Jamie and I were at the course on Saturday. We're playing hole 15 when we hear some loud cracking - WHACK! WHACK! CRACK!
I immediately yelled that that had better not be what I thought it was. A group (3 guys) came walking out of the hole in the woods and sat at the bench on the hole we were playing and rested for a few moments and then carried on to 19.
We finished the hole and I took a quick peek down the fairway to see if I could notice anything. I couldn't.
We played 16 (nice birdie, Jamie!), 17 and were walking out after finishing 18 when I saw it - a tree down - clearly caused by some asshole.
We played 19 and both of us were shaking we were so pissed off. Then we saw a ranger truck. Jamie sprinted over to the truck to let the rangers know of what happened as the group was at that point finishing up hole 21 and she wanted to point them out. She told them what went down and then came back so we could continue golfing on 20.
We had cleared the corner and were looking at the basket when we saw the ranger truck driving away. 6 holes later, we saw the same group still whooping and hollering and having a great old time - clearly not having been harassed by the rangers.
I guess I am posting this to say... what the hell? Do the rangers not give a crap if people destroy trees in their park to make the golf course easier? Is this a new Milo policy - carve your own fairways?
I was super pissed at the jerk who broke the tree. I think I might be even more pissed at the fact that the rangers were informed about it and did nothing.
