Default Hey, what up with the whiskey bottles at Heron Golf Course

Hey fellow golfers, whats up with all of the empty whiskey bottles thrown around Heron Executive Golf Course. I golfed there today and picked up and disposed of four empty bottles of Fire Ball Whiskey. I saw at least a dozen more that I could not get to. I cannot believe golfers are this inconsiderate even with disposal baskets on every other hole. What gives? And don't blame the Ambassadors, as they do a very commendable job at keeping the courses tidy.

Maybe they don't want someone at home to see the empties in the recycling bin. Sounds like an expensive brand. Sad either way. Good job picking them up.

I spoke to an ambassador about a month ago, and this has been going on for a while now. It's in the water next to the bridge, if I remember correctly, around the 6th or 7th hole. He usually finds them in the early when making morning rounds, and thinks it is happening after hours.

Interesting...if you go to google maps, you can see a cart path with no apparent reason, use that exists from a Cane Garden GC to the Heron GC. It runs directly behind some TV homes with no barrier, I.e., wall, fence. They would have access to the path from their back yard. Anyone have any idea what the original purpose of that path is/was? Perhaps now used for after hours activities???

Sorry to say it out loud but do not like some of the types being drawn to TV these last few years. This one incident isn't earth shaking but ignoring this type of behavior will mushroom.

I believe this path is used by the golf work crews.
