Press Trust of India  |  Bengaluru 

A golf ball that landed inside Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa's home office 'Krishna' from the golf course nearby on Friday, sent the security personnel into a tizzy.

"It came in from there", one of the security personnel at the Chief Minister's home office, who recovered the golf ball, said pointing at the Bangalore Golf Club on the oppositeside.

"Luckily, the ball did not hit anyone," anotherpoliceman guarding the vicinity told mediapersons.

This is not the first incident of a golf ball entering 'Krishna' and causing security worries.

In July last year, when a similar incident hadoccurred during H D Kumaraswamy's tenure as the ChiefMinister, the then Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara, whowas in-charge of Bengaluru affairs had said that the governmentwould explore relocating the golf course.

It had then landed on an IPS officer's car parkedinside Krishna, and had left a crack on the windshield.

The Bangalore Golf Club (BGC) claims itself to be the oldest golf course outside of the British Isles, established in 1876.

The 18-hole golf course is located on a 60-acre plot.
