18th at Pilgrim's Run in Grand Rapids, Mich. is a little too fun
But what I witnessed yesterday took the cake. As I approached the 18th tee, I saw six guys with their complimentary range bucket wailing away on the tee.
The green is drivable (apparently Lee Janzen did it a few years back), but wraps around a little pond, making it an ultimate risk-reward hole, as well as plain-old fun.
These guys were wailing away, with at times multiple splashes occuring in the pond at once. They unloaded almost a bucket’s worth of range balls before they decided to hit their “real” tee shots.
I ended up driving up the hole with them, and they didn’t even pick up the range balls that didn’t find the water (more than a dozen in the fairway and rough).
Now, I’m all for a little shenanigans here and there on the golf course, but if you’re gonna use complimentary range balls to swing for the fences, at least pick em up so the remaining groups aren’t confused as heck when they drive down the fairway looking for their ball.
