South Down Shores on Lake Winnipesaukee

Golf Carts

Our gated and private community with meandering streets is the ideal setting for golf carts. Many residents take advantage of this and use their golf cart to visit neighbors, go to the beach and boat club or simply drive around the community.  All golf carts must be registered (and numbered) with South Down Recreation Association and owners must abide by the association regulations. Owners should also check with their individual association for any parking and storage restrictions.


Golf Cart Registration is Mandatory.  All golf carts in both South Down and Long Bay must be registered with TPW Management and have a numbered decal. Drivers with no decals will be stopped by Security, and fines may be issued as approved by the Safety & Security Committee and the South Down Council.  If you have not yet registered your golf cart, please contact TPW Management to register.
