TRAVELLERS have again been accused of attacking Crosland Heath Golf Club.
After claims that they rode quad-bikes and motorcycles on the course this week a 3ft area around the 14th hole has been dug up.
A golfer was also reportedly attacked by five children as she enjoyed a round on Thursday afternoon. Police are aware of the alleged attack and the damage.
Course director Martin Travis said: "Even though it may not sound like a large area that has been dug up, it will cost us at least £1,000 to repair.
"We are meeting a security firm to try to get someone up at the end of the course, where we are having all this trouble, around the clock.
"We are also going to plead with the travellers again. If they leave us alone we will stay away from them."
Caravans began to arrive at a site next to the course, on Blackmoorfoot Road, last Sunday.
There are now more than 25 caravans on the site, near Huddersfield Observatory.
Police have visited the travellers, but head greenkeeper Philip Haigh is doubtful that it will make any difference.
He said: "If they had just left us alone we would have stayed out of their way - but now we have been left with no choice but to contact the police."
