The Niceville Police Department said the woman called last Friday and said the ball struck her while she was jumping on a trampoline in her yard, which borders the Elgin Golf Course, the Fort Walton Beach Northwest Florida Daily News reported Wednesday.
The woman told police an African-American man who appeared to be in his mid-30s claimed the ball and told her "he was not a golfer." The caller said the man apologized but refused to give his name.
The caller said there have been "ongoing problems" with the golf course.
Police said the woman was advised the incident was not a criminal matter and officers suggested she contact the pro shop at the golf course.
