Pinehurst Police Department officials are investigating after someone drove onto two of the golf courses overnight causing extensive damage on two holes on two different courses located off of Morganton Road.
On Course #1 a vehicle drove across the green and down the middle of the fairway on the 17th hole causing moderate damage.
Across Morganton Road on Course #4 the damage done was much more extensive as the vehicle not only drove on the green and fairway of the 17th hole, but cut circles digging up grass and dirt in the process.
The two holes affected are on opposite sides of Morganton Road a short distance from NC Highway 5.
Early estimates this morning placed the cost of the damage done at approximately $20,000.00 according to Pinehurst police officials.
A pickup truck was captured on a nearby black and white security camera that is believed to be related to this incident giving authorities a starting point to find the people responsible.
Authorities are seeking information on the person or persons responsible for this crime. If you have any information please contact the Pinehurst Police Department at 910-295-3141
