The State Of The Greens

Look at the state of the greens! Dog-shit bins, and most golf courses have a hole in the form of a dog’s leg. A dogleg hole is one that bends, changing direction (dog-legging) at some point along its length. Dog walkers on golf courses are a common sight – as a great many golf courses are on common land; there’s a golf course near me, on Wimbledon common were dog walkers carry their dog’s shit in a plastic bag (often a see-through bag). I’ve never seen it happen but it must have: a dog cocking its leg on a golf flag marking a dogleg hole. And I’ve never bothered to weigh the average dog shit, but I imagine it weighs about the same as a golf ball.
