A man has fronted court after allegedly ploughing a golf course at Dunedoo.
Police allege about 8pm on Tuesday, Jack Michael Ewin drove a tractor towing a disc plough to a golf course at Dunedoo, about 90km north-east of Dubbo.
It's alleged the 34-year-old used the machinery to plough most of the course's fairways and greens, causing extensive damage.
According to police it's alleged Ewin then drove the tractor from the scene, but left the hydraulic disc plough behind on one of the greens.
Officers attached to Orana Mid-Western Police District were notified and began inquiries.
Ewin was arrested by police on a property on Ballina Road about 9am on Wednesday.
While at the property, police also seized two unregistered firearms.
The man was arrested and taken to Dunedoo Police Station, where he was charged with:
- Destroy or damage property
- Use offensive weapon with the intention to commit indictable offence
- Enter enclosed non-agricultural lands interfere etc business
- Use unregistered registrable Class A motor vehicle on road, and
- Possess unauthorised firearm
Ewin appeared before Mudgee Local Court on Wednesday where he was granted conditional bail to be of good behaviour and not enter the Dunedoo sports club or Dunedoo golf club.
The matter will return to the same court on Wednesday, May 5.
Dunedoo Golf has established a GoFundMe page to assist with the club's rebuilding effort, which is understood to be out of action for at least four months.
