Uber driver gets lost on golf course
An off–duty Uber driver had a nightmare journey, which led him to the middle of a golf course.
The driver was filmed trundling up the buggy lane through the South Essex golf centre’s course last week.
The hapless motorist then told bemused golfers he had lost his way while driving to a barbecue.
Stephen Maguire, 28, took his phone out to film the Toyota Prius as soon as he saw it approaching the ninth hole.
He said: ‘I was playing golf with my dad and he suddenly said – ‘is that a car?’
‘I turned and saw a normal car driving up the hills on the buggy path. I’ve never seen a car up there so high.’
Mr Maguire spotted the driver trying to do a ’15 point turn’ in between bushes as he tried to make his way off the course.
He said: ‘He drove towards me and I said ‘you all right? You’re on a golf course!’
‘He said he was trying to get to a barbecue.
The golfer from Basildon, Essex, said he did not know how the motorist had got onto the course.
He said: ‘He must have been spiralling up those hills someho, I’ve never seen a car up there. We just started laughing.’
