Pasture Pool

The Barton golf course near Barton, Vt. is a country club in the truest sense—the fairways are mowed by cows. Only trouble is, the greens have to be fenced, and the fences protect them from approach shots as well as from cows. A local rule neatly solves this problem. Members have agreed that any shot that hits a cow, wire or a post within 50 yards of the green must be replayed.
