    Pipe bomb widens hole on Westmoreland golf course
    Thursday, July 24, 2008
    The Associated Press
    State police say someone used a pipe bomb to make one hole a lot bigger than normal on a Westmoreland County golf course.

    State police say someone exploded a suspected pipe bomb in the hole of the fifth green at Valley Green Golf Club sometime between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 5 a.m. yesterday.

    Police are still searching for a suspect and are at a loss to explain the incident.

    Frank Powaski, who works in the golf club's pro shop, says the explosion created a hole about a foot-and-a-half in diameter on the green.

    Mr. Powaski says players are still using the green because another regulation size golf hole has been cut into another location.

    "Freeze,gopher!"
    If it turns out that the greens crew was"just bored",I am sure that someone will FIND them plenty to do to avoid boredom while on the clock.
