Aussie driving range won’t let customers use Happy Gilmore swing


An Aussie golf range wants no part of your sophomoric efforts to swing like Happy Gilmore.

Aqua Golf in Hunter Valley, Aussie wine country located about two hours north of Sydney, has a driving range where players hit to targets floating in a lake. In fact, if players land their ball in one of the floating nets, they win a prize.

However, players have to swing conventionally. The Happy Gilmore swing is banned -- and has been for almost a decade -- and they have signage to remind everyone.
