Allow me to put up a net to protect my children from golf balls.

My children are not safe to play in their own backyard. Since moving into my home less than a year ago, we've had four broken windows, over 400 golf balls in our yard, our car windshield shattered, a dent on the side of our car, and a neighbor was even hit by a ball after it bounced off their house. At times the balls hit so hard that they become buried in the ground. If one of my children was hit by a ball, they could become severely injured or even die. I need to be able to protect them. The HOA is not allowing us to put up a net (at our own expense) to protect them.

      I am signing this petition because my husband was recently struck in the head by a golf ball in our backyard. He had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital where he received staples in his head. A couple more inches down and it would have hit his temple. Like others, I do not even want to let my child play in the backyard. I hate the fact that we can't use our backyard because I am terrified of the golf balls. The HOA definitely needs to revise this rule!! I want a net!!

      I am a resident located on the golf course and feel that my children, as well as all of the children in this community, are not safe due to the reckless golfing, countless broken windows from golf balls and attempts to retrieve golf balls on my property from rude golfers. At this time the HOA nor the golf course are willing to put our childrens safety as priority! We need to protect the people of this community or else good families will locate elsewhere!!

      We used to live in Chapman Heights, but never on the golf course. If we had, I would be doing the same thing as Kim. :)

      We are not moving to Chapman Heights for this reason. The HOA controls everything and is so perticular it is not fun or convenient to live there not to mention the countless broken windows etc... from the golf balls. My Brother in Law is looking to buy from out of state and we specifically told him to avoid Chapman Heights.

      Because my precious grandchildren live there and I do fear for their safety.
