On 3/22/13 (Friday night) about midnight, eight rental carts were taken out of the back door of cart barn by several young kids. They drove the carts on the golf course and left several ruts in #18 fairway doing donuts in the wet spots. They also littered the course with beer bottles and damaged 2 golf carts.Any information you may have will be appreciated and can contact the golf shop at (409)883-9454.

Have a great April
