Unique Golf Course Tees Off Past Floods

GUERNEVILLE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A unique golf course in flood-friendly Guerneville, California, isn’t getting all washed up over a little ol’ flood.

The Pee Wee Golf course, which is known for its elaborate and bizarre sculptures at each of its 36 holes, is located in an area that is hit with Spring floods every year, which causes the course to flood and shut down for the greater part of the year.

However, each summer through Labor Day, the artsy, miniature green reopens its doors to putters, and owner Tom Glover says the course springs back as if the floods never happened.

Says Glover: “I hose down the sculptures and throw a paint party inviting people to come help repaint and touch-up the sculptures. There are no restrictions on how they paint them, which is what makes it fun, and the course always looks as good as new again.”

Once repainted, summer tourists flood in from all over the country to check out the sculptures and play some mini putt-putt.

Glover says, “People love the sculpture of the cannibals cooking a man in a pot because it makes them laugh, but the giant purple dinosaur is the most photographed hole on the course.”
