Tasty waves in the morning, 18 in the afternoon. @shark_gregnorman talks connection between #surfing and #golf. 🏌🏻♂️🏄🏼♂️no wonder the @golfersjournal grew out of @surfersjournal @brendon_thomas @kellyslater @webdotcomtour @sandalsresorts #golftravellive
A few spots left for Coyne Cup IV. Bring your foursome or your family for a Ryder Cup style event in the Highlands featuring @RoyalDornochGC and my top of the pops @Crudenbaygolf @carnoustiegolf too. All skill levels welcome. https://www.oldsodtravel.com/coyne-cup-2019 #CoyneCup #golftravellive
As if three awesome courses wasn’t enough reason to visit @streamsongresort now they come with books. Stop by if you’re down that way this month. #acoursecalledscotland @simonbooks #golf #booksigning #golftravellive
As I played my way around the UK in 2015, I saw a half-dozen golfers playing alongside canine companions, their best friends tethered by long leashes to their trolleys. Scotland’s sacred right to roam (allowing a Scotsman to walk anywhere he pleases on his native soil) meant that sunny days brought packs of labradors out to the edges of the links, where cordial hellos and nods were exchanged between golfers and the dog-walkers in the dunes.
Nothing lights up a foursome like a visit from the greenskeeper’s golden retriever, often a resident mascot and the only dog allowed on property. But why are these hundreds of grassy acres left to one lonely goose chaser? Why can’t golf and terriers get along?
Weighing pros against cons isn’t a fair contest (there’s really only one con, and you bring a plastic bag for that). Pros: More walking golfers. Fewer carts, with their myriad negative impacts on courses and the cost of golf. Health benefits, for you and your loyal partner. Growth of the game: I will be at the PGA show in a few days, where thousands of exhibitors will unveil strategies for bringing new faces to golf, while I think the best one is currently sleeping under my chair. “Honey, I’m taking the dog out for a walk,” sounds far more selfless than, “See you in four hours.” And don’t overlook integrity–who could give himself a six-footer, or scribble down an unearned score in front of his most honest, faithful friend?
I suspect that the reason we don’t allow our dogs on our golf courses is the reason we don’t make a lot of common sense changes in golf, out of a sense of, “We don’t do that because we never have/We do it this way because it’s always been done this way.” But consider the fact that I took this picture at Royal North Devon, the first golf course in England, and an Old Tom Morris design. They’ve been doing golf a lot longer than we have, and they aren’t afraid to let the dogs out.
