The driver told officers he dropped off his friends around 2 a.m. and was making his way home using the GPS app Waze when he made a wide turn and got stuck on the green at Brae Burn Country Club, police said.

The country club and its golf course are bounded on three sides by a residential neighborhood and on one side by an MBTA Commuter Rail line.

Officers on the scene about 5 a.m. said the driver did not appear to be intoxicated, according to police. The vehicle was removed and a Brae Burn employee told the officers there was no damage to the course.
