Why can I not hit golf balls in a park, especially if no one is there?
Golf balls left behind in the grass can easily be picked up by the large mowers used by City maintenance crews and become dangerous high speed projectiles that may cause serious damage or injury.

When a person is hitting a golf ball, the ball travels over a great deal of space and anyone who happens to be within that space is at danger of being hit. Even the most skilled golfers will occasionally hit an errant shot and that can be very dangerous to anyone in that path. If people feel unsafe in a park because a golfer is trying to play there, the park is less likely to be used for its intended purpose.
