Thieves target golfers parked at Formby Hall Golf Club 

Another smash and grab golf club theft happened at Forby Hall Golf Club this afternoon, Sunday 22 May 2016.

The owner said: I’m Absolutely devastated – owned the car a day and it’s been smashed into at Formby Hall  golf club car park and my clubs stolen – if anybody gets offered clubs – Vega irons, Taylor Made R1 tour bag, rangefinder, ping wedges etc… please contact me through“.

Unfortunately this is a common occurrence at Formby Hall Golf  Resort and Spa. This theft was captured on CCTV but it’s  of a poor quality and from miles away.

One golfer at Formby Hall Golf Club said: “This is not the first time this has happened and will not be the last. The privately owned members clubs in area all operate a bollard entry/exit system that  prevents this. It’s about time the owners started investing money into looking after the members before they all leave”

If anyone has information regarding these crimes please telephone Merseyside Police on 101 or crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
