Literally, fire in the hole! Not sure if my danger radar would pick this up right away if it was me.

This is a perfect rock to throw in the middle of a lake.  It would be hot potato-like hands action once I pick it up tho.  Get it and throw fast... haha

That's one way to catch some fish. :-P

Looks like a body only.  No detonator.  My best guess, an older, inert M61 practice grenade. Vietnam era.  Modern M67's are much more spherical.

 

Editted to add that I just read the whole post.  More likely a WWII pineapple.  Has to be the old Awase Meadows course on Okinawa.  I played that course dozens of times back in the late 80's.  Always a "blast"!  :-D

Yeah, it was definitely a blow up hole for them.

Gives a whole new meaning to pin in or out?

How likely is it live? How does bomb disposal defuse it?

You're looking at the top of the grenade where the striker assembly and fuse would have screwed into the grenade.  It has no fuse now, that's why I thought it might be an inert dummy grenade.  That still could be the case, if they had used that area for training prior to building the course.  Without the fuse, it can't explode.

They won't even normally attempt to diffuse unexploded ordnance though.  They simply take it to a disposal range and blow it up.

If I ever play on a course near a potential battleground/training site, I want you in my group. :-D

There is a course in MA, Red Tail Golf Course, that is located where Ft Devens used to be. Occasionally there is a news story about someone in the woods finding ordinance near the course in the woods. They tell you not to touch it. About 20 years back, a kid found a grenade and put it in his back pack. It went off and he died.

So I would always err on the side of caution

I'm going to assume that grenade was used in an effort to stop a certain critter from terrorizing the golf course...

    • I did tell him to f*** off and worry about his own ball he just talked more shit after...Short of having fist fight with an old man that's about all I could do.  And yes I have called rules violations on folks before, but generally try to help fellow competitors as much as possible during competition. I've been playing in these money tournaments for about 3 years now and it has 120+members and I have never played in a foursome during a tournament where someone was blatantly pulling this.  I assumed there was some rule against it since I haven't had someone try that before. I asked the question and you guys answered, and I honestly didn't thank my manhood or ability to " handle it as a human" would come into question. I think the topic is now over, and ask that you please close the thread unless you folks aren't done attacking me yet.  
    • This reminds me of the episode on Bewitched where Darrin and his boss Larry take a prospective client golfing. The client is addressing his ball and Darrin asks if he inhales or exhales on his backswing and it totally messes the guy up to where he cannot function anymore. Hoses his game.
    • Good grief, man.  Toughen up a bit.  Like @iacas, @David in FL, and others have already indicated: tell the guy to shut up or get over it.  Why is it only in golf do people seem to be so weak-minded?
    • Thanks for posting. I can edit the title for you with the name of the cart if you would like. It would make it easier for folks to find. Also, more picks would be a nice addition.
    • No. Seriously, Matt. Tell the guy to shut his trap or suck it up and/or laugh off his attempts. Jeezus. If it’s this easy to throw you off I almost can’t blame him at all. Handle it. One way or another. If you couldn’t handle it as a human I doubt you could handle telling him he broke a rule if that was the case.
