That's pretty much the best post of the thread.

Kind of hard to hold a Club when you do not have an opposable thumb

I played as a single on an executive course, and was hooked up with a couple who had a small dog in the cart. They said the dog would never leave the cart, and he never did. It wasn't a problem at all. However, that's probably one in a thousand dogs that will behave like that.
Nope, dogs are wonderful animals. I love dogs. They do not belong on the golf course.
Nope, it is not mistreatment to leave a dog at home if you know what you are doing. Give the pup lots of exercise and he/she will enjoy the rest.
It is not a mistreatment of a dog to crate the dog, either. They like a small cozy place to call home.
I'd recommend the OP to watch a season or two of "The Dog Whisperer" with Cesar Milan, or read a couple of his books.
You will learn how to make your dog a happy, healthy, well adjusted dog.

The starter and ambassador dropped the ball on that.

There is no rule posted or on the internet that I've seen, forbidding golf in the dog parks.

I thought that's why you have a dog - to dig those holes so you can play golf. No?

I do know that it would be a mistreatment of the poor animal to leave him home alone while I go off to play. My wife is not here with me, so I have no one to leave the animal with.
mistreatment of the poor animal to leave him home alone while I go off to play. Really? C'mon, man!
