Most every golfer wants to go to Scotland and play the Old Course at St. Andrews. However, for myriad reasons, it’s typically not a simple trek, even for folks who live close to the Home of Golf. So, what’s a golfer to do?
Luke Donald shared one golfer’s solution on Instagram, snapping a picture of someone’s backyard in which they’ve constructed a near-perfect replica of the Road Hole bunker on the Old Course.
For a point of comparison, here’s the real thing:
The world’s most famous bunker, the Road Hole bunker guards the green on the 17th hole. The green was widened ahead of the 2010 Open at St. Andrews, expanded almost two feet, with the green sloped so that it could potentially catch more poor shots from behind the green.
This is an absolutely amazing feature in this person’s backyard and should really improve the resale value. Then again, the owner is a golfer living at St. Andrews, so why ever move?
