Zombie Golf Giant

Field review by the editors.

Garrison, North Dakota

"Big Gene" is the gatekeeper at the Garrison City golf course entrance. Fifteen feet tall, made out of sheet metal; looks as if its inspiration was the robot in Colossus of New York. He clutches with both hands what looks like a giant pin stuck into his belt; it's a golf club.

If you think muffler men are creepy, check out Gene's zombie eyes. It's as if a five year old with sinister mind control powers forced the townspeople to build a giant play-pal.

Garrison is also known as the "Walleye Capital of the World."
