Vandals target golf greens

Salmon Arm Golf Club and the Salmon Arm RCMP are trying to track down a vandal or vandals who sneaked onto the course during the night between April 27 and 29, and put a herbicide on some of the greens.

Head pro Doug Herron says the playability of the greens targeted was not affected, but they are discoloured.

Roundup is the suspected pesticide.

The vandals left footprints as well as indications where they entered the course, so all evidence has been passed along to RCMP.

Herron believes it was not a random act.

He asks that anyone who may have information regarding the crime contact him at 250-832-3667, or call the RCMP.

“It’s hard for reasonable people to understand vandalism,” he says.
