Complaint / review text:
Hard hats are a necessity for myself and other homeowners who live adjacent to the Whisper Creek Golf Course in Sun City. Every time I, my wife, my sons, or my grandchildren step into my back yard or sit on my patio when there are golfers present on the course, their safety is in jeopardy. My home has been hit twenty-nine times over the four years that I have lived in Sun City. All of those hits have caused property damage.
Further, my neighbors and I have been narrowly missed with errant balls, any of which could have caused significant injury. This is a real danger, as evidenced by what happened to the man riding in his car on Algonquin Road when an errant ball from a driving range went through his sun roof and caused permanent brain injury.
What has been Pulte/Del Webb's (the builder and owner of the course) response to the safety concerns? Our neighborhood committee has met with the managers of the development and golf course several times with no resolution, other than cosmetic changes which have not addressed these significant safety issues. I suppose someone has to lose an eye, suffer permanent injury, or even worse be killed by a golf ball for these people to recognize the danger. I paid a significant premium for a golf course lot which now I can only approach with fear and trepidation. Is this the atmosphere of "peace, comfort, and friendship" that was promised in the sales brochure?
