Close-Up: A round on one of the world's most dangerous golf courses


It's in one of the world's most dangerous countries and is arguably the most challenging golf course in the world.

Kabul Golf Club was the scene of fighting in the 1990s. Some of the holes were made by landmines, and rocket-launchers and tanks had to be removed to make it playable.

The BBC's Quentin Sommerville played a round on Afghanistan's only golf course.

The Close-up series focuses on aspects of life in countries and cities around the world. What may seem ordinary and familiar to the people who live there can be surprising to those who don't.
