Some occasions just need to be commemorated. That’s exactly what the folks at Saddleback Golf Club in Firestone, Colorado did when one of the most unlikely of scenarios unfolded.

The backstory to the sign didn’t disappoint, either. USA Today’s For the Win had the details.
Here’s how the story goes, as told by KUSA in Colorado: This August a husband and wife went to a golf tournament at Saddleback Golf Club. The wife, who was accompanying her husband but not playing, decided she wanted to drive the golf cart. The husband initially refrained because — in his words — she was a “terrible driver.”
A few holes later, the golf cart was in the lake.
On hole four, Clay said the wife hopped in the driver’s seat and tried to navigate a roundabout while dodging parked golf carts.
“When she went to hit the brake, she accidentally hit the gas and confirmed her husband’s suspicions that she was not a very good driver,” Clay said.
Now, there’s a sign commemorating it all.
