Those crazy anarchist golfers at Golf Refugees have created a Survival Handbook and believe its about time we stood up against the stupidity and stuffiness of golf authorities.
Are there too many rules in golf?
Golf rules are generated by an ever expanding army of blazers who lunch out and devise a few more convoluted rules over a glass of port. Soon it will be called the ‘Encyclopedia Rules of Golf’.
Do any amateurs or pros know the rules of golf?
Let’s cut our defence budget and get back to a few simple rules of golf. Play the ball where it lies, which we can all remember and comprehend.
Why are dress codes for young golfers devised by old men who wear their trousers around their chests?
Let’s have a flexible dress code where golfers of all ages can wear what they like. Why do we insist on dressing teenage golfers to look like their dads? Fashion tastes of young people are only objectionable to old farts, who probably wore something similar when they were young.
Isn’t it about time we started to ask how our golf apparel is made?
Synthetic polyester derived from petroleum is a favoured fabric. It’s single environmental saving grace is that it can be recycled. So why aren’t the big golf brands manufacturing shirts made from recycled polyester?
Here is the Golf Refugees survival manifesto:
More BMX’s less BMW’s in golf club car parks.
More t-shirts and trainers on the fairways.
More carbon neutral golf apparel.
