Vandals damaged four greens at Timuquana Country Club ahead of the Furyk and Friends PGA Tour Champions golf tournament this weekend.
It’s unclear how the damage happened or how many people did it. Miller Brady, president of PGA Tour Champions, said crews have been working with the tournament team and Timuquana Country Club staff to make repairs.
The course will be ready for the first round Friday, Brady said.
Brady said any additional questions should be directed to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Jacksonville Today requested a copy of the police report, but the Sheriff’s Office did not respond.
The four damaged greens were damaged overnight Wednesday on holes 10,12,16 and 17.
Tournament Director Adam Renfroe said in a statement that the vandalism was unfortunate, as the tournament wants to represent the best of Jacksonville. He said the tournament won’t let the actions of a few individuals take away from a great week for the city and the ability to give back to the community.
Furyk & Friends is an annual tournament for the PGA Tour Champions. The tournament is in its third year at Timuquana Country Club and features a variety of fan experiences including music, food, hospitality and more. The tournament runs through Sunday.
