Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington has confirmed that all 18 flags from their pins were stolen recently. Makray officials have estimated that the flags were stolen sometime Friday evening, November 25, 2011.
Makray Memorial Golf Club is open throughout the year, making the course an inviting target for vandals during the Chicago golf offseason. Mild temperatures probably added to the opportunity for the thieves.
“We’ve never had anything like this happen before,” Assistant Golf Professional Brad Ray said. “We’ve had one or two of them go missing, but not all 18. That takes a lot of work.”
Barrington police have no leads, and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the incident can call 847-304-3300.
