Maybe you’ve heard about the golf club in Norway that had a long-standing problem with fecal graffiti.

Now, the Stavanger Golf Club is finally taking a load off.

For over a decade after 2005, a mystery pooper regularly left number 2s where others made holes in 1.

What we know about the crap controversy

News site Rogaland Avis interviewed then-Stavanger Golf Club groundskeepers Kenneth Tennfjord and Frode Jormeland, and managing director Steinar Floisvik. The employees offered insights into the issue, which UPI also covered in detail.

Here’s what we know from the accounts:

The pooper’s motive was unknown. “Our idea is that it could be someone who, for unknown reasons, hates the game of golf. Alternatively, the person may have a fetish or suffer from mental problems.”

The pooper was likely a man, “”because the poos are too massive to be from a woman.”

The pooper didn’t defecate everywhere. Rather, he had “a couple of favorite holes.”

The pooper didn’t visit on the weekends. “He poos only on weekdays.”

The pooper cycled, then got the runs. “In the early morning dew we observed bicycle tracks on the course. Footsteps showed that he had done his business, and the bicycle tracks disappeared back the way they came.”

The pooper evaded the club’s initial attempts to stop them. They included installing flood lights. “He climbed up a tree next to the lights and wriggled far out on a branch and dismantled the spotlights. How he managed the feat without electrocuting himself or falling is a riddle.”

The [fecal] matter has now been resolved

Apart from the poopetrator’s identity, another question remains unanswered, though. How did this debacle last for over a decade?

We spoke to Stavanger Golf Club in December of 2020 to find out. But all a spokesperson told us was, that “the matter was resolved by itself when the walking paths surrounding the course got night lights.”

No matter what, we assume the golf club had a hard time holding it in.

Their happiness when the problem ended, of course.
