I wish I had the article now, but a few weeks ago some poll in australia listed "global warming" as the number one national threat (above terrorism) in the minds of the people. I wonder how they two ideas go together,
"The Japanese are prepared to play golf on a rooftop, that's how keen they are. Can you imagine? They'll be flocking in hordes to get over here and play this," course promoter Alf Caputo told Australian Associated Press.
Not to mention fuel to get to OZ....
Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.
Golf courses are a huge waste. After fronting the hundreds of dollars for your clubs, you get to pay insane amounts of money to play a round. Couple that with the fact that golf courses destroy the environment that they use, and upkeep on them further destroys surrounding areas, and you have one of the worst sports ever. Then again, people don't come down hard enough on boating. Now THAT is wasteful...
Oh, and Japanese people, who are used to paying $100/round at an AVERAGE golf course definitely WILL be all over that course.
Me? I will stick with my health-promoting, mostly environment-protecting, disc golf.
