Play golf, substituting the ball with a shotput, and the club with your best throwing arm. Standard-sized golf course. Hole-shotput size ratio equal to current hole-golfball ratio.

       Substitute the club with a sledgehammer?

       Liberal use of the warning, "...FORE!!!..." highly recommended. [+]

       Given the hazard created by the backswing, it amazes me that golfers don't cry 'AFT!'

       The average shot put distance is on the order of 20 feet, and a golf drive can be a couple hundred yards or more. This would get really boring (not to mention physically exhausting) really fast. Why not start 100 feet or so away from the hole?

       You really think golf could get more boring, do you?

       If there were thirty times as much of it, sure.

       The ball should be an atlas stone, with the hole scaled up as before. The game can be played either hefting and tossing, or with a caber as a club.

       I like the imagery that brings to mind, Calum.
