Three teens have been charged after they damaged property at Point South Golf Course in south Augusta.

According to an incident report, the teens entered the course located at 4324 Peach Orchard Road sometime between Nov. 11-12 and caused around $500 in damage.

Golf course employees told officers the teens took sand trap rakes and beat the green and stabbed the broken rakes into the green. Someone also drew a picture of the male anatomy on the green.

Tee markers were thrown into a pond and a wooden fence was torn down. Employees also said some of the irrigation was damaged, authorities said.

Richard Flinchum and Jacob Lazenby, both 17, and a 15-year-old have turned themselves in for the damage, according to Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser. They face charges of criminal trespass.

I've done a few stupid things too, but not quite as mindless as that. You know; at least when you are flushing an M-80 down a toilet you get to see the toilet blow off the wall....

These boys have a great future. They turned themselves in. Now have them work it off and get to know those at the golf course.

Just teens being young and

Just teens being young and stupid. This is actually refreshing when compared to most of the reported incidences of the ignorance and immaturity of youth.
...Reminiscent of the 80's.
