    Extreme golf is played on environmentally sustainable alternatives to traditional courses. A cross between hiking and golf, the course layout exposes players to a wide range of natural obstacles and challenging terrains. You can build golf courses with little or no interruption of the native landscape and you don’t even need grass.

    Are we to assume these walls have a net environmental benefit. Their are costs associated with golf courses. For decades in America we’ve had issues with Sunbelt states building larger and more outlandish courses in drought prone areas. They occasionally impede corridors for migrating animals and sanctuaries for birds and other wildlife, though courses frequently become havens for native and non-native creatures. Many Western countries have instituted environmental restrictions on where and how courses can be built. Golf is perceived by some as elitist, and thus golf courses become a target for popular opposition. Resisting golf tourism and golf’s expansion has become an objective of some land-reform movements. Now I’m all for private property rights still there are some risks for a simple game of golf.
