ORION TWP. (WWJ) – Oakland County authorities are trying to figure out who put what appeared to be a pipe bomb on the grounds of the Indianwood Golf and Country Club — where the U.S. Senior Open golf tournament will be played next week.
The bomb squad was called in around 12:30 p.m. Thursday after a golf course maintenance worker found the small homemade device near a service gate off Joslyn Road.
Sheriff investigators are now conducting tests on the device.
Sheriff Mike Bouchard said there hasn’t been any specific threat to the club or the upcoming tournament, and it may be just a random act.
Anyone who may have any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department at 248-858-4950 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
The U.S. Senior Open runs Monday through July 15 at the Lake Orion course.
