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.

PB Golf Ltd admitted the offences at West Herts Magistrates’ Court and was fined �1,500, and ordered to pay the council’s costs of �451.60 and a victim surcharge of �15.
