We are all too familiar with wild fires and fire season here in Southern California and if you’re a follower of SOCAL Golfer you’re most likely a golf nut. So here’s the question: Would you golf during a fire?
Photos have surfaced on Golf Digest (per Reddit) of golfers in Oregon playing with a wild fire raging in the background! I’ve been evacuated from one fire threatening my home in my tenure as a SOCAL resident (14 years) and I can tell you that even being within a 1-2 mile radius I could feel the heat… and the fire I’m referring to is the one that allegedly a GOLFER PUT OUT HIS CIGAR under a tree at La Costa which started the flames (be smarter than that please). I’m all for getting my round in whenever I can but this is insane! I’ll give them credit though …that fire is actually across the Columbia River from them so there is a body of water separating them from the flames. That being said, wind is wind and we’ve seen our fires jump and spread rapidly.
So… would you golf during a fire?
