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!
