Simon Murphy reports on the damaged to the burn on the fourth hole, which overflowed during last month's storms.
Last night, Suzanne Kelly, a local resident who discovered the damage, said it was ‘beautifully ironic’.
She added: ‘The amount I know about golf would fit into a teaspoon. However, I do know when I’m walking on a pathway and come to a big chasm, that’s not the best.
‘I’m just glad the light hadn’t gone by the time I got to that point on the course otherwise I’d be talking from a hospital bed with a broken leg.
‘There’s no fence, no sign, no warning you’re about to fall into a hole, just a few traffic cones.’
