Ground golf is a sport played here in Japan. It was devised for elderly players to enjoy golf like sport without the long walks, high prices of golf courses and to inspire a sense of community. It is played all over the country in parks that have enough space for the 8 holes, although the pictures here show more, I believe I saw at least 14 holes. I do know there are many people playing this game in groups, each group with its own clip board for keeping score. Most of the players I would judge to be over 70, easily, and many over 80. Here they are playing in 34C temps in Wakamiya Park, Hakusan City, Ishikawa.
