No they won't. They will lose out on a lot of revenue if they do... and people will just bring their own anyway.

Yes they will, will do it one their own or be forced to by government, public health agencies, inspectors, and by the golfers themselves, they don't want to see or touch those empty booze bottles, there are kids on the course you know.

Allie and I played 9 this evening on a local upscale par 3 (attached to an upscale daily fee).  She hit a nice one on this hole, well inside of me, and made the putt for birdie.  She was ornery all da

I agree with you, that I enjoy walking more than riding.  But it's a combination of things here, see my post above about our course.  Then couple that with I'm 60 and have had both knees replaced and

Golf course should allow people to bring their own booze. For the last few years here in Winnipeg you can even bring your own booze to a restaurant so you don't have to pay those crazy high markups eg. pay as much as a full bottle at the licqour store for s simple glass of booze. It has gone ever well, no abuses, no complaints and not a lot of takers either I think.

That is not politics it is good public health practice.

Politics is political parties (Dems and Reps for you in the US) or political leaders for the November 2020 elections Seriously how is what he said political? Honesty I don't get your objection.

You can agree or disagree with his views no issue there but why call it political, just because you don't agree with it?

You can agree to disagree it is a free country with freedom of speech,  thought and assembly, correct?

I'll just take the high road and let this go. Peace out brother.

This isn't Canada...lol. I'm sure we would all like to be able to bring our own, but it isn't allowed here.

I don't mean offense or start a fight. It is a serious question. maybe Americans call many things political vs. the rest of the world eg. Canada.

Politics means political parties, political campaigns, political leaders, political debates on stages not on issues.

I would like to know what you and this sites definition of politics are so I know the rules of the site. Very serious question please don't take offense.

Stay safe S&B 👍😷🧴 🇨🇦🇺🇸

We were not even close to being the first to do this, it has happened elsewhere around the world. Can't take credit for that. There was no fuss either when it was suggested, no people protested, no debate, even restaurants were ok with it. I think this is common in Europe maybe South America as well. Americans should go on the bandwagon with this (or maybe off the wagon is a better way to say it). It is in violation of your right to  bear booze.

Who made you king?

I have serious questions that need clarification especially to us new members. Why can't it be answered?

Covid 19 is not political. It is a global health issue / crisis.

It also is directly golf related because it changes how we are allowed to play the game or even if we can play the game, maybe forever but certinally for the next 2-3 years.

Discussions on how countries or states should or should not be responding generally get into politics.  I didn't say you couldn't talk about Covid19.     It really isn't that hard to figure out when you may be crossing a line.

Covid 19 is also an article on the blog i.e. how it is affecting the golf industry. Lets gt serious here and not be forcing people to not express their views and ask honest positive questions.

The site has no explanation of what political means here. Common sense would be we should not:

1. negatively argue about political parties

2. negatively argue about political leaders

3 negatively argue about political elections

4. negatively argue about political debates on tv

5. negatively portray political followers of various political parties

I have never seen any of the above here. Lets not confuse people have different views, beliefs, philosophies, morals and ideas and this should be encouraged not discouraged as long as it is not against the law and does not endanger people or cite mob violence or racism.
