Glenmaura National Golf Club in Moosic, Pennsylvania has probably hosted many weddings throughout the years, but it's doubtful that any of them have ended with a car stuck in a creek on one of the fairways.

It sounds like a scene from a comedy film, but it is indeed true according to a tweet from popular account @acaseofthegolf1. The Chevy sedan ended up in a creek that fronted the 17th green following an apparent argument between a couple attending a wedding at the golf club.

According to reports, the man’s wife got out of the car and wandered onto the golf course while he then followed her in the family car, clearly not turning out to be the wisest idea in the world.

Police were called to the disruption but to everyone’s surprise the man was reportedly sober and no charges were placed, while no damage was caused to the course either.

This was about as good as it got however, with the car having to be hauled from the creek, presumably with some damage caused. A better drive down the 17th fairway next time might be a more logical option to make the green in regulation.

There was reportedly only one official repercussion handed down and that was to the members whose wedding was actually held at the club. They have apparently been banned from hosting any other events on the club property for two years.

So, if anyone ever plans to host a wedding at a golf course, especially one as revered as Glenmaura National, it’s probably a wise idea to keep an eye on the guests.

Ross holds a passionate interest in golf and tries to play as often as possible, although having two daughters under the age of four means his quest to break 80 will have to wait a little bit longer. He writes about golf in his spare time, most recently having an article published in the Golf Memories anthology Mind the Links, which was released in July with all proceeds going towards Alzheimer charities. With a handicap that floats between 13-14, highlights are few and far between on the golf course, with an eagle on the par 4 16th at Kinghorn one that stands out (it doesn’t matter that it was only 290 yards!).
