Motorbike vandals hit Notts. Golf Club again
"Mindless" motorcyclists have damaged one of Nottinghamshire's most famous golf courses for the second time in two months.
It is believed the bikes were driven onto land at Notts. Golf Club, also known as Hollinwell, on Sunday.
Staff have called for those responsible to show more "respect" to the course, which is one of the top 100 in England.
It follows land being churned up on one of the course's greens - which will cost "tens of thousands" to repair.
Martyn Bonner, secretary manager of the club, said he felt "anger" when he heard about the "ugly scars" that had been made on the 10th fairway and bunkers, as well as neighbouring land.
"It's just frustrating they [motorcyclists] can't keep off our property," he said.
Mr Bonner said the club had yet to recover from the damage caused to land near the 12th green in January.
The two vandalised areas of the course will not fully recover until the summer, it is estimated.
"We could be looking at beyond £10,000 for what was two minutes of pleasure for some individuals," Mr Bonner said.
"They should have a bit of respect for people's property. A great deal of money has been invested into this golf club. It's just mindless."
Nottinghamshire Police has "increased patrols" around the course, but said no arrests had been made in connection with the damage.
