Fairway to Heaven? Cemetery Offers Burial On Golf Hole

Augusta National banned Gary McCord from Masters broadcasts after McCord suggested, among other things, that there might be bodies buried under the sundry humps and bumps of Augusta. Now, a Seattle-area funeral home and cemetery plans to literally bury deceased golfers under a golf course. Or a golf hole, anyway. Sunset Hills Memorial Park and Funeral Home in Bellevue, Wash., has created the Memorial Golf Park, which Sunset Hills says is "the nation's first golf-themed memorial park." If you're one of those people who is always dying to play golf, this might be for you. The Memorial Golf Park consists of one golf hole, complete with tee box, fairway, bunker and putting green. Including both full-casket burial plots and cremation placements, 1,281 golfers can be buried on the hole. Or, to put it another way, 320 fourballs plus one single. That poor single. He's always going to be waiting, and always asking to play through. (No fivesomes allowed in heaven!)
