I’m not sure if¬†it’s a craze that’s sweeping the nation, but it sure as hell¬†should be.¬†¬†Those of you who are not “in the know” about campus golf,¬†sit for a second and I’ll teach you the basics.

The Old Course at St. Andrews.  Its beautiful.  Its historic.  Its...overrated.

Campus golf is very similar to¬†“standard”¬†golf.¬† However, the one key difference is that, as the name suggests, it is played on school property.¬† So, instead of scratching up some serious¬†dough, throwing on¬†an old¬†polo and¬†some too-small¬†khaki pants, and finding a ride out to some local¬†country club where you (as a disheveled-looking, possibly hungover college student) don’t even feel welcomed, you simply grab some wedges and find a lawn.¬† No shoes?¬† No problem.¬† (Important note:¬†I discourage making the SU Quad your personal Carnoustie.¬† Somebody’s going to¬†wind up with¬†a beastly bruise, and you’ll¬†probably find yourself on the receiving end of litigation.¬†South Campus and its wide, open, mostly pedestrian-free¬†spaces are just a bus ride away.)
