On Friday, May 1, a young yearling deer was struck in the temple by a golf ball on the SaddleBrooke golf course. It suffered cardiac arrest. One of our experienced, well-trained golf rangers was in the vicinity and started CPR. Amidst cheers from the nearby golfers, Paul Phillips was able to get the deer’s heart beating again. Within an hour, the deer staggered to its feet and ambled off into the brush. Congratulate Paul when you see him. That was service above and beyond the call of duty.
Let this be a gentle reminder that anyone walking on the golf course during golfing hours runs the risk of being hit by a golf ball and, possibly, seriously injured. It could happen to you!
