Park City police blotter: Fast driving in golf cart reported
The Park City Police Department last week received a complaint about people on a Park City Golf Club fairway whose driving disturbed someone.
The report was logged at 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19, on Thaynes Canyon Drive. The people were driving what appeared to be a golf cart at a “very fast” speed, the police were told. They were on the fairway of either the fifth hole or sixth hole. There were apparently adults with kids in the vehicle, according to public police logs. The Police Department indicated the circumstances were suspicious.
The Police Department occasionally receives complaints involving incidents on the municipal golf course, but a golf cart reported to be traveling at a fast rate of speed is unusual. The Thaynes Canyon neighborhood surrounds the golf course, putting the golfers at some points just off residential streets.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
