  I have a good time whacking the tops off of weeds in my yard with a 1 iron.   That’s a practical application and a good use for a 1 iron.

That’s the most intelligent use of a 1 iron I’ve heard of in a looooong time.

A country club didn't allow women on the golf course. Eventually, there was enough pressure that they decided to allow women on the course during the week.

The ladies were satisfied with this arrangement, formed a women's club, and became active. After about 6 months, the club board received a letter from the women's club complaining about the men urinating on the golf course. Naturally, they just ignored the matter. After another 6 months, they received another letter reminding them of the previous letter and demanding action. After due deliberation they sent the women a letter advising them that they had been granted equal privileges!

Golf is about the only "sport"  where the average players are often in worse physical shape after playing than before

It can be really difficult to handle success.

I live in the Rookies. Golf courses are empty here. Except for the tourists. Even though there are some scenic courses locals hike and mountain bike  and fly fish in the summer.

Interesting. I know there is an expensive club at Deer Valley, and it serves a lot of the multimillionaires who ski there in the winter.

There is nothing casual about golf. On the one hand, almost anyone can be drafted to spend a day playing in the company shotgun tournament, and on the other, to even get close to a single digit handicap requires total devotion.

I some ongoing attention to golf at this site could be a lasting contribution, because the way it relates to our business could benefit a lot of us, even those who don't have time to pursue golf.

The guys that say it is stupid or has no useful purpose outside of immediate entertainment sound like someone who showed up for a bike race or a mountain climb with no preparation or experience, and were disappointed that they were left at the starting line, sour grapes.

In the case of those courses in the Rockies, I believe you have a playground for people who can afford to zip in with their skill set and enjoy a really stimulating and entertaining variation on their main hobby - if you are busy working in a ski resort or skiing all winter, and "distracted" by fly fishing and rock climbing and backpacking, I think it would be hard to ever get to the point where you could really enjoy golf.

There are several men in the locker room of a private club after finishing 18 holes. Suddenly a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:

"Hello?" "Honey, It's me."
"Sugar!"
"Are you at the club?"
"Yes."
"Great! I am at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a beautiful mink coat... It is absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"
"What's the price?"
"Only $1,500"
"Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much..."
"Ahhh and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2001 at a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."
"What price did he quote you?"
"Only $60,000..."
"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
"Great!, before we hang up, something else..."
"What?"
"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and...I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year ... it's on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English Garden, tennis court, acre of park area, beach front property..."
"How much are they asking?"
"Only $1,450,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover..."
"Well, than go ahead and buy it, but just bid $1,400,000. OK?"
"OK, sweetie... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"
"Bye... I do too..."
The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those present:
"Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
