It lends a whole new meaning to "Hole In One".

Sometimes you don't even need to click on the headline to get all you need out of the story:



In addition to sand traps and water hazards, you get tank traps and minefield hazards!

No caddy, but your supporting fireteam may have good advice on club selection!

The rough is really rough!

The golf carts are made by Krauss-Maffei!

The eighteenth hole bleeds almost as much as the first!

Go over par on the back nine and get decapitated by Al Qaeda death squads!

And no booze at "The Nineteenth Hole."

Can I get the Porsche turret on my cart?

Holin' one?

Hardly worth the greens fee if you can't hole at least two or three...

You forgot the hungry armor plated alligators in all the water traps.

Good grief, do they have no other problems? Or just a leftist's sense of priorities?

My roomie at the language school was a big time golfer. Used to get up at oh-dark thirty on Saturday mornings to play at Ft Ord. laughed at Black Horse, used to moan about Bayonet--said it was appropriately named. Claimed the caddies at Pebble Beach told him that if he could shoot under par at Bayonet, he should be on the tour. (Never happened, he choked big time.)
All those jokes above? I've heard 'em...

This fits right in with my usual thinking about golf courses ... that each one is a waste of a good rifle range.

Golf isn't a violation of shariah?

That sounds like it might actually make golf interesting.

Golf is played at engagement distances. My M4gery will fit in my cart-bag if I want, and I practice distance estimation and the location of enfilading fire throughout the hike around the traps. I imagine what to do if "cavalry" were to appear at various points, and hit to my advantage the high-ground. My play sucks but what the hell, it's just a game. You can't "win" at golf. Each shot is it's own thing.

Great. One person gets an armored golf cart, then the next guy wants armored with rockets. It's a vicious circle.

Personally I'd want a 5kW inverter driving a huge PA system on the roof. My opponent will miss his shot (golf or gunfire) when distracted by super-amplified catcalls. The absolutely last thing anyone expects to hear in the heat of battle is 125dB of "Hey batter batter batter SWING!"

At first I thought this was a mismatched picture/title until I went through the whole article.

The reality of this is even more sick and messed up than jokes about golfers navigating minefields and whatnot.

Building a golf coarse (that takes tons of water to keep pretty) in a country where most people can't get clean water is f***ing evil.

I wish the jokes were right, anyone playing there probably deserves it.
