Responsibility For Water Line Damage

The water meter for my home in on a neighbor's property. My property is separated from that neighbor's property by a golf cart path. The land the cart path is on is owned by a golf course. The golf course does not maintain the path very well and erosion has caused my water line pipe to appear. In addition to the daily traffic of golf carts, heavy maintenance equipment use the path. I am concerned that the PVC water pipe line will eventually be damaged by the activity on the cart path. The water company has advised me that I am responsible for any repairs to the line between the meter and my house. If there is damage to the pipe, can the golf course be held responsible for the damage and repair?
