“On October 1, we discovered some heart-wrenching vandalism at the Golden Gate Park Golf Course, a nine-hole track that is beloved by golfers of all ages and abilities. The greens and fairways on holes 6, 7 and 8 were heavily damaged by a vehicle, with the seventh green, in particular, destroyed beyond all recognition. This wasn’t a case of a wayward driver taking an unexpected detour through our golf course. Someone deliberately made a point of tearing up and destroying our golf course by using it as their own off-road course.”

(Sensitive, touchy, easily-offended fashion models on the runway are akin to sensitive, touchy, easily-offended golfers on the fairway? Seems that way sometimes.)
And hey, didn’t area billionaire and nascent media baron Warren Hellman just give the GGP something like $75k for irrigation ‘n stuff? Yes he did. Oh well.

*That’s the phrase, but whenever you’re thinking about whether something is slander or libel, just say “defamation” and that’ll cover all your bases.
