I don't live on a golf course, but I live fairly close to a bunch of different ones. Most of those courses are losey though, some are those stupid 9-hole par 3 courses that all these kids play at and adults that can't golf.
I live across the road from arguably the best club in the city, but I only play there a couple of times a year (too expensive). When they first put the course in, I got tons of golf balls - usually 2 pailfuls each season. I guess people are getting better, because I only find a few a season now. I do wonder though how in the heck they manage to hit a ball that far off target because I'm right by a tee for one hole and a green for the other, so they have to hit the ball hard enough somewhere to get off the course, through some bushes, across the road and then onto my lawn, which is quite a shot
