A popular course has pleaded with dog walkers after a number of animals caused “unacceptable” damage.
Leven Links claimed damage is being done “daily” by dogs being allowed to roam free off the lead.
It posted a plea on social media for dog owners to keep their pets under control.
Club bosses accused walkers of treating the course “as a park” and begged those responsible to do more to protect the course.
The appeal was accompanied by a number of pictures showing deep marks in the fairways and greens.
“Please keep your dog on a lead when you are walking around the course,” the club said on Instagram.
“This damage is happening on a daily occurrence, sometimes during the day.
“It really is unacceptable to treat this golf course as a park.
“Please do more to protect our fine links.”
