Two local golf courses victimized by thieves


Thefts have been reported at two local golf courses in South Dundas.

Sometime between 7:30 p.m. on June 17th and 6:30 a.m. on June 18th, unknown suspects gained entry into the Iroquois Golf Course compound and took two golf carts.

One golf cart was later recovered from the St. Lawrence River by the Iroquois boathouse, but the other remains missing.

The missing golf cart has a number 10 on the side and a sign saying “maintenance” attached to the rear of the cart.

Damage is estimated at $2,000.

According to Constable Theresa Lauzon, sometime between the evening of June 22nd and 5 a.m. on June 23rd, unknown suspects “took two golf carts from the open area where the golf carts are stored” at Upper Canada Golf Course.

There was no other damage reported and one of the golf carts was later recovered from a residence in Morrisburg. 

There is no connection between the owner of the residence and the theft, said Lauzon.

The missing golf cart is a green club car with a white roof. It has the number 48 on the side.

Damage is estimated at $4,000.

At this point, said Lauzon, “we can’t say with certainty that the two incidents are related.”

The investigation is ongoing and the Ontario Provincial Police encourage anyone with information to call the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
