As many as a thousand golf balls were stolen from a ball dispensing machine at Southerndown Golf Club in Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan during a burglary on Sunday.

Officers say they would like to speak to the occupants of two suspicious vehicles seen in the area that evening to come forward.

Goodness knows what those responsible will do with the balls.

They’d struggle to sell them on as each one has ‘stolen from Southerndown Golf Club’ printed on them.

So the balls are easy to spot - hopefully somebody who has seen them or who knows something about the incident can lead us to whoever was responsible.
