I would definitely go with some sort of fence...some of the courses I play on around here have OB stakes along the yard lines of those houses that surround the playing area. I have found that most of the residents don't have an issue with you retrieving your ball from their yard then taking it back onto a playable area of the course. And while most folks are smart enough to not play out of people's yards, there are some who are not...the fence should take care of that.

A lot of it will depend on the clientele of the course. If it is a upscale course, most people won't play out of your yard, but there will always be one or two offenders. If you are opposed to the fence, you could start out without one, then if it becomes an issue, then install one...

Or you could do like the owners of one house on a course that I occasionally play at...put a big, mean looking dog on a tether in your yard...I notice that yard always has balls in the back yard. :-) :-) :-)
