This is a good summary of case law related to personal injury and property damage.  Local statutes will prevail (not very common) but in general, unless you intentionally try to damage property, the golfer is not liable.  Golf courses can be held liable but most golf communities have covenants that specifically waive the right to sue the golf course.   http://www.willamette.edu/wucl/pdf/sportslaw/spring04/scoffield.pdf   The short of it, don't buy a home on a...
