I don't know how I have yet to do this. Our hole 2 fairway is right of the parking lot, and just barely. I sometimes have a tendency to slice one left and it's always just short of the parking lot, but barely.

 

How mad was the wiener of the vehicle?

I've he several roofs and window. Broke 2 for the pass 3 years I knocked on the backyard and gave them my info, paid for the damage, though legally im not responsible but it's the right thing to do. I was told by one, that it was their 3 replacement and I was the first to pay.

 

The next time I saw them, the lady walked down the fairway and brought me a lemonade. That was nice.

Not mad, she said things happen.. But I was pissed... the worst part, it was a par 3 and I missed the green by only 15 feet.. caught the cart path and bounce over the edge of a maintenance shed.

Never hit a car but, I have been hit by a sliced drive while driving my car down the road near by.  Put a nice dent in my hood and scared the crap out of me.

There's a fairly busy road that runs down alongside the 18th fairway at a course I play. Close to the course, too. There's at least someone in each group who sends a power slice screaming towards the street. When this happens, the tee box gets eerily quiet, everyone listening for the inevitable. At this same course, a lady got hit in her yard when she was weeding. She sued. Kind of a sad golf course...

I've never hit one, came close a close of times. My buddy has a nickname of beamer. That BMW never saw what hit him. I watched it as he hit his tee shot. A low draw that should have faded for the hole. About 100 yds out the ball and car seemed to go into slow mo speed. Nothing we could do but watch. Couple seconds later, wham, right on that beamers butt in flight mind you. It was like one of those guided missiles you see on TV. Since that guy has been called beamer lol

Played a course that had the inbound road maybe 10' from OB stakes. I hit a low screaming hook into the left headlight. In the bar, big joke "you shot lights out!".

Never hit a car, yet. We have road that runs beside the fouth hole, one of our group hit a nice high hook that bounced on the road and over a semi trailer. That's as close I've seen, but it's gonna happen one day.

We have a road directly adjacent to the fairway on 17. I sliced one that dropped about 20 yards in front of a police car doing about 35. The ball must have bounced 20' up and continued to the other side of the street. Police car never stopped.

I've never hit a car, but I have hit the roof of a house and had it bounce back into play!!  At my club I used to park in one area of the lot until I was loading up one day and a ball came from the fairway on #2, bounced off the asphalt over my car and hit a truck.  I don't park there anymore.  It's actually not very close to the green, but a pulled, bladed shot will get there.  The kid that hit it there didn't come to get his ball and didn't apologize.  His dad said he was a beginner and basically chewed us out for even thinking his kid should apologize!  So much for teaching golf etiquette.

Nope, but a couple weeks ago I gave it a valiant effort, sliced a drive out into the street with a pack of cars coming but I missed

Was not with a golf ball but I did hit a SEPTA bus in college with a home run in intermural softball. The year after I graduated they made anyone hitting left handed use a 28" bat.

The Muni that I grew up at has multiple boundary holes that run along a street. The 8th hole runs along a busy 4 lane road on the right with a stoplight near the green. This is one of several holes that is notorious for staying frozen after most of the course has thawed, and munis being munis, they let us go as soon as the first green is soft enough to play. With the street right, the common miss is left off the tee, and one frosty morning a playing partner was over there. That left him a 75 yarder that had to go over a tree with a back right flag that day. He launched it up in the air, it landed near the flag, and rifled out in the middle of the street like it was shot from a gun. Straight at a police car idling at the light. The ball slammed into the driver's door and the cop stared around wildly before sinking down in his seat, turning on his lights and sirens and getting the hell out of there. Poor guy thought he was in danger from something worse than a golf ball. The guy who hit the ball just stood there, white faced and jaw agape, while we literally rolled around on the ground howling with laughter. After we all got it together the guilty party said "I think I'll just take an 'X' on this one", which set us off once again.

Wow, this comes up and last night when I was leaving the base, driving right along the golf course. I see this group on the tee box and the guy standing over his ball ready to hit. So as I drive along I am kinda watching the fairway to see where his ball goes. Then, it hits the road a few feet from my drivers door and bounces over the hood past the front of my car. I slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting it.  I bet the guy bout crapped himself for a second.  Anyway, it missed me so I hit the gas and kept going. It was close though.

I've been close to hitting a vehicle and if the ball were a hand grenade it would have tore his arse up however no direct hits.

 

 

There was a guy playing a golf course adjacent to the interstate and he hooked one over the fence and the ball bounced down the road hitting a car which caused the driver to run off the road and crash.  A cop roared up to the golf club, found the guilty golfer and asked him if he realized he caused an accident and what did he plan on doing about it.  The golfer thought about it for a couple of minutes and replied,  I'll roll the right hand more on top of the club and fix that nasty hook....  jk ;)
