Watch How a 9 Hole Golf Course is Managed in the Barren Land of Native America

In the sprawling vast landscape of the Navajo Nation deep in Native American territory lies a 9-hole golf course that, were you not to know it was there, would not be openly visible to the naked eye. It’s a most rugged and largely inhospitable terrain coupled with a dry and arid environment.

So it’s really quite remarkable that a family with time on their hands and nothing much to do in the way of hobbies managed to construct a golf course using the naturally occurring plants, rocks and sage bushes as obstacles and initially using pieces of old carpet to emulate the speed and nature of traditional greens.

The course has become incredibly popular and is free to use, prompting the family to make some upgrades and improvements. The result is a stronger sense of community and a focus for many who have little else to do.
