This weekend a virus spread through my family‚ its name is Pokemon Go. My husband downloaded it first. My son was next. I followed shortly thereafter. My daughter‚ who is obsessed with the battery life on her phone‚ would not even consider putting it on her phone as it would surely use more than she could handle.
While playing you discover that Pokemon are found most often in places like parks and local landmarks. We live on the Jersey Shore so a walk along the boardwalk was very fruitful. However the fact that they could be found anywhere made me concerned‚ could they be randomly found on golf courses?
The simple answer is yes‚ there are Pokemon on your golf course. This is going to cause problems at first‚ but it could be a blessing in disguise.
In case you have been living in a cave‚ golf has been struggling to bring new people to the sport. There have been several ideas golf courses have tried to help pay the bills. Footgolf and Discgolf are bringing a few new faces and greens fees but force courses to make changes to the greens. Could charging a “walking fee” to Pokemon Go users who want to wander the course help pay the bills?
It is an idea. Let’s just hope that random people do not wander onto the green before courses can get a handle on this situation.
