Now THAT’S a serious golfing hazard

On their way to attack England’s industrial and military targets, the Nazi aircraft would clear their guns by firing a few rounds at golf courses en route.

Naturally, the golfers were urged to take cover.

Here are the actual rules from one club.

My favorite is #7: “A player whose stroke is affected by the simultaneous explosion of a bomb may play another ball from the same place. Penalty one stroke.”

Got it? If you are disturbed by a bomb exploding, you can hit another shot but you have to take a penalty!
