Memorial Seat Overload
By Kickntrue on 12/28/09
Golf courses are being overrun by dead people, well, the chairs people buy in honor of their past golfing loved ones.
The seats are becoming so common that some course managers are trying to persuade relatives wanting to purchase a seat to sponsor trees on courses instead.

One course in Kent has so many seats - which vary in price and can cost several hundred pounds - that it has been forced to introduce a rota system which allows only a set number of chairs on the grounds at any one time.

The rest have to be stored away.

Charles Maxted, secretary of Sittingbourne Golf Club said: “The club have a large number of benches that have been kindly donated over the years, indeed we do have too many to put them all out at once.
I can't say I've ever been to a course that has more than a couple memorial chairs, but I can see how over time this would be a problem. I have a better idea though... send ME the money and I will memorialize your loved one with a post on oobgolf that will live forever online!

I think they should start doing this with outhouses/port-a-potties. Sometimes there just isn't enough tree covering to safely pee privately.
