A late night joyride at a golf course where buggies were driven on greens, through bunkers and into a dam has caused an estimated $100,000 worth ofThe Dam damage. A group of vandals broke into the Rossdale Golf Club in the early hours of yesterday morning and wreaked havoc on the course.

Nine golf buggies were taken and driven over the greens, destroying the buggies and damaging flags, golf clubs, and one bunker.

Rossdale Golf Club general manager Adrian Booth said the vandalism looked premeditated.
"They've jimmied up the door and decided to pull out the carts and go for a bit of a joyride," he said. "It looks like they've smashed most of the carts. There's only one of them that's still in one piece." One of the buggies landed in a dam, and another was later located in nearby parklands.

A greenskeeper called police when he arrived at the course in the early morning and saw three buggies being driven around. The attack is the second time the club has had its buggies taken for a joyride. "I can't understand why you would even bother to do dodgem cars with golf carts, it seems pretty senseless to me," Mr Booth said.

A standard golf cart can reach speeds of about 10km/h. To view the video click here
