British Golf Rules in 1940

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My dad forwarded me this email:

 

British Golf Rules in 1940 And, you thought you were a tough weather golfer. The notice below was posted adjusting rules at a golf club in Britain in 1940. You have to admit --- these guys really had to like the game to play! German aircraft from Norway would fly on missions to attack northern England . Because of the icy weather conditions, the barrels of their guns had a small dab of wax in the muzzle to protect them from clogging with ice. In addition to attacking industrial or other targets close to golf courses, as they crossed the coast, they would clear their guns by firing a few rounds at the golf courses. Golfers were urged to take cover.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about! 

 

No whining about playing out of a dinky little sand-filled divot.  If a bomb explodes in the middle of your swing you can replay, but it's still a penalty stroke!

 

Man up and play goff!   :beer:

I think the bomb exploding and you may reply with a penalty is my favorite too! Crazy
