Juveniles suspected of damaging golf course greens

LOCKPORT –The owner of the Gothic Hill golf course said juvenile joyriding on a golf cart caused $3,000 in damages to the greens over the weekend.

The owner told Niagara County sheriff’s deputies at 7:15 p.m. Saturday that he found tire marks and grass removed from someone doing doughnuts around the green at 5477 Niagara St.

He said he found two males driving the cart down the hill of the golf course and were able to get them to return the cart. The two had been attending an event at the golf course and said they saw others riding the carts so they thought it was OK.

The owner and deputies were unable to locate anyone who had seen the two cause the damage and no one has been charged as of Wednesday. The two suspected males were asked to leave the golf course and told not to return.
