Maybe it was a "lighter" accident?
Golf Courses Are Dangerous
By Kickntrue on 10/11/10
I know I'm a bit jaded since I'm actively seeking interesting and odd golf stories on a daily basis, but still, it seems a disproportionate number of people are murdered at golf courses.
Two people were shot and killed Saturday night during a private event at a San Leandro golf course, police said.

The incident occurred at about 9:45 p.m. in Wedges Grill at the Monarch Bay Golf Club near Fairway Drive in western San Leandro. The space had been rented for a private birthday party, police were told, and the gunplay occurred on the dance floor.

Officers arrived to find three people with gunshot wounds as other guests fled. One was pronounced dead at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, while the other two did not have life-threatening injuries. A fourth victim was taken to San Leandro Hospital by friends, and died there.
I suppose it's all for the better, but I can't help but feeling a little left out that I NEVER get invited to these kind of parties. Excitement at parties I go to is doing the "Star Performer" cards during Cranium. I'm so lame.

I'm thinking you don't want to be invited to parties where random murder occurs.

Then again maybe you do.
Like my wife says , " It doesn't take all kinds, there just ARE all kinds."

Yeah, I agree with Kurt. I work near San Leandro. It's next to Oakland, murder capital of the country. I had Monarch Bay on my list of courses I need to play in the area...maybe I'll skip it.

Isn't smoking (tobacco) illegal in California? Perhaps someone took issue with all the cigarette and cigar smoking the burlesque performers were doing.
Kurt the Knife says:
Smoking in CA isn't "illegal" (having been a smoker misself) most consider it should be a solitary suicide hence the exclusionary zones.

Monarch is a great course, links style by the bay, lots of wildlife and foxes! Maybe they will be forced to reduce the greens fees.....
Pappybro says:
More likely they'll be a bit more selective with who they rent the place out to.

Just kidding.
