Do you suppose that every once in a while someone thinks, "I wish that I never started that thread on TOTV".

In rebuttal most associates working at golf side of business aren’t making a large wage, most shop and ambassadors make minimum wage but get get golf rates reduced , there is not a greens keeper on each course and the courses receive bare minimum care so perhaps your business model is a bit skewed as the amount of income reported on golf is well in excess of money spent , it is a multi million dollar revenue source and a huge profit maker for TV . Having been involved in golf course operations due to a best friend owning one , any owner would love to have this type setup .

I complained I couldn’t play as many golf courses a week until I met a man with no golf courses. Arnold Palmer Proverb 1.1.1.

I believe the Geneva Convention prohibits beating this topic to death over and over. It's now in the same category as the resurrection of dog poop threads

So agree!!! Could the boycott be extended to more than one day a week. Preferably Tues, Thur & Fri. My groups would be so appreciative of your efforts.

It is a very interesting phenomenon that allowed us to reach old age before encountering bumps in the road.

I know the answer is "go look it up" but just in anybody has some actual dollar figures that'd be much appreciated.
