Golf hole

The reasoning behind the golf hole is relatively it was meant for practicing golfing. But the type of golfing varies for uses depending on how large your yard if it suburban than putting and to chip it in. But if you live in rural area than you could easily just play a full round of golf. The Mason jar golf hole is pretty simple the jar is to make sure that the hole stays like a pretty standard golf and the dirt doesn't shift. The flag is to show where the hole is which is attached to dowel that was run through lid, which allows easy removal of the lid. The lid is to keep out the rainwater and bug that may want to crawl in to the hole. The blackish wax is just children crayon mean it to anchor so the flag won't get knocked over by wind. The cloth that you see once you lift the lid off is just to catch the ball and transfer the energy to fastener, which means for the most part that is highly unlikely for the jar to shatter only unless the cloth wasn't secured properly.
