    What’s your particular reasoning?

    Just a thought given the current state of affairs.

    Without question.

    Now that we live at the whim of Chairman Dan in the PRV.

    How many adult golfers are registered in Victoria?
    That’s how many votes Dan won’t get at the next state election.
    You can add people who fish to that list too

    I’m prepared to be as childish and petulant as is required. And I know it’s only been a few weeks.

    But I agree with Carson 100%.

    Unfortunately, I reckon Sam Newman’s twitter protests will have only strengthened the Chairman’s resolve to extend us the middle finger for as long as he sees fit.

    Mostly because golfers in other states can play as long as they comply with sensible precautions but here in the Nanny State we can’t be trusted to do the same.

    And the best part…by the time we get the go ahead, the weather, which is currently brilliant, will likely turn to crap.

    At the moment…I’d happily go with crap.

    If it weren’t for the large crowds in retail stores, supermarkets, walking by the beach, no one would have a problem with Dan’s stance.
    In the light of the aforementioned scenarios, it just doesn’t make enough sense
    Don’t even get me started on bottle shops and horse racing…..
    Dan says ” no one needs to play golf”
    Evidently they do need to drink, gamble and indulge in high tax revenue raising activities

    I went to a Bunnings yesterday…one look at the queue waiting to get in was enough for me…straight out.

    Herein lies at least one small percentage of the hypocrisy of the current rules. I can honestly say the most threatened I feel in regard to COVID is when I go to buy stuff. Any stuff. But of course…this is “essential” activity.

    People running the tan…or any remotely “highly physical” activity offers a far greater risk than golf with all of the precautions in place.

    But the shithead running our state will in no way back down now…especially with all of the challenges to his authority that he is getting from all over the place in relation to this and other similarly “safe” activities.

    My gambling turnover is way down due to the NBA, AFL & NRL recess. At least there is the odd neddy race to bet on.

    He allegedly plays at Kingston Heath, Dan Andrews, so he actually might be quite keen to have a game sometime soon.

    For our sakes, lets hope so.

    He has an honary membership at KH. He is a paid up member somewhere else.

    Apparently he is a golf tragic, might be going harder on golfers to avoid appearance of bias.

    No one said that he has to play.

    I haven’t been able to play since September and if I am lucky I might be able to resume in October so it doesn’t affect me but I still reckon its pathetic that Vic golfers get punished for the sake of his image.

    I double checked his memberships. He is paid up at KH, used to be paid up at Keysborough, now honary there and also at Wangaratta
