Auburn golf course dispute ends in assault

KENT – A fight at an Auburn golf course over slow play has resulted in a felony assault conviction for a man who hit another golfer in the head with a club.

A 33-year-old Puyallup man, Nicholas Shampine, faces more than a year in prison when he is sentenced June 26 in King County Superior Court in Kent.

The Seattle Times reported he was convicted Tuesday for injuring another golfer last July at the Auburn Golf Course.
