An unusual site was seen on the side of the 12th fairway, a member of the course staff was cutting the grass on the side of the steep bank at the side of the 17th green,all we heard was a beeping a clatter and saw the lawnmower driver and all enter the hazard! No fun for him but was very funny from our side. I wonder if he got a shot penalty??
