Dougherty County golf club burglarized

Dougherty County, GA (WALB) - Burglaries continue to be a problem in South Georgia. A Dougherty County Golf Course clubhouse is broken into, and the crooks took more than $14,000 worth of golf equipment.

The burglary was discovered at the River Pointe Golf Club Tuesday. Overnight someone broke in the back door of men's locker room, bypassing the alarm. The thieves took eight golf bags and shoes from the member's lockers, and removed two big screen plasma TV's off the wall, valued at about $3000. The golf equipment was valued at more than $14,000, but golf pros say the crooks will not be able to sell them for that much.

River Pointe Golf Pro and General Manager Buster Clark said "On the black market, those golf clubs aren't worth nearly as much as they are brand new. Obviously, they've either got a buyer who wants these golf clubs right quick, to make a quick dollar."

Clark said they are increasing security at the clubhouse. The club has insurance, and the member's equipment will be covered.
