Could the Golf Course Be Liable if Golf Netting is Not Replaced?

Posted by

Golf courses and driving range all over the Boston area are in need of replacement netting, poles and lighting. Spring is here, and the weather is finely nice enough that golfers can head outside and enjoy the green and the driving range.
Protect your business, abutting property and your guests with replacement golf course netting, poles and lighting.

According to an attorney who was quoted on CBS:

“If you hit a ball and that ball happens to head off and hurt somebody, you are responsible and you have a responsibility to step up,” said attorney Eric Ratinoff.

Ratinoff says while a golfer may be to blame, he doesn’t think that necessarily releases the golf course of all responsibility.

“If the golf course hasn’t at least taken reasonable measures to make sure the golf ball is either stopped with netting, whether it’s high enough or the netting is appropriate enough for the circumstances, then the golf course could be liable too,” said Ratinoff.
