Golf Carts?

We have never been to the gulf, reading up on golf carts. Do people use them to go to and from the beach? I read a rule they cannot be used on the road... but I'm also reading people do use them on the road. This would make a big difference to us as we'd like to spend most of our time reading/relaxing on the beach, but want to be close enough to run back to the rental. Advice is appreciated, thank you!

I was able to find info, answering my own question, for others:

From: http://www.crystalbeach.com/4-wheel.htm

Rules for the operation of a Golf Cart

A golf cart is a motor vehicle. All rules that apply to a car or truck also apply to golf carts, including traffic laws. All rules apply on the beach also.

You must have a valid driver’s license to operate a golf cart.

You may only operate a golf cart on a roadway (including ditches) that has a speed limit of not more than 35 mph. YOU CANNOT OPERATE ON A HIGHWAY. You may cross the highway at a traffic control device but only go straight across.

You can only operate a golf cart between sunrise and sunset.

You must have a Slow Moving Vehicle Triangle on the rear of the golf cart.

Neither the driver nor passenger of a golf cart may have an open container of alcohol, even if it is not moving.

If an unlicensed driver is operating a golf cart, the parent or person in charge of the cart may be charged with “allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle".

A golf cart must have a Bolivar Beach Parking Sticker to park on the beach.

If the golf cart is equipped with safety belts, they must be worn.
