A golf club is positioned near a ball as a boy plays a game near the beach in Gargaresh area in Tripoli September 17, 2013. Among the rubbish-strewn bushes and occasional bullet shells on the rocky ground, nine flimsy flags flapping in the breeze mark the holes of a golf course along Tripoli's Mediterranean coast. The occasional volley of automatic rifle fire in the distance is yet another of the unique "hazards", and a reminder of the chaos that still reigns in many parts of Libya. The course is mostly empty except for a few workers building what one day may become a clubhouse and a dog sniffing discarded water bottles, fish bones and trash peppering the fairway. This is not the lush greenery of Augusta or St Andrews but for Libya's golf fans the small course in the capital's upmarket Gargaresh area is one of a handful where they can get a game.
