Golf can be a funny game, but sometimes the things found on the golf course can be even more hilarious. One item in particular that caught our attention is signage, especially at golf courses with unusual local rules or layouts.
Here are 10 signs we are willing to bet you have not seen at your local muni or club.
No pressure – Golf Course Unknown
We get this list started with one of the more hilarious signs you’ll ever see on a golf course. An instant classic, this appropriately placed red and white warning says what everybody is thinking. Logically placed 150 yards from the center of the green, it puts a little extra pressure on club selection.
Let’s be honest, if you fly it by 15 yards, you either caught a flier or have to stop going to the gym. Good news though…if you lay the sod over it, that’s $200 saved! Worst case, if you do shatter some glass, blame your caddie, even if you don’t have one!
Estes Park Golf Course – Colorado
Here’s one you don’t see every day. Estes Park Golf Course in Colorado stuck this local rule sign in the ground for obvious reasons. The wildlife is definitely plentiful when you’re next to Rocky Mountain State Park, especially the elk. At least you get relief!
Urinal – Golf Course Unknown
Imagine you’re standing in front of a urinal, and you see this sign. What’s your first reaction? If you laughed, we’re on the same page. As golfers, we are always tinkering with our game, even when we shouldn’t be. This golf course clearly understands our plight and chooses to do something about it.
Butter Valley Golf Course – Pennsylvania
This local rule sign is probably a new one for most. It’s not every day you play a golf course with an active runway, but just in case the next time you play Butter Valley Golf Course in Pennsylvania, now you are aware. Whether the USGA adopts this rule remains to be seen.
Skukuza Golf Course – South Africa
Here’s an internationally recognizable sign that nobody wants to see. Judging by the four legs, mane, and the word “beware,” chances are there are some big cats, specifically lions, in the area. We guess that’s standard operating procedure when the golf course you’re playing doubles as a safari.
Tee Box – Golf Course Unknown
This particular sign is one of those you can’t help but smile at. Obviously, this unknown course has a problem with golf ball hoarders, but the way they broached the subject seems a little too calculated. If you are ever there, just be sure to keep your balls safe and your head on a swivel.
Royal St. Cloud Golf Links – Florida
Fore! Or should we say moo-ve. OK, we’re sorry, but we’re not sorry for this sign taking a spot on this list. Royal St. Cloud Golf Links posted this sign at their course to call attention to the pasture that apparently is next to their track. While wayward shots are inevitable, try not to harm any animals.
Tot Hill Farm Golf Club – North Carolina
We don’t really know how hard this green is, but we can imagine it’s a doozy. Apparently, Tot Hill Farm Golf Club was ranked as the seventh-toughest course according to Golf Digest back in 2007. If they are giving it to you, take it and don’t ask questions. Talk about a way to speed up play!
Warning Sign – Golf Course Unknown
If you did a double-take after reading this sign, don’t worry, we did three. Another classic golf bathroom pun, this sign is not only factual but also informational. At least we know where the restrooms are located and that this course is generally concerned about your welfare – and manhood.
Camp Bonifas – South Korea
This sign does not require a whole lot of explanation. What else do you expect from a golf course that has one hole in a demilitarized zone in South Korea? Installing live mines in the rough would be a nice little ripple to implement, though.
