Huge swastikas were burned into the grass at a California golf course, CBS13 News reported.

The culprits reportedly used herbicide to kill the grass at the Alta Sierra Country Club golf course in the shape of a large swastika, said general manager of the gold course John Renslow.

The hate symbols reportedly cover the entire tee box at the 14th hole and are easily recognizable from the road, according to CBS.

“It’s disgusting,” said one golfer.

“We pay good money to come out and play on a nice course and these guys got nothing else to do,” said another.

This, however, is not the first time this hole has been targeted by vandals. Last year, a swastika was burned into the grass in the same manner only a few feet away, according to the report.

“We have streets that run through the property, and it was a spot for someone to state an opinion I suppose,” Renslow said.

The golf course has filed a report with the local sheriff, but the perpetrators of the crime have not yet been identified.
