Overnight on Monday last week, someone cut through the fence to enter the golf course on a motorbike before tearing across three greens, causing about $50,000 damage.

The same thing happened in March, causing $10,000 damage, and before that in December last year.

General manager Mike Smith said the club had become so frustrated by the damage it had decided to offer a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the culprits.

‘You can’t play a full golf course when this happens,’ he said.

‘It’s not just the members, as we are open to the public’
