Slicing On Six Presents Dicey Problem

by | Jul 9, 2005

I was surprised to see a local news story today on our neighbors down the street.


Bonnie Rogers’ home on the sixth fairway of Old Carolina Golf Course has been pelted nearly a thousand of times. She has 715 golf balls collected from her yard to prove it. The Rogers have lost three windows and now have twenty odd pockmarks in their vinyl siding. According to the report, not one golfer has stepped forward to offer apologies, to say nothing of compensation. Golf club general manager, Scott Adams, said it is the golfer’s responsibility when they damage property, but he admits few are prepared to do the right thing. Rogers says they’d sell their two sixth fairway homes, but rightly asks, “Who would buy them?”
