Amazon driver gets stuck in golf cart tunnel, blames GPS

A photo taken by Bill Offer, a club supervisor,  shows an Amazon truck stuck in a golf cart tunnel about 2:30 p.m. Nov. 7, 2020, at the Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Oxford, Mich.

An Amazon driver found he was a few strokes high at a Michigan golf course over the weekend.

Bill Offer spotted something unusual blocking his way through a cart tunnel about 2:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Oxford where he works as outside services supervisor.

It was an Amazon delivery truck, wedged about six feet into the tunnel between the Dunes course ninth green and the clubhouse, he said. 

He went over to the driver, who told him his GPS had led him there, Offer said.

“I said, ‘You couldn’t have been, you’re on a cart path,’” Offer said.

A photo taken by Bill Offer shows an Amazon truck stuck in a golf cart tunnel about 2:30 p.m. Nov. 7, 2020, at the Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Oxford, Mich.

 The driver was apologetic and seemingly rather embarrassed, however, Offer said.

The driver apparently took a wrong turn and didn’t realize his truck wouldn’t fit in the tunnel, which runs under a road, Offer said. To the driver’s credit, it was a two-way cart path that looks like the width of a road.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office and a tow truck was called, along with another Amazon truck, which took on the packages from the crashed vehicle, Offer said.
