It's not often that a hazard on a golf course can also serve as a hazard to your health (unless you're playing a course where the water hazards are populated by angry alligators).
But Traigh Golf Course in the West Highlands of Scotland has a new feature it'd rather not have -- a 14-foot sinkhole just in front of its seventh green.
According to a report from Golf News Net, the recently-formed sinkhole came about as the result of a drainpipe failure in November 2014.
The report says that the club estimates the repair -- fixing the drainpipe and filling in the sinkhole -- would cost approximately $30,000. That's money the club doesn't have.
Club spokesman Alec Stewart said, "Without repairing this pipe about half of the golf course will revert to bog and this would effectively be the end of our golf course."
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time we've seen a golf/sinkhole story.
Back in March of 2013, an 18-foot deep sinkhole on a course in Illinois swallowed a golfer who was walking down the middle of a fairway. Luckily, he was pulled out of the sinkhole after a frightening 20-minute rescue mission.
