Sad Day at Civitan

When WNMLF golfers arrived at our home course this morning, we were greeted by a sad sight.

Last night, someone (or likely someones-plural) took shovels and tore up 5 of our beautiful greens. They also hacked down part of a tree and tried to “plant it” in the torn-up mess of the green on hole #1.

It was sputtering a few drops of rain and cloudy this morning after last night’s rain, and it seemed as if our beloved golf course was crying about this senseless vandalism.

We went out to play the 4 holes that were untouched, and noted the hard work of the grounds crew as they worked salvage what they could of their carefully tended grass.

By the time we left, they had already repaired and reopened hole #8—a minor miracle considering the damage to the course.

We salute our wonderful groundskeepers Gilbert and Marty and thank them for all their hard work. We appreciate them in spite of the destruction wreaked by some of the more pitiful members of our human species.

Shame on those vandals. Shame on them.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree, Vicki. Later that day I returned to play all nine holes with Katie and all the greens were put back together beautifully. It's amazing what the grounds crew can do! I appreciate all their hard work despite the dastardly deeds of the vandals.
