Police are looking for the drivers of two ATVs who did considerable damage to two holes on Winged Foot’s famed East course.
According to local reports, a club member and caddie witnessed two ATVs enter the property and destroy sections of the fifth hole and No. 6 green – damage that is expected to cost the club tens of thousands of dollars. The fifth hole will be closed the rest of the season as the maintenance crew addresses the issues.
Those with information about the vandalism at Winged Foot – which most recently hosted the 2006 U.S. Open – are encouraged to contact the Mamaroneck Police Department. It should be noted that Phil Mickelson and Colin Montgomerie are not considered suspects.
