@alienghic @rysiek p sure that's how golf started. sheep herders clubbing sheep shit around a field.

@alienghic @rysiek Pretty sure you could also have a variant of golf that works on sand, just lighter balls.

Heh, that's where I live and well, our rivers got quite dry in some areas and fires are starting in forests quite often, sometimes also some towns.
