KH,

Unfortunately, the homeowner's association requires that the fence (iron) be no taller than 4 feet.

If your fence is only 2 ft. high or just a short hedge, I would say that 95% of the golfers out there will not cross or step over it to retrieve a ball. They may reach in with a club or ball retriever and they should never hit out of your yard, fence or no.

My guess is that with a following wind, your less than avg. golfers not knowing their distances, wind effect, etc. will often tend to overshoot their target. Gusting winds will even fool the better golfers. With the 50 yds or better from edge of green and not in line with fairway (guessing again) you should be relatively safe.

HaveaGreatDay, L2J
