitations and SGI approval. Each municipality is responsible for submitting their own golf cart bylaw. Bylaws need to comply with best practices and must be approved by SGI before they’re deemed in force. A golf cart bylaw isn’t required if a municipality chooses not to allow golf carts on public roads.

Bylaws will only be approved if specific conditions are met:

  • All drivers must hold a minimum of a valid Class 7 driver's licence.
  • Owners must carry a minimum of $200,000 in 3rd-party liability insurance. They must also provide proof of insurance at the request of a peace officer.
  • Golf carts cannot operate on any roadway with a posted speed over 50 km/h.
  • Golf carts will be required to display a slow-moving vehicle sign.
  • Golf carts can only be operated during daylight hours (half an hour before sunrise to half an hour after sunset) on roadways.
  • Golf carts cannot be capable of operating at a speed of more than 24 km/h on level ground.
  • Golf carts must not be operated on any provincial highway, other than to cross one.
  • The bylaw must identify the road or part of the road within the municipality where the operation of a golf cart is permitted.
  • Municipalities must include in their bylaw that they will monitor and inform SGI of any collisions that occur and if there were any injuries or fatalities.

SGI works with municipalities to identify and manage the risks and hazards associated with operating golf carts on public roads. We do this by adopting a set of best practices that address common safety concerns such as, but not limited to:

  • the definition of a golf cart
  • qualifications of the driver
  • range and route restrictions
  • hours of operation
  • speed restrictions
  • minimum insurance requirements
