Afghan Open Held

Its an odd vision to imagine Pashtun Mountain men swinging 5 Irons in the rugged valleys of Afghanistan, but those are the visuals I saw this weekend on Fox News Sunday regarding this story on the Afghan Open being held for the first time in 30 years. The article does not state whether or not the various bombed out structures are in or out of bounds. Further, I wonder whether a club length is allowed if your ball rolls up next to a spent artillery shell. Either way, the Afghan course seems to offer sights not found on any course in the world. Not quoted in this article was the nugget from Fox that the entire course had been thoroughly searched and removed of land mines prior to the Open.
