Potters Bar Golf Club fined for selling booze illegally
A GOLF club has been ordered to pay almost �2,000 for selling booze illegally for more than TWO YEARS.
Alcohol was both displayed and sold at Potters Bar Golf Club without a valid licence in place, magistrates heard.
The court was told a Hertsmere Borough Council licensing officer visited the Darkes Lane club to carry out a general inspection in August 2009.
He discovered the designated premises supervisor listed on the licence had left nearly two-and-a-half years before.
Magistrates were told the invalidity of the licence meant that every single sale of alcohol since his leaving had been illegal.
