Golf Club And Neighbor Settle Wayward Ball Dispute

By: Rob Harris

We have been tracking since early this year the dispute between Jerzy Wisniewski and Pennsylvania’s Morgan Hill Golf Course, as they have battled in court over the course’s liability for golf balls that allegedly find their way into Mr. Wisniewski’s yard.

In March, the court held the course in contempt for failing to put into operation a camera that the court had ordered be used to monitor tee shots hit on the course’s 13th hole.

Now, however, the holiday season–together with an impending trial date–has brought with it the sentiments necessary for the parties to resolve their dispute. As reported, the club has agreed to install netting to protect the Wisniewski homestead. If that remedy proves ineffective, the club will permanently move the 13th hole tees sufficiently far upward to take the Wisniewski property out of play, resulting in the par 5 13th becoming a par 4.
