Yep. If there are houses, I'll be more strategic and I won't just swing away. I'm too cheap to pay for property damage lol.

 

You know the +/- game Erik was talking about?  You can just do an adjust version.  Instead of picking a spot in the fairway to hit you guys can pick which roof you are going to peg instead.

It's called a Stupid Monkey badge, not a Just Plain Stupid badge. a3_biggrin.gif

The look of pure delight and joy on Erik's face when I asked that was hilarious.

Does that pretty much sum it up?

No, here's the backstory...

 

We're sitting down eating, and this place is rather large, so I ask Erik where the restroom is...not knowing that it's literally about 1 foot behind me. The door behind me had the sign Jamo posted right on it. Erik looked so happy that he got to point that out and call me an idiot. lol

It did seem to be the highlight of the lunch b2_tongue.gif

I'm not sure if that's a product of luck, or me playing it safer when there was a threat of property damage and/or lawsuits. lol

 

I can hit them as wild as anyone, but I never came close to a house or person. b2_tongue.gif

 

(Ever since I NAILED a house on a course and got reamed back when I was like 16, I've always tried to be more cautious around them)

Homeowners/Renters insurance takes care of all property claims on golf course.  At least that's what a lawyer acquaintance has told me.

Minus their deductible.  As a point of reference, my homeowners deductible is $2,000.

 

I may be in a minority and believe in personal responsibility more than some, but I still believe that if I damage someone's property, I should pay for it......

 

......and no, I don't think that because someone chooses to live adjacent to a golf course, that they assume some sort of risk, and that I'm somehow absolved of responsibility for my own conduct/actions.

Well, I mean...they DO assume risk. I feel like that's un-debatable. You buy a house right on a golf course, your house is going to get hit. Not maybe, but it WILL get hit.

 

But I agree that the people playing are not absolved of responsibility. Just because they assume that risk of getting hit, doesn't mean you're not responsible for breaking their window. The risk should be that their window may get rocked, not that they have to pay for it.

They bought a house adjacent to a golf course.  I hit my ball off the golf course.  a4_sad.gif

 

You and I agree about our responsibility for our actions though.  c2_beer.gif    You may be surprised/disappointed to find how many others don't.....

Right, it's absolutely your (or my) fault for hitting their house. If I hit someone's car or house, they're getting my info. If I hit them, I don't feel bad because I always scream FORE if one of my shots come within' 20 yards. b2_tongue.gif

 

Yeah, you hit your ball off the course, but they knew buying the house that guys from the PGA tour weren't gonna be the only ones playing that course, so there is a known risk that their house is gonna get shanked all over. lol

 

I wouldn't be surprised, I know people are a-holes who try to shy away from any kind of personal responsibility...

Has anyone ever seen someone break a window, damage a car, etc and NOT pay for it? That would take some major cajones.

Nope. But you know it happens. 

 

"No, that wasn't me...I didn't hit that."
