Amusing Golfing Tales
Ralph was a smooth operator, and at Southwick Golf Club's annual dance he attached himself to the prettiest lady golfer in the room and began boasting to her.
'You know,' smarmed Ralph, 'the other members are all afraid to play me. What do you think my handicap is?'
'Well, where do you want me to start, Ralph?' Came her quick response.
After a particularly bad round of golf, Robert decided not to go to the nineteenth hole [the clubhouse bar] and started to go straight home.
As he was walking to the golf car park to get his Range Rover, a policeman stopped him and asked', Did you tee off on the seventeenth hole about twenty minutes ago?'
'Yes', Robert answered
'Did you happen to slice your ball so that it went over the trees and out of bounds and completely off the golf course?'
'Yes, I did. How did you know?' Robert questioned.
'Well', said the policeman gravely', Your golf ball flew out onto the main road and crashed through the windscreen of a BMW. The car driver lost control and crashed into six other cars and a fire engine. The fire engine was unable to reach the fire in time and the building burned down. Now, what do you intend to do about it?'
Robert thought it over very carefully and responded', I think I'll close my stance a little bit, tighten my grip and lower my right thumb.'
It was a sunny Saturday morning on the
Crookhorn municipal golf course in England, and I was beginning my pre-shot routine, visualising my upcoming shot, when a voice came over the clubhouse tannoy:
I was still deep in my routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption. Again the announcement rang out louder', Would the MAN on the WOMEN'S tee kindly back up to the men's tee.'
I simply ignored the request and kept concentrating, when once more, the man yelled', Would the man on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee, PLEASE.'
I finally stopped, turned, looked through the clubhouse window directly at the person with the microphone and shouted back', Would the person in the clubhouse kindly stop shouting and let me play my second shot'

Here is a golf story from the Second World War [1939-1945], a time when many Golf courses in the UK were given over to growing vegetables for a beleaguered population.
However, nothing, not even war, could stop the British from playing golf as this list of rules indicates. Here in outer London, England, in Richmond, Surrey we have searched the history archives and found this sign which was placed around the Richmond Golf course warning players of war related problems.
Will and Guy have been unable to ascertain whether this document is accurate or not. If it isn't then it ought to be says Will.
Golf In World War II
German aircraft from Norway would fly on missions to northern England; because of the icy weather conditions, the barrels of their guns had a small dab of wax to protect them. As they crossed the coast, they would clear their guns by firing a few rounds at the golf courses. Golfers were urged to take cover.

Peter is a testament to material values, decked out as he is in the latest golf fashion, with a brand new set of clubs and all the accoutrements.
God, in contrast, is a picture of virtue wearing his old gardening clothes and trailing a tatty old canvas bag with a real mixture of ancient and rusting clubs, some of which even have hickory shafts.
On the first hole St Peter smacks a beauty 275 yards straight down the middle.
It only travels about 70 yards but just before it's about to stop a rabbit runs out of the gorse, grabs the ball in its mouth and hurtles off down the fairway while St Peter watches in astonishment.
Before the rabbit can reach safety, however, a magnificent eagle swoops down and snares the rabbit in its talons before rising majestically, the rabbit still struggling in its grasp but defiantly holding the golf ball in its mouth.
As the eagle soars over the green a bolt of a lightning from a clear blue sky strikes it, killing the bird instantly. It drops the rabbit, which in turn drops the golf ball, which strikes a sprinkler head at the side of the green and takes one bounce straight into the hole for an ace on a par-5 hole.
St Peter slowly turns and says to God: 'Are you going to show off all day or are we here to play golf?'
Alex and Jim are trying to get in a quick eighteen holes, but there are two terrible lady golfers in front of them hitting the ball everywhere but where it's supposed to go.
Alex comments to Jim, 'Why don't you go over and ask if we can play
Jim replies, 'One of them is my wife, and the other is my mistress.'
He gets about halfway there and he turns and comes back, too.
Alex murmurs, 'Small world.'
Elgin Golfer Scores Hole-in-One Twice in One Round.
We have a report of a golfer who has defied estimated odds of 67 million-to-one to score two holes-in-one in the same round.
Mr Rob Tyson had never managed a hole-in-one before his double recently Will and Guy have discovered. The 67 year old used his six iron to score his first ace on the fourth hole, then took nine shots on the next due to the excitement.
However, he more than made up for the blip when he used the six iron again for another hole-in-one on the seventh. Mr Tyson is reported to have said, 'I've been playing golf for 35 years and have never had a hole in one.'
Will and Guy congratulate Mr Tyson on his amazing feat.
A retired corporate executive, now a widower, decided to take a vacation He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life, that is, until the ship sank. He found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts.
After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore.
In disbelief, he asks', Where did you come from? How did you get here?' She replies', I rowed from the other side of the island. I landed here when my cruise ship sank.' Amazing', he notes.' You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up with you.' Oh, this thing?' explains the woman. 'I made the boat out of raw material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum tree branches. I wove the bottom from palm branches, and the sides and stern came from a Eucalyptus tree.'
'But, where did you get the tools?' Oh, that was no problem', replied the woman.' On the south side of the island, a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into ductile iron. I used that for tools and used the tools to make the hardware.' The guy is stunned.
'Let's row over to my place', she says.
After a few minutes of rowing, she docks the boat at a small wharf. As the man looks to shore, he nearly falls off the boat. Before him is a stone walk leading to an exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white.
While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into the house, she says casually', It's not much, but I call it home. Sit down, please. Would you like a drink?' No! No thank you', he blurts out, still dazed. 'I can't take another drop of coconut juice.' It's not coconut juice', winks the woman. 'I have a still. How would you like a Pina Colada?' Trying to hide his continued amazement, the man accepts, and they sit down on her couch to talk.
After they have exchanged their stories, the woman announces', I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There is a razor upstairs in the bathroom cabinet.' No longer questioning anything, the man goes into the bathroom. There, in the cabinet, a razor made from a piece of tortoise bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened on to its end inside a swivel mechanism.
'This woman is amazing', he muses.' What next?' When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but vines, strategically positioned, and smelling faintly of gardenias. She beckons for him to sit down next to her.
'Tell me', she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him', We've been out here for many months. You've been lonely. There's something I'm sure you really feel like doing right now, something You've been longing for?' She stares into his eyes.
He can't believe what he's hearing.' You mean .. ' he swallows excitedly and tears start to form in his eyes.
'Don't tell me you've built a Golf Course!!!'
