In an act of shocking vandalism, an unknown chemical substance has been directly sprayed onto three of the greens at Royal Pines Resort, home of the ANZ Ladies Masters for the past 16 years.

The greens were attacked late on Sunday evening with a poison.

Stuart Laing, the Greens Superintendent at Royal Pines could not grasp why anyone would wish to decimate his course, of which residents of the Gold Coast are extremely proud.

“Vandalism won’t stop Royal Pines from rolling out a world class course and we look forward to another successful tournament, despite this set back,” said Laing.
