Golf Course Discovered to have been built over Cemetery

“You son of a bitch! You moved the cemetery, but you left the bodies, didn’t you? You son of a bitch, you left the bodies and you only moved the headstones! You only moved the headstones! Lies! Lies!

Although I don’t believe this golf course in Atlanta has been sucked into another dimension by angry spirits (yet) I’d probably think twice about playing all 18 holes. You see, what happened was, the city built this course in 1930 WELL aware that they were covering the graves (much like the guy Craig T Nelson is yelling at in the pic above from “Poltergeist”). But all this information was lost over the years until just recently when a map was uncovered confirming what were believed at this point to be nothing but spooky rumors.

The city doesn’t currently have plans to move the course and restore the graveyard, but I know I’d feel a little weird about playing there; especially since the graves are believed to be those of very poor who probably would look at a bunch of rich dudes playing GOLF on top of their final resting places to be A BIT insulting. Playing one stroke over par there might earn you a BogeyMAN.
