The cost of the latest damage caused at Indian Lakes GC, after a truck was driven across greens and fairways, leaving deep ruts, was estimated at $20,000. The previous incident resulted in a glass door of the clubhouse being shattered and a golf cart being driven into a water hazard.
Boise, Idaho’s KVTB reported that after vandals caused damage to Indian Lakes Golf Club on Sunday night, August 31, the club was hit by another incident two nights later. It was not clear if both incidents were caused by the same perpetrators.
According to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office, in the second incident the culprit(s) drove a truck across several greens and fairways at about 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 2, leaving behind deep ruts. The driver also tore through the club’s sand volleyball court, tearing down the net and knocking down a pole.
The truck was believed to have entered the course from a corner adjoining the property. By the time deputies arrived, the truck was gone, KVTB reported.
The owner of Indian Lakes estimated the cost of repairing the turf after the vandals’ joyride at $20,000, KVTB reported.
The latest offense came just days after vandals shattered a glass door to the clubhouse, stole beer from inside, and drove a golf cart into a water hazard. Damages from that incident were estimated at $4,000.
