Mike Sweet, General Manager of Corning (N.Y.) Country Club came to work Monday to find this: debris everywhere, landscape torn up and golf carts in bunkers and in the woods. Sweet says he quickly learned it wasn’t the work of Sunday night’s storm but vandals who hotwired about a dozen carts and took them for a damaging ride.
Sweet says the so-called derby caused more than a $100,000 in damage that upset club members and workers.
The damage has shut down nine holes at the Club. The closure is obviously affecting play, starting with a tournament for volunteers of the LPGA Corning Classic.
New York State Police have started investigating whose fault the vandalism actually was and CCC staff has started putting back together the club.
