In the past few months, I’ve noticed an increase of recreational vehicles/equipment utilizing the pedestrian sidewalks throughout PGA National. For those who may be unaware that PGA National has a rule in place to ensure the safety of all those that utilize the side walks properly. The following is an excerpt from the Property Owners Association Rules and Regulations book:
6.14 – Golf carts, mopeds, gopeds, gocarts, scooters and other motorized equipment are not allowed on pedestrian/bike paths, sidewalks, parks, parking areas or grass and swale areas except in the course of maintenance duties, or, as to golf carts, for the purpose of crossing such paths or areas in a direct route along a golf cart path where the golf cart path intersects with the path or area. PLEASE NOTE: VIOLATIONS OF THIS RULE MAY RESULT IN THE IMMEDIATE SUSPENSION OF GOLF CART PRIVILEGES. ADDITIONALLY, PURSUANT TO THE DECLARATION, FINES MAY BE IMPOSED FOR EACH SUCH VIOLATION.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, this section shall not prohibit the use of vehicles specifically designed for the disabled; such use shall be subject to the prior written approval of the POA.
Your safety is our concern. I just wanted to take a brief moment of your time to make you aware of this rule, so that we can all share in ensuring the safety of everyone in PGA National. As always secure your vehicle, and never leave valuables in plane sight. Together we can make a difference, never hesitate to call security at 561-627-1600. Report all suspicious people and activities because the smallest piece of information may be the biggest part of the solution. Keep your garage door closed when not in use and set your alarm when you leave your home.
