ROCK HILL — Three juveniles were charged with damaging property after police say they used golf clubs to dig divots on a green of a Rock Hill golf course on Tuesday.
Two members and an employee at Waterford Golf Club, off Waterford Park Drive, witnessed one teenager and two preteens use golf clubs to create divots on the green of Hole No. 5 at about 4 p.m., according to a Rock Hill police report.
In golf, a divot is an impression or scar left on the ground after a player hits the ball and then the ground when striking it with the iron.
A PGA professional at the club told police there were several holes in the grass, which is very expensive to maintain, the report states. He estimated that the children, 11, 12 and 13, caused about $120 in damage.
Police took all three children into custody and charged them with damaging golf course property, the report states. They were later released to their guardians.
