Vandals struck Pine Lakes Country Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. twice in a three-day period in March, according to police reports.
First, an unknown number of suspects took the hole flags on Nos. 10, 12, 16 and 17, and also stole metal water hole covers from holes 12 and 13. Hazard stakes, sand rakes, tee markers and a garbage can were thrown into a pond between holes 12 and 13. According to a report in Myrtle Beach Sun News, the suspects also wrote messages in the sand traps between holes 12 and 13.
Then, just hours before the course’s scheduled reopening to public play after a two-year renovation project, a small section of the fairway near the No. 5 green was damaged when someone drove a truck on to the course. Maintenance workers were able to repair the damage, but tire marks were still visible. Windows in a men’s bathroom near the fourth hole were also broken out.
