World Urban Golf Day 2009 (Three)
September 12, 2009
How it came to be…
It started off as a conversation between three cities that perhaps none believed would in the end encompass so many and has now turned into an event that over 12 countries will be involved in. Who would have thought that a bunch of urban golfers could organize such an event; we did.

This year we are not sure how many cities will be participating in their version of Urban Golf. What is Urban Golf you ask, imagine regular ole’ golf with a twist and a tennis ball. We play on the streets of cosmopolitan areas, in neighborhoods, on college campuses, in parks and in industrial wastelands. Holes can be any inanimate object and the length might be determined by watering holes, roadside attractions, busy streets and of course the law. There are no set rules that govern the sport or standardized equipment. A few aspects that are true to the sport no matter what country it is being played in are the feel of community among players and more than anything the love of the alternative sport itself.
