A band of hooligans stole five golf carts from a Brooklyn golf course to go on a joyride and vandalized the course, along with a fleet of other carts, causing $100,000 in damages, police and a staffer said.

“It looks like a tornado hit the course,” Richard McDonough, the director of golf operations at Marine Park Golf Course told The Post on Monday, adding that 25 of the roughly 60 carts were wrecked.

Police responded to a 911 call regarding the theft of golf carts at around 9 p.m. Sunday.

Officers searching the Marine Park neighborhood by car nearly collided with five suspects each zipping around on a golf cart when the police made a right turn from Avenue V onto Hendrickson Street nearby the course, cops said.

The thugs then ditched the golf carts and ran into the nearby parking lot of the Kings Plaza Shopping Center, said authorities.

Following a brief foot chase, cops were only able to catch up with one of the vandals – a 16-year-old boy.

The teen was arrested on charges of burglary, grand larceny, criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, and criminal trespass, authorities said.

McDonough said the incident “couldn’t have come at a worse time” in reference to the coronavirus pandemic.

When the golf course eventually reopens from its coronavirus-induced shutdown, there will likely be restrictions of one person to a golf cart for social distancing purposes, McDonough explained, noting that the fleet of trashed golf carts will now make logistics even harder.
