Private golf clubs offering tee times to average duffers, "green" golf gifts for Christmas, and golf on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to TravelGolf.com’s Tom Spousta about why the financial crisis has made now the time to join a swish private golf club.
“Down in Naples (Fla.), there are several high-end clubs – clubs you couldn’t even get past the gate five or eight years ago – are now considering, at least part of the week, opening their courses to public play,” Spousta says. “It’s a matter of these courses can no longer bank on the baby-boomer retirees becoming a full-paying dues member any more.”
“The stereotype of golfers is not really of a bunch of environmentally-friendly folks walking around,” Christianson says. But “it might surprise people that there’s an increasing percentage of golfers who are concerned about the environment.”
Plus, Berner plays a clip from the popular television show “Whose Line is It Anyway?” lampooning golf.
