Someone used golf clubs to smash furniture, fixtures and windows in the clubhouse.
The clubhouse has remained vacant since Kastle Green closed in May 2011.
Fauquier sheriff’s investigators seek the public’s help in a case of burglary and destruction of property recently at the former Kastle Green Golf Club near Midland.

Property owner Bill Fletcher estimated the damage at $30,000 to $40,000.

“Golf clubs were used to break windows, décor, computers, TVs and other equipment and furniture” in the clubhouse, Lt. James Hartman said. “Further damage was caused with spray painted graffiti. A garage building was also vandalized with graffiti.”

The crimes took place between Friday, Sept. 10, and Monday, Sept. 10, at 11446 Rogues Road.

A Rappahannock County lawyer, Mr. Fletcher bought Kastle Green, upon which creditors had foreclosed, almost a year ago.

The golf course closed in May 2011.

The 168-acre property includes the 3,600-square-foot clubhouse, an 18-hole golf course, several maintenance buildings and “by-right” zoning for nine homes.

Investigators ask anyone with information about the burglary and vandalism to call them at 540-422-8650 or Fauquier County Crime Solvers at 540-349-1000.

A caller’s identity can remain anonymous and Crime Solvers offers a reward up to $1,000 for information.

Mr. Fletcher has offered an additonal $1,000 reward for information that helps crack the case.
