SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/ANN): A golf buggy, sans driver, plunged off the second tier of a driving range at Keppel Club on June 20, crashing near two stunned golfers who were preparing to tee off.

Thankfully, no one was injured as a result of the incident, Keppel Club in Sime said in a Facebook post on June 21.

A 20-second TikTok video posted by user ahliang7766 shows a man in an orange shirt placing what looks like a golf bag in the front seat of a stationary buggy with no passengers.

The buggy, which is facing the course, begins to move forward.

The man notices the runaway buggy and chases after it, but the vehicle continues to trundle off the ledge, taking a chair along with it.

The clip then cuts to footage of the ground floor of the driving range, where at least two men are preparing to swing.

The buggy and chair crash on the grass a few metres away from one of the men, and both golfers stare at the fallen objects.

In its Facebook post, Keppel Club said the incident happened on June 20 in the morning.

“The safety of our members and guests remains our top priority and an investigation is ongoing,” it added.

The club also reminded golfers to “exercise care and caution on the course and on the ride too”. - The Straits Times/ANN
