The cost to repair damages to the Osoyoos (B.C.) Golf Club are expected to be significant following an act of vandalism last weekend.

Locks were cut at the property which allowed trucks to enter and carve up fairways. A member of the club witnessed the act, reporting to police that a white truck and a black truck were involved.

Conditions at the golf course are soft at this time of year, and the vandals caused extensive damage by driving “donuts.”

The club’s general manager said the timing of the vandalism has coincided with efforts to have the course ready for an early March opening.
