Cemetery Mini-Golf

Because I want my headstone to be a windmill obstacle

Cemeteries are such useless wastes of otherwise good real estate. Why not incorporate them into largeish miniature* golf courses? Rightly designed headstones could be incorporated as arches, embankments, angle-boards, and mounds. I call dibs on the 18th hole windmill headstone.

*(as opposed to smallish full-size)

Lawn Darts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawn_darts
apparently a thing in younger countries [calum, Jun 18 2012]

[Matty]'s Golf_20Cemetery
[po]'s link is to a previous incarnation of this idea I think. [2 fries shy of a happy meal, Jun 18 2012, last modified Jun 19 2012]

The idea [2 fries] refers to http://web.archive....n_20of_20(anything)

       Good [+].   

       Even better if it's possible to nominate those who are to occupy "holes".   

       Superb if it's possible to nominate those who are to occupy "holes", and they're not dead yet.

       Hmm, I dunno. Would family members play free?

       I knew I was going to bun this just by the title, and wasn't disappointed by the text.

       i think you would have to offer more recreational options for the non golf type _ darts _ snooker _
gizmo, Jun 17 2012
  

       ... croquet?   

       Lawnmower racing?

       Lawn darts is a natural. An accurate throw could be rewarded with a pre-recorded "Ow! - Bloody hell!"

       [+] excellent!
Do we have to bring our own clubs or can we rent some from the cemetery guy?
xandram, Jun 18 2012
  

       AusCan, now I really wish I would've thought of that.
RayfordSteele, Jun 18 2012
  

       Brilliant.   

       Better land use, and pays for graveyard maintainance.   

       If course edging/hazard gravestones were designed to fit together in a modular fashion, patrons could pay to reserve their space and have their name engraved during their lifetime.
Although then the problem is that courses would be out of commision while the ground recovered after each entry.

       I'm headed for the specimen jars in my local university's anatomy department. I'm going to request a surrealist text accompanies each latin description. Example:
"Stomach of angled twig,
brain containing reef knot,
death by bicycle-cactus intrusion"

       ... "half-baked to death" ...

       This looks suspiciously like [2fries] Cemetery Golf. <link>
UnaBubba, Jun 18 2012
  

       No no, not mine, [Matty]'s.   

       My bad. Still, the idea of Cemetery Mini Golf is mentioned in the idea body. Smells redolent of redundancy, I fear.
UnaBubba, Jun 18 2012
  

       I did "golfatary" many years ago. It went phoof along with me, or one of my incarnations I should say.
blissmiss, Jun 19 2012
  

       If I may so forward, exactly how often _do_ you phoof?

       Mini-golf is a pleasant outing with the family. It's bastard derivitive, golf, on the other hand, is how the Scottish kept the intrusion of civility at bay.
RayfordSteele, Jun 19 2012
  

       I would like my rear end to be coated in some sort of resin and be buried in such a way so that my posterier protrudes from the ground. People can then celebrate my life by letting a 6 year old smack a brightly coloured golf ball into my backside in the hope of a hole in one and a free soft drink.
S-note, Jun 19 2012
  

       Alterother, no more phoofs. I have matured. (Somewhat).
blissmiss, Jun 19 2012
  

       May I recommend prune juice?
RayfordSteele, Jun 19 2012
  

       Like a good wine, [blissy]. The tannins have all settled into a leg, or legs and the alcohol level has stabilised?
