Just crossed my arms and glared.

I've had balls land within 10' of me multiple times at Kittyhawk and Community with no warning. It is pretty bad here which might be why that guy over-reacted.

He didn't really over react, it just seemed like no matter what I said he would be pissed off. So i just apologized and let it go from there.

 

Yea community gets an absurd amount of play, especially during league play after work on the weeknights.

You handled it the best way possible. Was it 13 on the inside course?

Last time I played there, the greens were in bad shape. Tons of night crawler holes. Is it in good condition?

Not really. The years of over capacity on the course and not taking care of the greens have really beat them up. They are better than last year. Last year the root system was really bad. Fixing a ball mark was nearly impossible because you could easily tear the grass up. Now the roots are much stronger. Still the course is overplayed and no one fixes ball marks, and this dry spring so far has already browned them out a bit. Hopefully this recent rain will help them out. They need some TLC right now.

During one of the last rounds I played last fall I drove up to my ball in the fairway and stood next to my cart while the away people in my group hit.  I heard the hissing of a ball flying at or near me so I kinda twitched and ducked because I didn't know where it was coming from and the thing bounced off my cart.  Not a word from the clown who hit it, which was on a short 130 yard par 3 parallel to the hole I was on.  Some douches don't say anything and some overreact, all I know is stand by your cart or a tree if possible.

I think I'm going to patent a hard hat/golf hat. :smartass:

I think you did well to say sorry and than just let them go.

Probably the guy hit a bad tee shot and he blamed you for that.

I get that logic. When I hear "FORE", I usually either find the nearest tree to hid behind. Or I will turn around and cover my head. If it it hits me it hits me. Worse thing I could do is look up and get whacked upside the head by a golf ball. 

 

I guess if a person is stupid enough to just aimlessly run around, then he deserves to get hit.  When I hear "Fore!", I duck and cover, nothing more - if the ball is going to hit me then at least it won't be a big deal.  Most relatively experienced players would do the same.  The only time I'll move is if I'm very close to a tree that I can hide behind.
