That's right my friends ... seems driving an SUV is only one hazard.

Golf balls: 'Humanity's signature litter'

I can see the protesters lining up outside your favorite country club Rolling Eyes

It's kind of interesting that they make biodegradable golf balls.

"The scale of the dilemma was underlined recently in Scotland, where scientists -- who scoured the watery depths in a submarine hoping to discover evidence of the prehistoric Loch Ness monster -- were surprised to find hundreds of thousands of golf balls lining the bed of the loch. "

Laughing I can only imagine the look on their faces. But when you think about it, it makes sense.

I always said the Loch Ness Monster sightings were a lot of balls.

(As a Scot, though, I think, what kind of Scotsman doesn't dive in after hitting a ball into a water hazard? Those things are expensive!)

I should be able to enjoy a round of golf without having to worry about wrecking the environment, even though I've got the balls to do it. Laughing Laughing Laughing

I work in one of America's "golf mecca's" (Pinehurst, NC) and I never cease to be amazed at how many golf balls are n the medians and sides of the roads. In one 3-mile stretch I typically see 8-10 at 6:30 AM, which I suppose means they were left overnight. They're always gone when I head home in the evenings. I bet some kids grab them and resell them.
