There’s a bogey on the 19th hole.
Booze bandits struck the Dyker Beach Golf Course’s clubhouse for the second time in less than three months on Oct. 20, making off with enough high-priced hooch to kill a horse. Liquor thefts at event spaces like the 86th Street golf club are par for the course, one police officer said.
“In my experience, any time you have a catering hall, kids, and alcohol, you can have problems,” said a detective at the 68th Precinct, who did not want to be named because the case is still open.
The latest lift could have been an inside job — the culprits appear to have their hands on a set of keys that went missing from the club in September, according to a police report.
It’s the second boozy burglary at the municipally owned course in less than three months — and at least the third since last year.
Two thirsty thieves broke in last month and got away with at least 36 bottles of alcohol kept in a basement storeroom, a police report states. They grabbed Grey Goose vodka, Hennessy cognac, and Johnnie Walker scotch whisky — a heady haul worth $1,500, police said.
Another thief did not shy from using force to get to the good stuff at the golf club over this summer. He clipped two sets of locks — one at a gate between 11th and 12th avenues, the other at a storage room — around midnight on Aug. 12 to get to the hooch. He loaded his car up with twice as much liquor as the latest thieves, absconding with alcohol worth $3,078, police said.
In February 2014, an overnight burglar took an even pricier haul from the catering hall. He grabbed three 52-inch flat-screen televisions, three bottles of Hennessy, and three handles of Grey Goose, according to police.
Police have not made any arrests. A manager at the golf club would not comment.
