Haunted Golf Courses

I found a story about haunted golf courses when I was slogging through my backlog of Google alerts today and stumbled upon a posting by Stephen Wagner at About.com: Paranormal Phenomena called “The Latest Paranormal News.”

Wagner was listing ghost-related or otherwise odd stories he’d found, among them one entitled “Even golf courses have ghost stories” by Joe Morelli at the New Haven Register.

Apparently a book called Haunted Golf: Spirited Tales from the Rough was released this past April. It details incidents like the murder of a woman at a golf course in British Columbia whose spirit is said to haunt the seventh hole. Or the mysterious incidents at the Canton Golf Course in Connecticut. And, my personal fave because it reminds me of Cheeseman Park, the “remnants of corpses discovered at Lincoln Park [Golf Course] in San Francisco.”
I never would’ve thought of adding golf courses to the Jaunts listings. Or amusement parks or anywhere else people go for relaxation and fun. However, this has opened my eyes to a whole new dimension of Haunt Jaunt possibilities!

And I can’t help but wonder if any ghost hunters have ever investigated any golf courses? Hmmm…golf anyone?

  1. I've heard of some folks seeing shadowpeople on golf courses, but I suspect that those "things" show up just about anywhere. I think the reason people notice them more on the golf course is that they're outdoors and scanning the horizon frequently and are more apt to witness things. If an area is haunted, for instance, they're more likely to catch visual evidence of it than say someone in a park swinging on a swing with their back to the park. Golfers are more interactive with their environment. I don't think the golf course, per se, would be a more haunted location, just more likely to have alert witnesses.

  2. Thanks for making your image available, weirdvis!

    Lisa, Wayne keeps wanting me to go golfing with him. He'd probably want an early tee time, but your comment just gave me something new to think on, especially because of what Autumnforest said…

    I love haunt jaunting, but I try to avoid places with shadow people! I never would've thought of them being on a golf course. Gives me shivers!!!!!

    As usual, thanks for the great comments.
