Golfers finish their round on the 18th hole at the Lakeville Country Club, where a swastika was found carved into the green next to President Barack Obama's name on Sunday.

Seven News Boston—Police along with the Secret Service are investigating after a local country club discovered a symbol that represents eastern religious beliefs carved into the green.

Lakeville Country Club workers discovered the vandalism early Monday morning.

Police believe the vandals meant to carve a swastika next to President Barack Obama’s name on the 18th hole; however, the symbol was backwards and means hope and peace in some Eastern countries.

The vandals snuck in at night to carve their message, according to the owner of the country club.

We don’t know if they did it with some type of cleated shoe, or they had some type of tool and this time of year to have that happen, it’s a problem it’s much harder to fix now,” said Lou Mincone, the assistant manager of the Lakeville Country Club.

The carving is about 10 feet by 10 feet.

The manager is trying to figure out the best way to get rid of it.

Workers attempted to cover it temporarily with green spray paint; however, the symbol was carved too deep. They will now try to get turf from another area to fill in the message.

Work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday morning.

The Unauthorized 9.12 Teabagger Tour

Max Blumenthal covers the 9.12 anti-Obama rally on the National Mall, where teabaggers demonstrated their opposition to healthcare reform by calling Obama the biggest Nazi in the world, claiming he wants to put “real” Americans in concentration camps, and was born in Kenya.

But how many of them have health insurance, and do they know they’re pawns in the game of healthcare industry front man Dick Armey? Of course not.

In his article, 9/12 Protest: Here’s What Fox News Didn’t Broadcast, Max explains what he witnessed in Washington:

My video tour of the 9.12 Project is yet another exhibit of how the Republican Party’s big tent became a one-ring circus that operates according to the rules of P.T. Barnum: “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
