You would never expect THIS to happen on a golf course!

Hopefully no one was golfing when the ground opened up underneath a golf course last week. It would have been terrifying to see the ground suddenly disappear underneath you.

NBC News reports,

Four sinkholes opened up at the Top of the Rock Golf Course in Ridgedale, Missouri, on Friday, reported the Springfield News-Leader. The largest was 60 feet by 80 feet wide, and 35 feet deep.

The biggest sinkhole started near the practice range at about 6:30 a.m., and kept growing, reported NBC affiliate KYTV. No injuries were reported. Inspectors were on the scene, trying to figure out the best way to fill the holes.

Let’s hope the club had good insurance. When man runs up against acts of God, man isn’t likely to come out ahead – and insurance companies are well aware of that.
