Vandals defaced two buildings on the Kastle Green Golf Club grounds over the weekend, wreaking about $40,000 in property damage.

Bill Fletcher, who owns the property on Rogues Road in Midland, discovered the vandalism Monday afternoon. Mirrors and glass doors were shattered and golf clubs were bashed into walls and computer monitors in the clubhouse. Graffiti of song lyrics and profanity covered almost every wall of both the clubhouse and the nearby maintenance shed.

Fletcher, an attorney in Rappahannock County, purchased the 18-hole golf course after it closed last year, hoping to sell it to someone who wanted to revive it as a business. Fauquier sheriff's deputies are investigating the vandalism.

"If it had to happen, I'm glad it happened in Fauquier County, because your sheriff's department is excellent," Fletcher said.
