    There have been these signs before but they don't seem to work, unfortunately. I guess there will always be stupid people that just feel the need to show their "machismo" by destroying things. Somehow they seem to gravitate toward DG courses...

    I put a sign up at the course that the LDGC would put a reward out for info leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone damaging the course. I would like to see if all members would agree that the club could back a $100 reward in hopes of maybe making another coward think twice about doing this or bragging about it. What do you all think?

    Sounds good to me. Someone should get a running total of donations toward the reward. I'll donate $50 toward the reward and conviction...

    I haven't seen the damage so I don't know if this is the case it's just wishful thinking.

    Does it look like the trees that were cleared were cleared for a reason? Like what happened at IQ before the redesign? I think a big indicator would be if the branches were still laying there or not. If they were gone, and not just layed to the side, it could be the parks department clearing trees that they think are chocking out the other trees.

    Again, maybe wishful thinking.

    From what I was told that was checked and not the case.

    i noticed that things had been changed but just figured that the park had done it. I pretty sure they were sawn down cause the tops are flat and i think it very premeditated for someone to bring a saw onto the course. hope that thats the case anyway.

    I agree with a reward and the public stoning

    I'm really hoping it's ignorance that caused someone to do this. Either way, people should not mess with the course unless they were told to do so.

    I played there today and I knew something was off on a few holes but then again I've only played there 10 times.

    No, this has happened WAY too much to be ignorance. As Steve said, there are people that actually carry loppers and snips in their bags...
