Round of Golf!
The "Greens" are White... The Balls are Red...
The "greens" are white and the balls are red, but otherwise ice golf is similar to regular golf. Golf clubs with a steel shaft are best in the cold and you have to carry your golf bag - carts and trolleys can't be used on the course.
The ocean interacts with the weather and the formation of icebergs to create the general framework for the course, which is laid out in March on the fjord ice. Its shape is determined largely by the positions of icebergs in the fjord.
You have to be prepared for practically anything when it comes to the weather in Greenland. In March, when the world ice golf championships are held, the average temperature is about -14°C (7°F), but temperatures as low as -25°C ( -13°F) can occur. However, the cold feels less bitter than one might expect, due to the dry climate and the strong sunshine.
