In a Hole, Golf Courses Experiment With 15-inch Holes

Shatrat Re:Expensive Middle Class Sport Losing Patrons (403 comments)

In a Hole, Golf Courses Experiment With 15-inch Holes

Shatrat Re:Nothing to do with hole size (403 comments)

I'd mod you up if I had points. Augusta National != Golf. The course down the road from me costs $9. Most of the others in the area range from $13 to $25. This is not an expensive hobby, compared to my other hobbies of home-brewing or motorcycling. My 'rich man' hobby is cheaper than my 'redneck' hobbies.
