Golf


When cycling I passed by the local golf club. Farming is not really interesting anymore for farmers. There are so many regulations, taxes and hindrance from the government and the E.U. that many try to find other ways of making a living. So you see more and more golf clubs coming in to existence. Golf used to be an exclusive way to spend your free time, now it is becoming more and more accessible for 'normal' people.

About the accident of yesterday, nobody was hurt. A man was looking bewildered at this car. Must be an odd experience....
I am always impressed with how things organised in Holland. Within 5 min the police and firemen were there, the highway blocked and 5 min more everything was gone as if nothing had happened.

As a one-time addicted golfer, I'm glad to note that it's becoming more accessible to "normal" folks...

I know a few farmers in this country have turned in their land into golf courses, too. But I think it takes a while to make a profit!

Very nice photograph!

Same deal over here. Only problem is that we need food, and not golfers to survive.
