Vandals damage green, fairways at Richter Park golf course in Danbury

Danbury Police are investigating vandalism at Richter Park, which happened Sunday and Monday.  
 
Golf Course Superintendent Rob Dorsch says someone did donuts on the the 13th green and the 11th, 12th, and 14th fairways.  The suspects used a golf cart.  He believes it was golfers who came to Richter Park late in the afternoon.

Dorsch notes that no one is supposed to drive on the green, but they've also had other restrictions in place over the last two weeks because of the amount of rain that's fallen.  
 
  
 
Staff was able to repair the damage so play can still happen.  Dorsch says people probably won't notice the damage to the fairways.  On the green there's some sand to get the area covered.  He praised staff for the repair work.
 
Richter Park brought in extra staff to monitor the course. A $2,500 reward is being offered to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of a suspect.
