Does golf need a gimmick ?
Media circus, mass marketing' gimmicks, weird putters ? o/priced yuppie drivers is this really the route to propping up the golf club system ? & who cares ? What about back to basics ? who is the important player in this game ? the pro or the amatuers that pays the bills ? How often does your 'resident pro' mix on course with other than same'o horse racing mates or ever play with members @ all unless payed for privilage ? Admitted starting roles & mundane work take time but get commision or retainer & once score golf shop on site with no competition & no statement of duties a protected species Grass root mite be wot its @ & once not uncommon the smart ones played @ random with different golfers or involved with kids potential customers future members Why bother easy leave it the marketeers & gimmicks of media circus why make any effort to follow mamber enquiry grizzle if equipment bought elswhere many entrenched & would not survive in the real world if it was not a 'closed shop' cynical view perhaps, & doubtless a few do differ, 'but' 10-4 good buddy ! donk
