Yellow caution tape still cordoned off the former golf cart storage facility at Trillium Wood Golf Club on Wednesday evening after a fire razed it to the ground less than 24 hours prior.

Firefighters were called to the club on Highway 37 just before midnight on Tuesday to discover the outdoor compound used to house golf carts was on fire along with fencing alongside.

Trillium Wood staff say the cost of the damage could run into the $400,000 range or more with almost four dozen golf carts lost.  An investigation is underway to find the cause of the fire.

Fortunately the storage compound is across the parking lot from the clubhouse facility so no other buildings were affected.

Despite the fire the course was still busy with golfers when Flagstick visited the scene Wednesday evening.

Coincidentally many of the Belleville fire staff were on hand at the club on Wednesday, not to continue fighting the fire but to play their scheduled Belleville Professional Firefighters Toy Drive fundraising golf tournament.  Rental golf carts were brought in for the event which reportedly went off without a hitch but accented with the scent of a fresh fire.
