PERISCOPE ON GOLF COURSE GIVES VIEW OVER LOW HILL (Jun, 1933)

PERISCOPE ON GOLF COURSE GIVES VIEW OVER LOW HILL
Probably one of the most unusual golf devices in the world is on a Canadian course at Victoria, B. C. A small hill rises between the ninth and tenth holes, making it impossible for a golfer to see where to aim his ball. To remedy this difficulty, a periscope approximately twelve feet in height has been erected at the ninth hole, as illustrated at right. Before driving toward the hidden hole, a player gets his bearings by looking over the hill through the periscope.

    Couldn’t they just have installed a taller flag- stick at the hole?
