Crikey Chaps,
Thought I would get some formal golf lessons before I joined a club.

Approached a local ( Tehidy) Golf Club who wanted me to fill in a form, get references, THEN go along for an interview - just to knock a white ball around.

Interview - I want to play golf, not get a job !!

Tuition = £20 per half hour.

So the search continues for a golf club to accept an over fifty, socialist, golfing novice.

Interview - ye gods!!
:eek:

Why would a socialist like you want to play a 'sport' like golf?

I thought golf was for the beige-waa-zee middle classes. You bloody sell out.

Anyway, golf is a good walk spoilt by 18 holes.

LOL

Go clay shooting instead. No snobbery, less cheating :cheesy:
Might also be cheaper.

BBB might approve of that :cheesy:

Yea - clay shooting is good fun. Almost as good fun as the real thing - shooting hippies.

I dont see how you can be a socialist and a trader. A trader seeks to take from the many to benefit oneself and a socialist seeks to take from the few and distribute to the many.

Therefore the two are mutually incompatible so please explain how this is reconciled ? Unless you are a Gemini of course ?

A former socialist Prime Minister was seen visiting his commodity broker the week before a sterling devaluation.
I wonder if he had a position :rolleyes:

I was just thinking that too Paul.

Speaking of commies, I received some junk through the door today from some outfit called the RESPECT THE UNITY COALITION. They stand for the following:
Respect, Equality, Socialism, Peace, Environment, Community, Trade unionism.

All the things I'm against!!! hahahaha. What a bunch of wallies. No surprise to see George Galloway is behind it all.

Bloody reds.

Hi Neil

LOL :LOL:
Yep, joining golf courses is like going for a job interview, but it is worth it :cool:
£20 an hour is about average these days. I have to say though, Tehidy golf club is superb, (one of the best I've played), so there maybe cheaper deals around.

Happy hitting

Thats what they tell you. Socialists, or any other group, will exploit the masses for their own ends. I am no different - except I do not exploit individuals in daily life.

Confused - well, sorry, thats how I am. My own brand of socialism therefore I have no need to justify myself to others, never will. :D

teed off on a local course yesterday ( good slice) and spent ages looking for a white ball among millions of seagull feathers ( No- I didn't hit a seagull. They walk around shedding feathers with the intention of making life difficult for me - so it seems at times)

Ah -yes. A shotgun. No that offends my Hindu principles :LOL:

Also, I am nervous about teeing off in front of one club house that is close to the first tee. Everyone is watching you, and I am guaranteed to fluff the shot.

No I will not play any of you for money ;)

PS - you may want to watch Caddyshcak for some tips for your plush golf club.
