Columbia's nearly 90 miles of meandering pathways -- car-free zones that connect its neighborhoods to schools, pools and village shopping centers -- are viewed as an inalienable right in the planned community. But if residents stroll in the neighborhood north of Hobbit's Glen Golf Club -- where pathways exist only on the golf course -- they risk getting hit in the head with a golf ball. Neighborhood resident Delana Stanfield is leading an effort to persuade the Columbia Association to construct pathways for nongolfers in the design of the course, which is to undergo major reconstruction this month.
