Barrington police: Swastikas scrawled into golf course

Posted

Officials at Rhode Island Country Club contacted Barrington police on Friday, Oct. 9, after discovering vandalism on the fifth hole of the golf course.

According to police, a course maintenance worker spotted nasty messages, a swastika and obscene images scrawled in the sand bunkers near the fifth green. It also appeared that someone had taken the flag pin and repeatedly stabbed holes into the putting green. A marijuana smoking pipe was found near the vandalism.

This was fourth recent occasion where vandals had damaged the course, said police. Someone had also driven a vehicle across the practice putting green near the first hole tee.

Police said Rhode Island Country Club officials recently installed low-light security cameras at the golf course in an effort to track down the vandals.
