Shocker from the vaults: Hill Top’s motorised bunker-rake seems to have a yearning for swimming as it again threw itself into the drink on Sunday.

Driver Darrell Whitley left it parked parallel to the lake on the fifth hole while he investigated a golf ball stranded on the edge by the lowering water level, but was dumbstruck when the bunker-rake rushed into the water beside him, nearly taking him with it for company.

It was only last year when the same vehicle got away from The Pom on the eighth and cooled itself off in that lake and ground staff are considering attaching a set of floaties lest they lose it for good someday.
