The Craziest Local Rules You'll Ever See
Somehow, someone got their hands on the above local rules for the Richmond Golf Club at a London country club back during World War II times.
Directortoblue clarifies why in the world they had these rules ...
German aircraft from Norway would fly on missions to northern England; because of the icy weather conditions, the barrels of their guns had a small dab of wax to protect them. 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.
I'd say this would be scarier than any shark or alligator you'll ever find on a golf course.
