When Your Golf Game Is On Fire
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and soon arriving Jose, have dominated the news in recently, but there are also approximately 60 wildfires raging on the West Coast. One near Oregon's Columbia River Gorge created a couple of stunning pictures of golfers continuing to play as the area around them burned.
But as you might imagine, the wildfire is not as close to the golfers as it seems in the photos.
Golf Digest confirmed the course in the photos is Beacon Rock Golf Course, which is actually located in North Bonneville, Washington.
Beacon Rock's operations manager Mark Mayfield said,
there are no wildfires currently threatening the course.
The main reason the guys are still playing golf is that the wildfire is actually on the other side of the Colombia river away from the golf course.
At least I can say 1 thing.....these guys are serious about their golf...
