I sued the golf course after my home was bombed by hundreds of balls for four years

A COUPLE have successfully sued a golf course after their dream home was bombed by hundreds of balls for four years.

Erik and Athina Tenczar bought their home in Kingston, Massachusetts four years ago for $750,000 and thought it would be a great place to raise their three children.

But in that time, they’ve collected nearly 700 balls, suffered broken windows, dented siding and golf balls from the neighboring golf course that turned their family home into a “nightmare.”

It got so bad that they even built a partition to protect a small part of their deck from flying objects.

The couple decided to take legal action and sued their neighbors at the Indian Pond Country Club for trespassing over the constant bombing, reports The Boston Globe.

In December, after a six-day trial, a jury in Plymouth Superior Court awarded the Tenczars a substantial $3.5 million in compensatory damages and emotional and spiritual suffering.

That premium totals $4.9 million when interest is included.

“We’re always nervous,” Erik Tenczar, 43, told the newspaper. “It took a toll on us emotionally.”

At one point, the window above the playroom was smashed, spraying broken glass over the toys.

A deck railing had recently been knocked out.

“Honestly, if you have all these houses on one course, I assumed it was safe,” said Athina Tenczar, 36.

The family tried calling the country club but said they received little response.

They also called the police, but the family were told there was little law enforcement could do other than call the club as well.

So the family hired a lawyer and sued.

“They bought what they thought was their dream home,” the Tenczars’ attorney Bob Galvin told the newspaper. “And it became a nightmare for her.”

Country club attorney John Flemming told the newspaper the course’s owners took action by consulting an architect to find a solution.

He denied that the golf course was not responding to the Tenczars, the report said.

The country club has since repaired the course’s 15th tee, and the Tenczars haven’t seen a golf ball on their property in months.

However, the country club’s attorneys plan to appeal, according to the Globe.

“In my opinion, the $3.5 million judgment for alleged emotional distress on legal grounds is against the weight of the evidence,” Flemming said.
