Golf - Women's Membership

Post by legendkillar on Sun Jul 10, 2016 10:08 am

The Open kicks off this week at Royal Troon. Troon like Murifield does not allow women members and Murified risks now losing its hosting privileges for the Open as a result. Troon might well be faced with the same.

What's your view on this? Do you think it's about time golf moved with the times?

I know nothing about golf except the details of Woods' and Rory's spicy love life... Run

I also view golf as a hobby/gentle game for people who can't play "proper" sport Cool

Like afternoon tea for networkng businessmen: a bit of fresh air in nice peaceful surroundings...anything else?

Laugh Laugh

Oddly enough NITB it's a tough sport to master! An expensive one at that. I've played over the years. For the reason that when I can't play tennis, least I can play golf on me own LaughLaugh

A lot of courses have rules regarding women having membership at clubs. Shame tennis doesn't have a strong character on the female side like tennis did with BJK. 

It does make me laugh that Wentworth Golf Club charges £100K per annum for membership!! Never getting on that course!

I dunno, I've never been attracted to real golf (though I was not bad at put-put golf the few times I had to play), so I can't comment on behalf of women.

The game is too static and monotonous.

I mean, when you compare it to tennis...everything pales into oblivion.

As for the snobbery appeal and silly membership fees, I suppose that proves my point it's just business entertainment/dinner...al fresco!

Tennis has the gladiatorial effect. Mano a Mano. 

Golf doesn't have that as per se. Like darts or snooker they would tell you to play the course and not the field. 

It is difficult to master. The margins are finite. Scenic it's breathtaking at times.

It does have a degree of elitism. Similar to tennis. Both sports I feel need to reach out further and bridge the gaps to other parts of society.

The club should probably turn "mixed" but I don't like when we force it from outside for financial or PC reasons.  Let this club decide what they want. ....so that men players can decide whether they wish to be part of it or not too. 

It's not the only club that is men or women only in this world...this one happens to be about golf....others might be about Roman bath.
