Police in Glenrothes are appealing for witnesses following a report of vandalism at premises in Markinch.

The incident happened at the Balbirnie Park Golf Course sometime between, 8 pm on Saturday, 8 May, and 9.30 am on Sunday, 9 May 2021.

An estimated £2000 worth of damage was caused across the course with the greens, and associated fixtures and fittings being targeted.

Inspector Kirk Donnelly from Glenrothes Police Station said: “It is disappointing to hear of this mindless act of vandalism that has caused considerable damage to the Balbirnie Golf Course.

“There is a minority in our community who feel this sort of behaviour is acceptable, but I want to be clear, that it is not.

“I am aware of a number of reports from members of the public recently of young people gathering in this area, who are abusing alcohol, littering and becoming involved in antisocial behaviour.

“Officers are working with our partners at Fife Council and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to ensure the area is patrolled regularly, but I would also urge the parents and guardians of young people to encourage them against gathering in groups and remind them that anti-social behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated.

“We are following lines of enquiry into this incident of vandalism and I am appealing to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw anything to contact the police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference number 1065 of 9 May, or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
