Caddyshackpocalypse Later, Dogpocalypse Now

It's been quiet of late at Reston National Golf Course a property of indeterminate zoning status vaguely near a future Metro station. But while the giant insurance conglomerate that owns it is no longer battling community groups and the RA to allow the golf course to be redeveloped into more bollardy goodness -- at least for now -- they've set their sights on another, equally worthy adversary.

Confidential Restonian Operative "Mary Anne" sent us these chilling photos of new signage that was apparently put up around the golf course in the past week.


No words. Let's just hope that the signs are all the groundskeepers are planning:


  1. I guess this begs the question... where do the golfers pee?

    1. LOL. I knew it wasn't the dogs.

    I thought the Yellow Menace was only in Communist China...or the kiddie swimming pool.

    Besides, that dog in the sign looks like it's doing #2, not #1.

  3. Golfers go in the woods. Except along the third and fourth holes, which for years had a wonderful [simiilar[ sign with a picture of a crossed-out picture of a golfer peeing.

    It's the golfers. I definitely saw a golfer peeing onto a tree while I drove past him on South Lakes Drive a couple years ago. And I know a guy on Hunters Green Court who had to build a fence for screening because so many golfers were relieving themselves right next to his backyard.

  5. So, not only do we blame the dogs for that otherwise sudden and unexplainable stench at the dinner table, but now we're blaming them for the yellow grass at the golf course?

    I tell you what. When you find my name written in the snow in front of RA HQ, "It wasn't me. The dog must have done it."

    I walked over to the crime scene and decided that had to be one huge sized heffer relieving herself of of a 20 gallon drum of urine.

    I'm thinking gasoline burns from the golf course mowers. If dogs were urinating in that area off of the putting green, the daily watering of the greens would surely dilute the urine.

    I rest my case. The dogs are innocent!

  7. It's not the dogs, it's the golfers! My neighbors' dogs pee in my side yard all the time and the results don't look like the golf course burn-outs at all! And that big spot of dead grass? Probably a gasoline or fertilizer spill....

  8. Ah, just this morning I saw a dog relieving itself in the rough near a wooded it appears there are plenty of suspects.
