They went out for a round of golf and an episode of “Breaking Bad” broke out.
Golfers in Greenville, S.C., got a big surprise last week when a meth lab was discovered in a wooded area just off the fourth green at Donaldson Golf Club, a public course, according to WNCN in Raleigh, N.C.
Just off the golf cart path, close to the fourth green, Harold Alexander said he and his golfing buddy found some weed killer containers.
“He just thought it belonged to the clubhouse and they had been killing weeds,” said Alexander.
They took the containers to the club house.
“The owner, he took the top off and he said it had a really vile smell, almost knocked the top of his head off, he said. So that’s when he called the Sheriff’s Department,” said Alexander.
Greenville County’s Hazardous Materials team, EMS and the Donaldson Fire Department rushed to the scene and evacuated the club.
Donaldson is a nine-hole course that was built in the 1940s as a recreational outlet for U.S. Army Air Base troops, and is part of a complex that still includes an active airstrip.
At least one golfer joked about the course evacuation, saying that he didn’t have a great round going, anyway. For more news that golfers everywhere are talking about, follow @si_golf on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube video channel.
