Douglaston is under siege by a Parks Department owned golf course:
Several irate Queens families are taking a swing at a city-owned golf course, saying wayward balls are rocketing into their windows, houses and cars, causing thousands of dollars in property damage and keeping them prisoners in their own homes.
GOLF NEIGHBORS TEE OFF ON CITY
Parks Department spokesman Warner Johnston said the city's concession agreement requires Douglaston Golf LLC to employ "reasonable preventative" measures and that the city is looking into options.
Douglaston Park neighbors teed off about golf course
The Hristopouloses and their neighbors have replaced car windshields, sunroofs, windows and doors to their home, glass tables in their back yard. Hristopoulos estimated that recent damage cost easily more than $7,000, and he does not even count the dents in his car anymore. The brick facade of his house is chipped. But the Hristopouloses worry more for their safety - their 12-year-old son was hit in the leg last summer while he played soccer in their yard.
