Question: Do you own a private golf cart?
Answer:
Private golf carts are NOT permitted on the golf course and only street legal golf carts are allowed on the community streets. If you are driving a private golf cart that is not street legal, or the driver is under the age of 16, you are subject to receive a ticket or fine from the Chattanooga Police Department since the community streets are within City limits. 
We have received MANY reports of young drivers in golf carts driving recklessly within the community. While the streets are City streets and we have no jurisdiction or enforcement authority, we implore all of our residents to consider the dangers of driving a golf cart through our community, and ensure that they and their children are obeying the law, and looking out for their safety.
REQUIREMENT: All private golf cart owners are required to complete a waiver for Black Creek Club and Black Creek Mountain HOA liability purposes. By completing, owners will receive a decal sticker to display on their golf cart that authorizes them to drive around the community.
Please CLICK HERE to download the waiver and please return the signed copy to Leanne Strickland, lstrickland@blackcreekclub.com to receive your decal. We are concerned of everyone's safety in Black Creek Mountain. Please help your neighbors and report any reckless activity to our staff.
