I saw Gerry Love playing golf on a municipal course near glasgow last summer.

He was using green golf balls!!!

interesting

i used to agree with this stance wholeheartedly but over the past couple of years have become a player and a fan.

it's a strange sport that has both addictive and repulsive elements. in scotland...the sport is very different to the rest of the UK/world...i.e. far more of a 'people's sport (with municipal courses, public links, etc.) but there are, of course, huge elements of elitism associated with private members clubs.

i know a lot of young-ish, 'creative' types (musicians, photographers, etc.) who play and who do not subscribe to any of the 'cliched' elements of the game...like the clothes, for example...and it can be an extremely enjoyable way to spend 4 hours.

i would say your perception of the game will depend a lot on where and when you've been exposed to it...and by whom.
can you hear those ringing bells?

I can't agree. I just think its boring. Personal view, that's all.

In general played by those that do other sports and use it to unwind (how but? it is sooo frustratingly, mind-numbingly, breath-takingly dull) or those who don't have the energy to do a proper sport.

I hate the elitism of the private clubs and there is a certain aspirational element amongst some of those on the municipal courses that I dislike even more intensely. I mean, why would you actually aspire to being one of those wankers up in the private club up the road?

Of course, in my career I have shot myself in the foot asit very much de rigeur and my mother despairs, but I'm not a bad player (18 holes in less than 100 shots having only played roughly twice in 4 years ain't bad in my book). I do enjoy the driving range, it has to be said. Wallop!

But I'd rather be drinking. That's a no-brainer.

I think Jimmy Tarbuck (well, the bloke off that show that did the voice over) said it best when he said "We have a difference of opinion here".

It is more troubling when people agree just for the sake of it. Stop stirring you low life and do some work.
