Glad to see my lifelong disinterest in golf is paying off

let me tell you about golf
i grew up in a little desert valley called Tucson, Arizona, where it only rains 2 inches a year on average. the majority of the city’s water is pumped from an underground aquifer, which took millions of years to fill. one of the biggest conservation efforts in our city was for water, naturally, and i spent a lot of time learning about low flow toilets and 5 minute showers. i learned that filling your sink basin and washing your dishes in that water is less costly than running the tap. i learned that it only takes 2 days without water on the desert for someone to die
the city was sinking as the aquifer drained. neighborhoods fell into flood zones that didnt exist 10 years ago
there’s a road called Golf Links in the city and it is lined with golf courses. miles of green grass where grass doesn’t grow, in a valley where it doesn’t rain. why? because the rich white retirees who moved there to stop the aching in their joints decided they should also get to play golf. meanwhile our public schools taught small children like me that taking long showers would kill the world
let the golf industry burn

There are 15,500+ golf courses in the United States alone. 
Each one consumes ~312,000 gallons of water per day. 
That consumption is equivalent to 55+ million humans per day in the United States… roughly 1/6 the entire population.

Not to mention it would make the sport cheaper and more accessible to people who aren’t rich, retired white men (granted, there’s a lot of other cost issues in golf, like the fact that a decent driver can run for $200 for, again, no damn reason, but this would at least help). And you could still make it safe and accessible for elderly players without completely killing the natural landscape and wasting resources. These over-tended greens are just there because they make play marginally easier and because wealthy clubhouse people like the look of them (and it justifies keeping fees high enough to, y’know, “keep the riffraff out”).Those were the things that really drove me away from the sport, to be honest - the blatant racism/classism among most players, the wastefulness, and the complete aversion to change, or even to acknowledging things could be changed. Like I used to hear players talk all the time about how much they loved “being out in nature” and it made me want to break a club over their heads, because oh my God, do you think this is what nature is?! If you actually want to appreciate somewhere with beautiful landscapes like Arizona while you play, then don’t build a fucking emerald green in the middle of a desert! And if you’re just there to play on pretty, easy, fake turf, then go to a virtual range. I know old golfers hate computers more than anything else, but at least my generations keeps their simulated hobbies INSIDE where they can’t ruin the local environment. Like I think it’s pretty telling that I started this little rant by apologizing for enjoying golf (a sport I do still like in theory, and think a lot of people would enjoy if it was ever pried out of the hands of rich white snobs). I know a lot of people who don’t fit the conventional golfer mold who are in the same boat. They’re good players, and they still want to play, but the course culture is so fucking terrible it drove them out permanently. So yeah, like OP said: burn the golf industry. It’s killing the environment, it’s killing communities, and (if you somehow don’t care about those but do care about golf) it’s killing the sport itself. As it is, golf is gonna go the way of croquet in like 15 years tops. And, as it is, I won’t be sorry to see it go.TLDR, give me desert ball or nothing.

Children, Life, and Love: These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen. ;________________; Isador Ida Straus The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him. When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall. A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.” why wasn’t the movie about them why wasn’t the movie about them
