Over the years there have been many weird and wonderful things that have happened either on a golf course or to golfers in general. Some of these are fantastic, others tragic and some just down right unbelievable.
For example, there are corroborated stories of one man hitting five - count them...five - holes in one in the space of seven days. There are no reports that he won the lottery that week but I bet he sat there with his ticket watching the numbers come out with more than a little hope in his heart.
In another example of the strange world of golf there was a report of a police chase that did not quite go the way of the boys in blue. The person they were chasing was only driving a golf buggy with taylormade rocketballz irons but little did the cops know that his cart had been ever so slightly modified with a huge engine capable of propelling the cart to speeds in excess of those achievable by the police car. I would have loved to have watched that one.
There is one hole that you definitely do not need a golf buggy for. In fact, a speed boat might be a better option! For a $1 million challenge the RCB built a full sized green on a barge and floated it out 165 yards into Toronto harbour. Players drove off from a artificial tee on the side of the harbour and tried to land their ball as close to the pin on the floating green.
At least that green survived. Reports of a green keepers mistake came through when he used a mixture of chemicals on his greens to try and make them better. Unfortunately one of the chemicals was a herbicide and it killed all the grass. Mud golf anyone? Alternatively take up the growing sport of snow golf with taylormade rbz irons. Orange balls all round!
If you would rather stick with white golf balls you may want to locate cheap ones. If you do, check your dog! Reports of thirteen balls being removed from a dogs stomach abound. Other taken from a snake's stomach raised a considerable amount of money when they were auctioned on eBay in Australia. The game of Golf Cross does not even use round balls. Check this out on-line and marvel at the things you can do with a strange shaped ball!
Finally, do away with clubs and balls completely and take up Frisbee golf!
