Fishers trespass on golf green

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Two fisherman were trespassing when they decided to fish at a golf course’s lake, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On July 20, an employee working at the St. Marlo Pro Shop, 2195 Lake Park Drive in Duluth, told deputies he saw the two men fishing at the lake on hole No. 1.

The employee told the men that it was dangerous for anyone to be where golf balls were being hit.

He asked them to leave and they refused.

Then, the employee took the men’s tackle boxes and said they could get their property back at the pro shop once they provided identification.

After the employee went back to the shop, he said both men followed him and said they would not show any identification.

The fishermen “aggressively took back their tackle boxes.”

The employee said the men fled the course in a black Jeep Cherokee.
