— The golf course at Chockoyotte Country Club was damaged after someone drove an all-terrain vehicle over it late Wednesday, police and club officials said Thursday.

The damage to greens on holes 2, 4, 5, 8 and 14 was estimated at $25,000 to $30,000, Weldon Police Chief Mark Macon said. The greens might need to be re-sodded, he said.

John Simeon, president of the country club, said officials likely won't know the full extent of the damage until Monday or Tuesday after fertilizer treatments are finished.

Club members can still play on the greens until they are repaired, Simeon said.

Police asked anyone with information about the incident to call Halifax County Crime Stoppers at 252-583-4444.
