The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in catching the person or people who vandalized the Florida Keys Country Club in Marathon over the weekend.

Six of the greens of the Sombrero Beach Boulevard golf course were damaged by tires from a large dually pickup truck, and 12 flag sticks were stolen, said Adam Linhardt, sheriff’s office spokesman.

A country club employee told deputies the truck left between $5,000 and $10,000 in damages to the course. The cost to replace the flags would be around $1,800, Linhardt said.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call the sheriff’s office Marathon substation at (305) 289-2430.
