As someone that runs a business thatís open 365 days a year, management always has a dinner set up for our employees working on Xmas. One particular location I managed 12-13 years ago, I was walking back to put the finishing touches on it and a customer had wandered back into that area and was helping himself to a plate. This is clearly an employees only area and it wasnít like it was an employees spouse. When I asked him what the hell he was doing he sheepishly said ďI thought it was out there for usĒ. Ever since then I always set it up in an area that theyíd have to get really lost to even find:)
One thing that hasnít been discussed or talked about is clean up of left over balls on the range. Whatís the labor burden? If itís my club even though labor is cheap ie high school kids the labor burden can be high. If there is a substantial number of left over balls on the range. The cart boys are going to go hit everyone down range. While they are doing this dirty carts are piling up, fresh ones are running out, oh and wait, and range balls are needing to be picked. How long would it take to move everything off the hittting , move the golfers off the range then run over it with the range picker. People hitting left over golf balls off the range are actually free labor. I worked at a course for years, and never heard a pro complain about this. The pros complained about not having enough carts, or bagged balls to sale.
The whole scum bag, trespassing thing is bs. Also, how do you trespass in a public place? Iíve never understood that. Iím welcome to come to your establishment, but if I donít like you I will have you arrested for trespassing. Sounds like a puss move by a ahole to me.

There are signs on neighborhood golf courses that says you can't walk/bike/jog/roller blade/etc on golf holes, how is that different then just rolling up to the range without getting permission or paying to use the facilities. I understand there are courses that couldn't care less about people hitting the balls and if you have permission go ahead but if I rolled up to a course without paying and just went to hit balls I would be looking over my shoulder the whole time.
I could drive in Bandon Dunes golf resort and go to the practice area and hit all the balls I can hit, there is no security on that. I have no intention of paying a cent to the course, is that right? I personally would feel like a scumbag doing it. But then again now I am an ahole with a bad heart so what do I know.
