A sports club may have to make an extensive claim on its golf insurance following vandalism that caused £50,000 worth of damage.
The Daily Echo reports how staff at Broadstone Golf Club were shocked to discover the destruction.
There was damage to the greens, a water irrigation system and the green-keeper's buggy.
Club manager David Morgan said: "It was soul destroying for our lads who have worked so hard to get the greens looking fantastic over the past year."
Despite the extensive damage, nothing was stolen from the site and it appeared the culprits were more interested in vandalising the club.
Dorset police has asked for anyone who witnessed the attack or who has information about the incident to come forward.
Broadstone Golf Club, which was founded in 1898 by Tom Dunn and redesigned by HS Colt in 1914, is known as a challenging course that attracts a host of top national players.
