Jeff Anderson commented, "This takes pasture golf to a whole new level, doesn't it?" Here's the link to this UK Telegraph feature titled, "When playing golf at Kabul, keep your head down and aim left of howitzers," filed on 11/1/02.
It's not PastureGolf, in fact it's not golf at all, it's polo. Not equine polo or water polo, either. We're talking elephant polo here and we have no idea if the sport's inventor, James Manclark, is any relation to Pasture Golf's Bruce Manclark, but the description of him by his friend in this story, as "a bit of a nut case" leads us to believe that they have to be related.
