    ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - The next time you take a swing at the Golf Club of South Hampton, you may notice some vandalism.
    "I think it's terrible. I think someone needs to be out here and catch the people because they're causing a lot of damage,” golfer Edward Fitzsimmons said.
    Early Monday morning, an unknown driver left tire marks on the second hole and nearby fairway. No word as to who would do something that, but club members have their own opinion.
    "It's probably kids, honestly. It probably is teenagers that think it's fun,” Fitzsimmons continued.
    This is the second time in 30 days vandals have struck South Hampton. Sawgrass Country Club is also dealing with the destructive actions of a vandal. More than $10,000 worth of damage was done to the greens there a couple of weeks ago. It's vandalism Edward Fitzsimmons says needs to stop.
    "Maybe not go to jail over it, but maybe let them know they're causing a lot of property damage,” he said.
    There's no exact damage estimate, but the general manager of the Golf Club of South Hampton and his staff are working to find out.
