Could Davis Islands Finally Become a Golf Cart Community?

Davis Islands Golf Cart Community Davis Islands home owners are pushing for the city of Tampa to allow golf carts as a form of transportation, citing it’s cleaner for the environment, saves energy, reduces fossil fuel consumption, and because it’s also a pretty dang cheap way to get around too. Despite a new petition being active on, this isn’t the first time such a proposal has been discussed, however.

Back in 2010, Tampa Bay Online also reported on the issue of allowing street-legal golf carts, and chatter about making Davis Islands a “golf cart community” goes back even further than that.

But with residents and Davis Islands neighbors once again making a case for allowing this part of the city to be golf cart friendly, it’s certainly possible that street legal golf carts could finally become a reality after several failed attempts.

Aside from the environmental and affordability aspects, residents also feel golf carts will keep speeding throughout the neighborhood to a minimum, and also add to the overall ambiance of the Davis Islands community, which remains one of the most sought-after locations in town for active home buyers browsing the Tampa real estate market.
