The Unity RCMP are asking the public to be aware that a large number of golf clubs were stolen from the storage units at the Unity Golf Course overnight June 29-30. Police are asking for the public’s assistance in reporting any suspicious advertising of high-end golf clubs for sale at lower than fair market prices as it is expected that, with the quantity of golf clubs stolen, they are being sold by the thieves rather than being kept for their personal use.
The Unity RCMP also is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the persons responsible for the break and enter and theft at the Unity & District Regional Park golf course, near Unity, Saskatchewan.
Between 10:30 p.m. June 29 and 7a.m. June 30, unknown persons broke into two large storage shed structures at the golf course. Each contained multiple individual cart and club storage units. Once inside of the buildings, the thieves went through the individual storage units and stole a large amount of brand name golf equipment. Several complete bags of clubs were stolen, while other property owners reported the suspects had gone through their bags and only stolen the newer, name-brand clubs.
At this time the RCMP can say that several complete sets of Taylor Made clubs were stolen. Other brand names that were targeted were Callaway, Ping and Nike as well as some others. The total value of the thefts is yet to be determined, but one set of clubs that was stolen was valued at $4,000.
