On the 15th hole, away from the sight of the clubhouse, a man was found hanging from a tree. Next to the upturned stool at his feet was a suitcase containing the body of his pet dog, a vet’s bill and a suicide note. The Police dealt with the man but wouldn’t touch the dog.
In his note, the man asked permission for his dog to be buried on the golf course – it had been his favourite place to walk. However, by the time the note was read, the council had already taken the dog away to be destroyed.
