Montrose Golf Links has suffered £1,000 worth of damage caused by a vehicle driving over the Medal Course.

The “significant” damage was done to the fourth green on the Medal Course by a vehicle’s.

Tyre tracks were found on the green near to the greenkeepers’ sheds, and they continued towards the fourth Medal green.

The vandalism occurred some time between 2.30 p.m. on Monday, December 22 and 7 a.m. the following day.

Claire Penman, company secretary of Montrose Golf Links, said: “It looks as though a four-by-four has driven over the temporary winter third green and over the fourth green and then they tried to drive over the fifth, but couldn’t get over the hill.

“Most of the damage was to the fourth green, which has cost £1,000.

“We have taken turf from the public green to patch the fourth and it was repaired a day or two after it was damaged.”

Anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen or heard a vehicle driving on the course, should contact Police Scotland on 101.
