Another golf course has been targeted amid a spate of vandalism affecting clubs across the UK.

Staff arrived at Shotts Golf Club on Wednesday morning to find the 15th fairway wrecked by tyre tracks.

“Some clever individual has mistaken the 15th fairway for a turning circle,” club officials wrote on Twitter, confirming they were checking CCTV footage in a bid to identify the culprits.

Golfers were quick to react, branding the incident “unbelievable” and calling for those responsible to be made to pay for the repairs.

It is the latest in a growing list of attacks on clubs across the country.

Dundee’s Caird Park Golf Club has also seen repeated incidents in recent weeks and was forced to close when £50,000 of machinery was stolen and driven across the course.

Other venues have been forced to close public access following reports of anti-social behaviour, often during hours of darkness when clubs are unmanned.
