If you live on or near a golf course, you may worry about having to replace your windows more frequently than you’d like. Sure, you get a great view and the convenience of riding a golf cart to your morning tee time, but one of the disadvantages of having your home on the links is that stray balls may hit your windows leaving them damaged and broken. Even though golf courses with nearby residences are designed to minimize this risk, it’s still something to think about so that you can relax and enjoy your home and its proximity to the course.
This article lists 3 types of window protection you can use:
1. Window film
This is quite expensive and is often used by security agencies. It provides a protective layer (some types are even advertised as being bullet proof) to your windows.
Stray balls are caught in a large net placed on your property to keep your windows safe. However, this can feel bulky and detract from your home’s design or architecture
3. Awning and shutter
These can be installed outside your windows to protect them. They can be opened for viewing the outdoors and to let natural light in and then closed when golfers are playing the course.
