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?
