North Korea To Hold Amateur Golf Tournament

imageIt’s one of the world’s most repressive regimes, the people starve and from space, North Korea is one of the few dark spots at night. But North Korea has got the resources to sponsor a amateur golf tournament. The North Korea Open debuts April 26-30, 2011 in Pyongyang.

Or does it? I’m not entirely convinced that this isn’t a joke.

It reminds me of a story from 2006 in which the North Korean propagandists claimed that their diminutive madman dictator Kim Jong Il had finished 38 under par in his first round of golf, including 5 holes in one.
