Dog walkers and ramblers are being asked to consider their actions when walking their dogs at the golf courses in the town.

Community Officers understand that some dog owners have been allowing their animals to chase balls on the courses and to foul indiscriminately on the playing surface. This has resulted in damage to greens and consternation amongst members of the Leven Links Golf Courses.

I would urge local dog walkers and ramblers in the area to consider their actions

Community Constable Gordon Latto

Community Constable Gordon Latto said: “In an effort to prevent the problem escalating, I would urge local dog walkers and ramblers in the area to consider their actions and to stick to the perimeter walkways when in the vicinity of the golf courses.

“There has been damage caused to the greens at Leven Links and the time and effort to repair these surfaces is both costly and time consuming.”

He added: “Recently, the Leven Golfing Society also suffered vandalism to their green keeping sheds and quite rightly the problem has been brought to the attention of the local police.”

If you have any information on the identity of those responsible for acts of vandalism in the Levenmouth area please call 101.
