York County has released recordings of two 911 calls made from Grandview Golf Club in Dover Township requesting police because five black women allegedly weren't following the rules.

Both calls came from former county commissioner Steve Chronister, whose son and daughter-in-law serve as co-owners of the club.

The first call supposedly came after Chronister first confronted the women, including York County's NAACP chapter president Sandra Thompson, during the second hole for slow play.

Chronister refers to Thompson in the 911 call made on April 21.

The second call came after three of the women had left, and Thompson and Myneca Ojo were getting set to tee off on the 10th hole.

The women have alleged racial and gender discrimination, and video of the confrontation between the 9th and 10th holes has gone viral.

The state Human Relations Commission, responding to requests from Gov. Tom Wolf and state Sen. Vincent Hughes, D-Philadelphia and Montgomery counties, recently announced that it would hold a hearing "related to the ongoing issues of racial tension" stemming from the incident.

The date and location of the hearing have not been set.
