Golfers needed to yell boar instead of fore as three players were bitten by huge pigs trotting on to the greens

Bosses were left with no choice but to close the course after the owner of the animals could not be traced.

The pigs are believed to have escaped from a smallholding and had been roaming the £655-a-year nine-hole course for days.

Lightcliffe Golf Club near Halifax told members: “Fierce pigs at large. This is actually very serious.

“There are two large pigs roaming from below the viaduct on to the course.

“Three members have been bitten and needed medical attention.

“Please keep well clear.”
