How to beat California’s golf course golf course in a game of golf
A game of Golf has been played in a California golf course for more than a decade, but it could soon become a reality.
Jerry Brown signed a bill Monday allowing residents to play a version of the game at the Papago Golf Course, which has been a popular destination for golfers for years.
The bill allows players to use a golf club or any other weapon to knock out a tree and play an 18-hole round, with the winner taking a $250,000 prize.
A few years ago, a couple who owned the golf course began hosting an annual tournament, but the event was scaled back in recent years because of a decline in sales.
The new law would allow the same event to go on without a tournament, which would make the event more popular and help the state generate revenue, Brown said in a statement.
The legislation is part of a $8.5 billion budget package Brown signed into law on Thursday.
It includes a package of $1.4 billion in tax cuts and other spending aimed at attracting new business.
