It worked out to about forty one cents a round if you played every day of the year. You could play barefoot and bareback, walk or ride, spit, curse, gamble and swear at the other guy’s mother. You just couldnt bring beer on the course, and it was probably the only golf course on the entire planet Earth that wouldnt allow a single beer to be imbibed by the players. There was probably some rule in the Royal and Ancient Scottish rules of golf that strictly banned the banning of drinking beer while playing golf. The old and wise guys probably put it in there so their wives couldnt mess with their most ancient and sullen right to drink beer and play golf. Most courses actually encouraged drinking and even had little restaurants on wheels with cute barmaids delivering sandwiches and beverages to thirsty and hungry golfers, but not this course, it was all golf and nothing else. Get caught with a smuggled beer in your bag, and get banned for the month. But all in all it was probably a pretty good idea. If you considered all of the players spitting and cursing and gambling while bareback and barefoot, giving those animals the green light to drink as much beer as they wanted while playing golf would be inviting trouble.
