AN Easter Ross golf course suffered damage this week after motorbikes forced their way on to the greens.


Police believe scrambler or quad bikes are responsible for the vandalism at Tain Golf Club.

The damage, which happened between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, included a flattened section of fencing and tyre tracks on three greens.

Local police are now appealing for information regarding the incident at the club off Chapel Road which happened between 7pm on Tuesday, September 5 and 7.30am on Wednesday, September 6.

Entry appears to have been forced to the course after an area of fencing at the ninth green was damaged.

The vehicles were then driven on the course which left visible tyre tracks on the fourth, ninth and fourteenth greens.

Constable Kelly Munro said: “This was a deliberate act which appears to have been caused by vehicles similar to a motorcycle, a scrambler style bike or possibly quad bikes.

“Anyone who saw any people or vehicles acting suspiciously in the area at the time are asked to make contact as soon as possible.

“You can call 101, quoting reference NE12944/17, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to pass information anonymously.”
