WEST BABYLON, NY (WCBS 880) – Residents on Monsey Road in West Babylon have had enough with the golf course at the end of their block.

Joseph Romano said for the past five years, the Suffolk County-owned golf course has been nothing but trouble.

The windows of his home have been smashed and the siding ruined because of flying golf balls.

In one case, a neighbor was hit on the wrist.

“My daughter’s four now. She wants to run outside, and she wants to play in front of my house,” Romano said. “I can’t have her running around without a helmet and shoulder pads all the time because we’re worried that she’s going to get hit.”

The county says they put up additional netting around the course to prevent further damage to homes.
