Q: Someone hit a golf ball into the ruff (a hillside). The grass was too long and the golfer didn’t see a hole, slipped, fell and broke his ankle. Is the golf course liable?

A: Normally a golfer assumes the risk and the golf course user
agreements also make that clear. But if the facts justify it, you can try to argue negligence or unreasonable maintenance and hold them liable.
