Someone used their vehicle to destroy a golf green in western Minnesota Friday night – and now the Wheaton Country Club is offering a reward for information on who did it.

The Traverse County Sheriff's Office called the damage to the course "devastating" in a post on Facebook Saturday.

Photos included with the post show circular tread marks and ripped up grass on the first green of the nine-hole public course.

Gary Laines, the former superintendent at the facility, told the Star Tribune the green has been reseeded and a temporary green has been created.

Wheaten Country Club is offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

If anyone has information on the incident, they're asked to contact Deputy Darrel Thompson at 320-422-7800.
