There are plenty of fences of all kinds here in STJ. If you are on a golf course, you need a gate to allow golfers to retrieve their balls.

Fence or no fence you will find plenty of golf balls on your property if you live on the fairway as I do. That's why I built a brick house.

It depends on what side of the fairway you are on and how far down. I only have the occasional golf ball because I am 300+ yards off the white tee and on the left side. Most of the righties slice to the right side.

I do know that fences have to be screened from the opposite with shrubs according to ACA. If you email or call the POA (see website St. James Plantation Property Owners' Association "contact us" link_ they can provide you with the current architectural standards document. I have a hard copy somewhere given to me by our real estate guy, so can't email it.

FWIW I always request and review any docs such as covenants or architectural standards that may affect my property before I buy.

Most of the righties slice to the right side." Sorry Pony but that's the same reasoning I used when I built on the left side of the 4th fairway of players club. One year I donated 20 dozen balls to the service club flea market, so much for logic...

Uh twenty dozen is 240 balls. Today we were having lunch at the kitchen table when my wife spotted a ball in the back yard. She went out to retrieve it and found two more. Our back yard is parallel to the forward tees (usually used by lady golfers) and we found noodle and yellow golf balls in our yard (typically these are lady golfer's balls.) I have also found golf balls in my front yard which means the ball sailed over my neighbor's roof and landed in my yard. I love living on the golf course but you have to be mindful of incoming missiles. By the way I will be posting the November issue of Cat-Tales tomorrow. It contains our tribute to twenty years of Cat-Tales. It will also be the first issue in 18 months without a contribution from me. bill

You are right near the ladies tee box. We are quite a way from the ladies tees. If a person from those tees sliced, it would end up in the pond. We get a stray ball here and there, but 20 dozen ... wow!
