    Does MBN have surveillance cameras? 

    Heck, anyone have any idea how many courses along the strand have cameras?

    I play mostly at Barefoot and it looks like it would be relatively easy to walk off with someone else's clubs from the bag drop if one was so inclined. That said, I'm not sure what security is in place, or even if they have had a problem. Just thinking out loud.

    Sorry to hear...I would think we would see more posts like this at the courses that have multiple tracks out of one clubhouse area like barefoot, MBN, Legends, etc...

    Good luck in your recovery efforts driver. This is an issue in any major golf market. A few years ago we had multiple sets stolen over a few month period, once two times in one day. It is a terrible position to be in as the pro. We have signs posted in the parking lots and at bag drop reminding people to mind their property.

    The police actually caught the guys. I think there were 2-3 thieves and a fence up in NMB that ran an eBay shop out his back door.

    We have since installed cameras at the bag drop and all of our employees are informed of the issue and do their best to keep guard.

    But when there are 100 people at bag drop and someone pulls up in a car and casually goes and grabs a set of clubs and puts in in their trunk, we have to assume those are his.

    It's a good idea to minimize the time clubs are at the bag drop. If arriving early for breakfast or lunch, don't get your clubs out of the car until after eating. After your round, put your clubs in the car before going in for lunch/drinks.

    Some feel it's a good idea not to use the headcovers for current premium clubs, Scotty putters, etc. Use generic or outdated club headcovers, which also discourages single club theft by actual golfers.

    Sorry to hear that. Given the price of clubs these days, I'm surprised we don't hear about it more often.

    Also, generic head covers are a good idea as well...I'm guessing when a thief see's "Scotty Cameron" on a putter, or R1 on a driver, a Ping Bag, etc...that bag becomes priority #1 to steal. It probably means you have expensive electronics in the bag as well.

      A lot of times you not only get your clubs stolen, but your keys, wallet, etc... are in the bag as well.

    Good point, but in my case at least, that won't happen because I put a small bag with two cigars and accessories, keys and whatever else I will probably need in the front compartment of the golf cart. That is the first thing I grab getting out of the cart. I'm not nearly as diligent checking the basket behind the seat for my belongings, and that has cost me over the years.

    Consider looking at Craigs list or Kijiji, you might find your clubs for sale there.
    Bill Cochrane Golf is a game invented by the same people who think music should come out of a bagpipe.

    Thanks guys MBN was as helpful as they could be they searched all the courses and we tried to review camera footage but the camera that covered the area of the bag drop where mine were was down. The manager at MBN called the police had them come out and do a report, he also went way above and beyond by giving me the clubs out of the trunk of his car. They werent the same as mine but they got me through, he also set me up with all TaylorMade R1 stage two stuff to use for the day but my heart and mind wasnt in playing without my clubs.

    I am still sick at my stomach I usually take all care in the world to watch my clubs but this happened in a span of 30 minutes. Cam from putting green and put my putter in the bag at 8:20 went into club house for about 30 minutes and came out and my clubs were gone.

    FYI if anyone runs across my Scotty Cameron it has a white grip on it with no markings. My head cover on my scotty was an old Masters faded out cover. My taylormade 4 rescue had a Tennessee headcover the Ping had the G20 and the 3 wood had the taylor made cover.

    Happened before 9 am. I would think that someone picking up clubs at that time would catch someones attention. Usually 9 am would be the time for unloading.

    My thought exactly. Clubs leaving at 9:00 would be a big clue that could gain attention. Makes the thief even more brazen, and what about the clubs being taken from the area where the camera was down??

    clubs are almost always stolen in the most popular tee time area in daylight, when the most people are around the bag drop and chaos ensues, but I agree with 2manyputts...it's odd that the camera is down, and the thief must have known that? Bag drop guy in on it?
