    I guarantee they can find some women with money whom can beat these men… especially the last men avoiding matches with ladies.

    I see old guys at the muni scared to lose to girls all the time. I’m sure it’s an even worse phenomenon at the most exclusive places.

    I’m telling you a big reason why even racial equality moves faster than gender equality is become these old kurmudgens are scared to lose to girls.

    …Old as time itself.

      Uh, Baxter, you forgot their clause “Socially compatible”…..

        “Socially compatible” has to be One of the most elitist, exclusionary (not exclusive) things I ever heard. Unbelievable for 2021 really.

        That being said it has become my next Augusta National; an elusive place which peaks interest because it’s clear there is a very special course there.

        Hard to admit but I would probably never be socially compatible because it’s all about the courses for me. I don’t even like going into clubhouses; especially if there are people saying things like “socially compatible”.

          It’s their club, their rules, that’s why they are called “private clubs”….I’ve been reading about many other types of clubs, maybe not club clubs that are exclusionary in their practices. Since Pine Valley does not host any professional events, well, it should be allowed to make its own rules.

            As arguably the toughest course in the world It should be hosting professional events.

            I agree they have their rights but imo every golf club should have something for everyone; because they know it’s the right thing to do.

            I think they’re “go-to” will probably be Condoleezza Rice…
