Bear Creek Golf Club offers reward for arson information

BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The folks at Bear Creek Golf Club on Hilton Head Island are not letting the investigation of a fire that occurred at the golf club barn in November go cold.

They are offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who comes forward with information. They're confident that the reward will get someone speaking.

"We know someone is out there speaking. We want to encourage that information to get out there to the sheriff's office," said Hugh Murphy, the president Bear Creek Golf Club.

Some club members don't think the fire was deliberately set.

"My personal feeling is it might have been accident, but we don't know for sure at this point," Lewis Allison, a member of the golf club, said. "It's just frustrating that no one has come forward yet."

While the sheriff's office waits for new leads to come in, the owners of Bear Creek are getting ready to rebuild the barn.
