Police have vowed to catch the vandals, who drove onto the 1st greensometime onWednesdaynight or early Thursdayfrom nearby Golf Course Road and committed a series of burnouts.
The level of damage to the greenand multiple tyre tracksled police to believe more than one vehicle was involved.

“We’re going to get these idiotsand when wedo I’ll personally drag them through the centre of town to make an example out of them,” he said.

It is the second time the Tamborine Mountain Golf Club has been targetted in 2016, with a similar incident in January on the same greencausing about $3000 worth of damage.
Club greenskeeper Wayne Mooresaid the damage would mean the 1stgreen was out of action for about two months.
“The damage is quite severe, it’s going to be a lot of work to reseed it and get it back to standard,” he said.
“I’m not happy, there’s a bunch of lowlifes out there who have got nothing better to do.”
A temporary green hasbeen cut to ensure the course isstill playable.
Mr Moore, who has been the club’s greenskeeper for 14 years, said the vandalism had been a regular issue during his time there.
He said the club hadbegan investigating the idea of installing bollardsto stop vehicles accessing the course, and would soon apply for a state government grant to cover part of the cost.
