YOU CAN ONLY PRACTICE WITH THE ‘REAL’ GOLF BALL IF YOU WANT TO LEARN GOLF…Wrong…wrong…wrong Ben Hogan once said that the only way to practice golf is with a golf ball.

GUNS AND GOLF….  AAAAAHHHHHHH! Get a life! Yes, this is officially ‘off-the-golf-course’ so I feel compelled to share it with you.

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE: (the real title of the video is: Shady Pines Non-Developed Urban Golf Association Of Dalarna) I just had to fire out an entry about this video.

GOLFATHON vs. WALKATHON: A new way to fundraise affordably

Walkathons and Golfathons are an easy and proven way for an organization to raise needed funds. Your participants don’t need any special skills or training.

ONE EXCELLENT GOLF BLOOPER COMMERCIAL: Wouldn’t happen with crossgolf

ONE EXCELLENT GOLF BLOOPER COMMERCIAL: Wouldn’t happen with crossgolf

I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS BLOOPER: I saw this one about a year ago. Needless to say with the new off-course golf ball technology used by the OC Golfers Network, such an experience is impossible.

OLD SCHOOL URBAN CROSSGOLF IN A PARKING LOT: Ikea style

OLD SCHOOL URBAN CROSSGOLF IN A PARKING LOT: Ikea style

PARKING GARAGE GOLF: The thing I really like about this video is not that Klaus was taking shots off parking lot roofs or hitting the synthetic greens with computer monitors as greens, but that he put a circle around the ball so you could see it. This has not become a standard with all the [...]

WELCOME TO A CHARITY GOLF FUNDRAISER WHERE YOU KEEP ALL THE MONEY…Because there is no golf course rental fee…because your campus is the golf course.     PROBLEM: Traditional golf fundraisers cost a lot of money to produce, and there is no guarantee that you will make your deposit money back if people don’t come.

Ironstock CrossGolf Open 2010 is a wrap. Once again they did it in style.

TRUE HARDCORE STREETGOLF through Paris

TRUE HARDCORE STREETGOLF through Paris

This is a StreetGolfing as you can possibly get. I don’t recommend it for the US Cross or urbangolfer because our legal system and social temperment would most likely not approve. But what a shame.

DUTCH URBANGOLF: Hot blondes make the difference

DUTCH URBANGOLF: Hot blondes make the difference

This was clearly a golf promotion to a bunch of folks who basically ride bikes and have never seen either end of a golf club. The best part is the editing and the boxer checking out the flying balls. I know he wanted to jump off his leash and consume every ball they were hitting.

URBAN GOLF IN BELGIUM GOES VERY STREET: Aalst

URBAN GOLF IN BELGIUM GOES VERY STREET: Aalst

This one is a real toss up between urban and StreetGolf. Yes, this is called an urbangolf video and yes, it is urban, so this is an urbangolf video, but streetgolf has to be the subset because they are playing down a aweful lot of streets. Some are nicely cobbled so that your putting becomes [...]
