Default It's a Golf Course ... Not a Park

We live on the 6th hole of the Longleaf executive golf course and we've been noticing lots of folks using the 5th and 6th holes as their personal fitness trail .Bikes, roller blades, runners ,dog walkers you name it they're doing it after the golfers have gone home. Why is this necessary . There are so many trails down here I don't see the need to treat the golf course like this. Al'so after dark we've been seeing people taking their golf carts on a tour disrupting the privacy I bought when I built my house. I'm thinking of walking around my lanai naked after dark that should keep them away

When you bought on a golf course you gave up your privacy along with peace and quiet, I lived on one for 13 years and never again. I now live on a pond, quiet, peaceful, and private.

Unless they are very noisy do not see what the big deal is

I don't mind golfers during operating hours but after hours people are trespassing to disrupt my privacy

Without people on the course I could walk around naked in my backyard if I wanted to. If I had a pool I could skinny dip. Not saying I would but my privacy has been compromised

You seem to have a fetish about walking around naked. Your next door neighbor might not like having to see you. Oh well, life goes on.

No just using it as an example. My neighbors can't see my backyard or into my lanai.

What a great idea, after hours, use the golf courses for your personal enjoyment. You pay for it, so if it rings your bell, use it. Great place for big dogs to stretch their legs.

Actually, the golf courses are private property which is why you aren’t allowed to be on them or play golf after hours (although many do). I worked at a golf course here and that’s how I know the rule. Don’t shoot the messenger.

It is a golf course and not a playground. It is also not permitted. They need to be thrown off.

Great idea using the golf course path after hours. Will start using them. If you want to walk around naked we won't look.

Yesterday, there were kids fishing on one of the executive courses. The Ambassador told them it was private property and told them they had to leave. They said that another ambassador told them they could stay. This Ambassador told them to talk to the pro, but today they were to get off the property.
