MA Golfers With Disabilities Now Allowed to Use Golf Carts

Massachusetts golfers with an ADA-recognized or medically documented disability are now allowed to use golf carts, according to the lateness guidelines set by Governor Charlie Baker’s office. 

Previously, golf carts were banned for everyone in the state. 

The update came in an email well after 10:30 p.m. on Sunday night.
