There's some moronic people in this world.

A few years ago the Denmark Golf Club (WA) made the transition from sand greens to grass....and now boast a beautiful 18 hole grass green golf course.......until last week.

Some lowlife has gone out and sprayed poison, likely to be glyphosate, on almost every green and also written "ha ha" on the grass using the spray.

Words fail me. These dickheads hope that the cops catch them before members of the golf club find out who they are.

What a shame   clubs are doing it tough as it is  this can take a long time to come back to a decent standard.

Not likely to be glyphosate if it acted quickly, more a total ground eradication weed killer. Glyphosate takes several days before the grass starts to die off, it does not affect the soil. If it died off completely within a few days, it is a total killer that affects the soil also, some of them will stop any further growth for up to three months so some soil treatment will be required. Soil sample analysis will tell you which it was.

The most popular used is sodium carbonate crystals dispursed in water

No, he is usually too high on fertiliser to know anything.

Used to kill off paths etc, it was the most effective and quickest method.
