    Golf Course Accident: A golf course grounds crew erected a rope, stretched between steel bars driven deep into the ground to keep golfers from driving their carts across a newly seeded fairway.

Instead, the grounds crew, in the words of a witness, put the barrier up “like they were erecting a fence to keep cows in.” A golfer drove his golf cart into the rope without seeing it. He was “clotheslined,” causing massive neck injury.
