Running a golf club can’t be an easy job.
First of all there’s the guys who think they are professional wanting the course to be as perfect as Gleneagles or St Andrews and then there’s the pub day out who tear up the fairways like a gardener.
However, one golf club in Norway definitely comes out on top for having the strangest problem anywhere in the world.
Kenneth Tennfjord is the groundsman at Stavanger Golf Club in south-east Norway and he doesn’t have to deal with ripped up fairways, scabby greens or fox dens in the rough.
Oh no, Kenneth has to clean up a horrible mess in the actual holes themselves … poo.
One culprit has been taking a dump on the course for the last 10 years and, despite the club’s best attempts to scare him off by installing security such as high-powered spotlights, he’s still going at it as he actually managed to disable them … Wow.
Kenneth said the serial pooper is definitely a man as “they are too big to be from a women”.
The groundsmen also said that he has noticed a change in the quality of the intruder’s work as “it has went from hard to soft suggesting a change in diet or laxative use”.
And to think we complain about seagulls.
