Nassau County police are trying to determine who broke into an Oceanside country club early Saturday and drove its golf carts across the course and landscaping, causing approximately $75,000 in damages.

Fourth Squad detectives said at least one person pried open a garage door at the golf cart building at the South Bay Country Club at 3600 Skillman Ave. at about 5:50 a.m.

"The golf carts were removed and used around the golf course, causing damage to the carts, fences, and railings," according to a news release.
