These Divots Are No Laughing Matter

On June 15, 2011 Overland Park Police Officers responded to a vandalism call at Westlinks Golf Course that went far beyond typical adolescent high jinks.

The damage that occurred between 9 pm June 14 and 7:30 am June 15 on the green of the 8th hole and the 9th hole tee box constitutes a serious property crime. Repairs are estimated at $2500.

The vandalism consists of several areas that appear to have been dug up by a shovel and another deep hole approximately 4' X 4'.” A 20-year employee of the course said it was the worst case of vandalism he has ever seen.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Tips Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
