The New Hampshire Supreme Court affirmed the dismissal of a negligence action against a golf course brought by a golfer who had been seriously injured when a ball he hit struck a yardage marker approximately 17-20 yards in front of him. The ball came back at him and hit him in the eye.
The court concluded that obstacles and "errant balls" are a risk that a golfer assumes when playing a round. (Mike Frisch)
