This was not the first email has been sent out explaining to the men that they should not do this...it was one of those "once again with feeling...don't do that!" kind of messages. It went like this:
To all golfers:
Again, it’s come to our attention that some members have urinated on the golf course. Please note we do have rest rooms available in the clubhouse and on hole #14.
|Arizona Golf Course...so many trees and|
so many rules!
As before, if nature is calling please head to the closest facility. The folks who live on the course with their family do not want to see people relieving themselves in public.
Here is the law regarding exposure:
Arizona’s Laws on Indecent Exposure
According to A.R.S. 13-1402:
“Is peeing in public indecent exposure in AZ?
Peeing in a public setting constitutes indecent exposure. An officer can arrest someone who is urinating by the side of a road because they are exposing themselves in an inappropriate manner. Although the offender may not know they are committing a sexual offense, the law still constitutes the exposure as sexual and indecent.
Please DO-NOT Urinate on the course.Thank you!
So, as you can see, it is not only creepy to pee on the golf course, it is also illegal! Wow...both creepy AND illegal.
We have the same problem here in Oregon on our golf course. Signs are posted asking the golfers to respect the neighborhood, etc. It has been an ongoing problem forever.
I recall an older lady calling the pro-shop to complain about a man peeing on a tree with in plain sight of her back window. She didn't know who it was but she could give them a vital piece of information...the man was left handed. I am sure that narrowed it down!
Is this a problem everywhere? I wonder.
