No arrests have yet been made after a vehicle was driven across a golf course, causing damage to one of the greens.

The incident at Salisbury and South Wilts Golf Club occurred between the afternoon of Thursday 20th February and Friday morning.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: "We received a report of criminal damage some time between 3.00pm on February 20th and 7.00am on February 21st. At this stage, no arrests have been made."

As reported, the greenkeeping team at the golf club found muddy circular tracks through the green on the third hole, and are now appealing for more information and witnesses.

A spokesperson for the Netherhampton Road course said: "There's no updates on the people responsible, but we've had a good response on Facebook. The greenkeepers have done their best to repair the damage but it will be a while before we can play on it again."

Club member David Gell added: "It is saddening to think that some people take pleasure in this kind of vandalism and ruining other people's pastime. But our fantastic greenkeepers are already hard at work to make the repairs."
