This summer, Harold decided he loves to play golf. His swing wasn't too bad to be honest. He can hit the golf balls farther and more consistently than I can, not that that is saying much but hey I was still pretty impressed.
A few years ago we bought a little piece of property, less than an acre, across the road from the cabin in Minnesota. Someday we hope to build a large shop there but we have been looking for a way to use the property in the meantime.
And that's when we got a genius idea . . . let's build a golf course.
As you will see, Harold did a large amount of the work with just a little guidance from dad.
Here's step by step how to build your own golf course:
Start by mowing down a field of grass on a piece of land you are otherwise not sure how to use.
Next cut a few pieces of PVC pipe. A larger one for the golf ball hole and a smaller one to hold the flag poles.
Zip tie the small pipe inside of the larger pipe.
Cut out flags. For this project we used a brightly colored shower curtain.
Dig a hole.
Place pipe in the hole and pack the dirt around the pipe.
Stick that flag in the ground.
And you're all set to play a round of golf at your leisure.
