The Scholss Auel Golf Club near Cologne, Germany, splashed out £175,000 on the smooth-running walkway after its management were inspired by watching ski lifts carry people to the top of the slopes.

Anything but par for the course, the conveyor belt is said to be the first of its kind by the golf club.
As is the case with many golf clubs a per centage of its 1,200 members are elderly and they are particularly pleased with the innovation.
But the 98ft-long walkway takes members to the summit of a 30ft hill between the first green and the second tee which had left even the younger members out of puff.

If the place ever goes belly up, they can always turn it into the worlds largest open air supermarket.

Now we know what those military robots were doing before the mess in Japan. They were busy building a golf course and livestock conveyor.
