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. :)
