Golf Course (vs) Volcano!


Recommended Posts



Mount Merapi in Indonesia has been erupting since October. The USGS took some pictures from a satellite last week. Remember children, when a volcano and a golf course collide, the volcano wins. You can pretty much substitute just about anything for “golf course” in that last sentence.

Wow!! Well we all know who wins all battles......mother nature. That picture is just amazing and sad at same time. I wonder how that works when it comes to rebuilding the course, or if thats even worth repairing?

Gonna be hard to rebuild on top of lava...think that is a start over and rebuild from scratch in another location.
