The person who hit the ball, and perhaps the course if they have not taken adequate precaution to prevent the ball from exiting their facilities onto a public road.

I disagree, when you are driving by a golf course, public or private you as the driver are taking a known risk. There is an inherent risk of this occurring. "Flying objects" such as golf balls are covered under the comprehensive portion of the auto policy. There is no liability issues here. i disagree, the person how hit the ball is at fault

In principle, the player who hit the ball is liable. Good luck finding him. I always use an unmarked ball when playing a course with a road on the slice side of the fairway. If I was ever to hear the tinkle of glass and the squeal of tires after one of my patented mega-bananas I would disappear into a patch of trees at least two holes away.

It is really nobodys fault unfortunately you cant really avoid it so i suggest just look out for the balls and try to stay away. :)

You will be, of course. You were driving and are fully responsible for anything that the vehicle does.

If a person I hired is mowing my yard and the mower hits a rock that breaks a glass in my storm door is he liable?

Of course, as long as it doesn't obstruct your vision or distract your attention while you're driving. (Be aware that the standards and definition of what does that are different in various places.)

If she was driving your car, notify your agent. If it was her mom's car, then her insurance is responsible, and, of course, if your daughter was driving her own vehicle, she would have her own insurance.
