Dangerous golf course drive

A man has been charged with drunk driving on a local golf course.

Last Friday, police were called after a pick-up truck cut off several people while travelling erratically down 152 Street. The driver, a 56-year-old South Asian man from Victoria, then veered into the parking lot at EagleQuest Golf course, at 7778 152 St. Police received a call from the golf course pro shop when the man took his truck onto the fairway.

Surrey RCMP say it’s fortunate no one was injured during the reckless driving spree. The golf pro said the truck was stopped at around the seventh or eighth hole, apparently a tough hole to drive at the best of times.

Luckily the truck maintained a course along designated paths, and didn’t cause a great deal of damage. All greens were missed.

Any golfers hitting EagleQuest in the next while can pick up, and drop their ball, if it lands in any of the tire tracks, the pro said.
