Two O’Fallon Missouri women face indecency charges after being hauled off a Madison County, Illinois golf course by sheriff’s deputies, on Monday. The two were allegedly showing their breasts on the course, and someone didn’t like it. It happened at the Woodlands Golf Course in Madison County. Deputies say Shelly Lewis, 45 and Alicia Binford, 43, both of O’Fallon, Missouri, were playing in a tournament at the course.
But this was not ordinary golf outing. Sources close to the course say the annual outing, which many jokingly call the “Naked Golf Tournament,” has been going on for at least six years. Deputies say they received a call on Monday afternoon about nudity on the course. They sent investigators to Woodlands, who sat on a public street and watched. They say what Lewis and Binford did next had them reaching for their handcuffs.
“The investigators observed the two females both to pull down their tops, expose their breasts, Madison County Captain Mike Dixon said, “and jump around for a few seconds and hug a few of the guys with their breasts exposed.” The pair were arrested, and charged with indecency. Both were released on $100 bond. But discussion of what happened hasn’t ended there. The course sits adjacent to a subdivision, and many residents there are very unhappy.
One woman, who would only identify herself as Victoria, said that she’s appalled by what happened. “We have children that live out here. We have a neighbour that has her three grandchildren out here all the time. Our young grandchildren are out here. This is a family neighbourhood,” she said. “And the game of golf is supposed to be a gentleman’s game, and I can’t believe that anybody would allow something like this.”
