Country club at odds with fish and game, police

Nearby shooting ranges generate complaints from local golfers


“I was on the soccer field Sunday and there was loud banging,” Town Councilor Joseph Green said. “It was like a cowboy shootout Sunday.”

Green and other councilors agreed they need to do some field work. Town officials, police officials, Fish and Game Club members and the public will be invited to a demonstration at the shooting range, to determine the effects that gunfire has on residents and golfers.

Police agreed to come to a conclusion over the issue, said police Chief William Hart

So far, no time or date has been set for these public tests to take place.

“We have had golfers come in and complain,” club manager Helga Kimball said. “It’s more about the residents than the club, we have had a lot of support from residents calling and supporting us.”
