SANDY Five men recently went on a destructive drunken spree on a Sandy golf course, according to police.
Now investigators are teed off and asking for the public's help to find the partying golf group.
On July 19, five men, all in their early 20s, walked into River Oaks Golf Course, near 9750 South and 900 West, and purchased more than $300 in golf balls, rounds of golf and other equipment, said Sandy Police Sgt. Victor Quezada. The men paid for the items in cash.
The men then rented golf carts by providing false identification, he said. Before they hit the links for their first swing, they also bought "a large amount of beer," Quezada said.
At the end of the day, when the men had not returned, employees of the golf course went out to see what happened.
They found greens and fairways ripped up, beer cans lying all over the course and one of the golf carts submerged in a pond, Quezada said. Damage was estimated at $10,000.
Sandy police have been looking for the quintet for a month with no luck. Now they're asking anyone in the public who knows anything about the vandalism to call 840-4000.
The men are facing possible felony charges because of the amount of damage caused.
