Broken Windows

Living directly next to any golf course, brings with it the inherent problem of broken windows due to errant golf shots. Here are some suggestions to follow if you suffer a broken window.

1.    If you are home when a golf ball breaks a window, call the Watters Creek Pro Shop immediately at 214-509-4653 and ask for Jeff Holt, General Manager, or for the manager on duty. Either Watters Creek person will offer their assistance in tracking down the golfer who hit the shot based on the information you can provide such as the number on the side of the golf cart(s), color of the golfer’s shirts, and the time the incident happened at your home. No guarantees that the golfer will pay up, but payment for the broken window by the golfer happens more often than not.

2.  If you are not at home, then please follow up by sending an email to Jeff Holt with a report of the incident to jholt@cityofallen.org . Neither the City of Allen nor the golf course are legally liable to pay for your broken window, but the data provided will help to build a case for future safety enhancements to be implemented by the ownership of the course.

3.  Keep a file of your expenses in replacing broken windows as this information directly led the golf course to extensively reroute the course for the homeowners on Water Oak Drive.
