WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) — A woman is expected to be okay after she crashed her car into a Washington Township golf club.

Golfers were getting ready to start the 18th hole at the Yankee Trace Golf Club when the car drove across the fairway and into the pond.

“We heard a loud noise and looked over and here came this car,” said Jeffrey Moore, one of the golfers.

Moore said the car came off the road at the intersection of Social Row Road and Yankee Street. From there, it barely missed a brick wall, drove across the fairway, and ended in the pond.

The golfer immediately jumped in to stop the car from submerging.

“The guy who was the first one in was holding onto the bumper,” said Moore. “Then we all pulled the car out of the deep water.”

Witnesses said the woman, who appeared to be in her 30’s, was conscious and responding to the men who jumped in the pond to help.

Rescue crews were able to get the woman out of the vehicle and take her to Southview Hospital.

Officials said it was fortunate there were no serious injuries considering when the crash happened.

“It’s a beautiful day. It’s a beautiful golf course out here in Centerville,” said Sgt. Steve Maynard with the Centerville Police Department. “A lot of activity out here today. It could have been a lot different if some of the golfers would have been at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Police said they are not yet sure why the crash happened.

While they have not ruled out any possibilities, officers said it did not appear the woman was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
