Multiple rounds of showers and storms swept across Ohio over the last few days, and that created the perfect scenario for an incredible waterslide down the fairway of a golf course between Columbus and Akron.
A severe weather outlook was issued by the National Weather Service for parts of central Ohio according to an article from the Columbus Dispatch, warning of heavy rain that presented the chance for isolated flooding issues early and strong to severe storms.
The Weather Service noted that “strong to damaging” winds were the primary threat Monday, but tornadoes could not be ruled out.
But rather than sulking about the playing conditions a man at Black Diamond Golf Course in Millersburg used the opportunity to create the world’s largest fairway waterslide out of the course’s ninth hole. It made for quite the spectacle.

The course is famous for its 7th hole, which plays to a par 6 and can be extended to 720 yards from the tips.
