Florida (Strutts News Services) – Construction of the world’s largest miniature golf course began last week on the outskirts of Hacalugi, FL. Mr. Lannie Foosers, president of of Foosers Excavation, described the project as, “a virtual act of God. This is gonna be the greatest putt-putt golf course the world has ever seen, and we’re only on the first hole.”

However, construction has been temporarily halted. Hacalugi Councilwoman Tooncie Crumbler acknowledged the difficulties in getting approvals for the process. “It’s already a redevelopment district, so any improvement is, well, an improvement. After all, the first tee is a little over a quarter mile away. That’s a lot of land to manage.”

When asked about the schedule for the GMGC (Great Miniature Golf Course), Ms. Crumbler explained that the Hacalugi City Council was still working with the FAA to get approvals for a 422-foot tall windmill for the park. “Then, we’ll go on to the second hole,” explained Councilwoman Crumbler. “I hear that the par is going to be very challenging, but once you get to the green, no putters, no problem.”

The “Great Putt-Putt”, as it is known locally, is scheduled to officially open to the public sometime this century, maybe sooner. Or not.

    HA HA! Very funny Anita.

    And yet … sad … because even with a hole that size, I still wouldn’t get the darned ball in!

    Meh.

    All in good spirit, I guess, but this is black humour at its worst.

    People died in horrid conditions.

    Me laughs not.

    Quick, Anita! Change the byline back to yours so people think it’s funny again!

    flyermoney & jj– I posted the story about the world’s largest miniature golf course for the sheer absurdity of it. I needed a picture of a large hole in the ground to make the point. No offense intended.

    jj– The denizens of Hacalugi, Florida, including Mr. Foosers and Councilwoman Crumbler do not consider it to be a h++I45 place to live, and neither do I. I was not making fun of imaginary people and places intentionally.

    I apologize for the typographical error in the the second sentence.

    Oooh man! that is hilarious! yes, these events can be tragically sad, but when you work with geological hazards on a daily basis, you have to learn to take some humor in the events.. very nicely worded. . . but for those naysayers.. generally speaking, sinkhole events don’t kill people a lot of people. . more likely to be killed via driving, flying, drowning, bees, lighting, etc, etc. The sinkhole event pictures, a beauty, is from Guatemala, and I do believed it claimed 3 lives. Also, sinkholes are often triggered by humans. . . so. . natures wrath initiated by our own meddling.
