    Default Swing sticks, a good walk spoiled

    Both of those terms is what I have heard as a description of Golf.

    I have played one full game in my life and drove a bucket of balls regularly in my teens.


    BIL loves, as one author said (Was it Twain) a good walk spoiled. He worked in the autoparts industry and would regularly go for games at the local city ranges where membership would be something like $500 and walk on fees were $18 to $20

    Now he has his sticks shipped down and he is looking for a place to play. He only found 2 - One open, one being built. The one that is open is charging 10,000 a year for membership and no walk-ons. The other being built is $15000/yr and walk-ons will be allowed at $1,200.

    Needless to say, his clubs are stowed for the foreseeable future.

    I played just about every day as a teen, and loved it,, my father was in the Air Force and it was free. Nine holes. No carts,, good exercise.



    I just kind of lost interest (story of my life).
