Golf Club suffers criminal damage

Joyriders attack the fairway at an East Yorkshire golf course.

Thousands of pounds worth of damage has been caused to one of the fairways at Beverley Golf Club by joyriders.

A vehicle was driven over the Westwood at night earlier this week and the damaged was reported by one of the greenkeepers.

Andrew Webster of the Golf Club says: "They've driven in an old pond hole in front of the seventh green and used it like a mini wall of death. What's really soul-destroying is that they've gone down the seventh fairway. We've only got three greenkeepers to keep the course in tip-top condition, and they've just put tyre ruts and been skidding along."

The Club is considering the options to prevent this happening, including bollards.
