When is the SuperTopo Golf Tourney?

Who's in? Palm Springs is right down the road. Hit the links in the AM and then the V0----- boulders in the afternoon and then shitalk all night.

I think Fogerty is some sort of golf dude and can get us great rates...

What a silly-ass "sport"..who decides what piece of land gets raped for such a banal pursuit?

you can draw comparisons between anything if you stretch it far enough.

Iíve got just the place for low-cost housing. I have solved this problem. I know where we can build housing for the homeless: golf courses! Itís perfect! Just what we need. Plenty of good land, in nice neighborhoods, land that is currently being wasted on a meaningless, mindless activity engaged in primarily by white, well-to-do male businessmen who use the game to get together to make deals to carve this country up a little finer amongst themselves. I am getting tired, really getting tired, of these golfing c*#ks@ckers in their green pants, and their yellow pants, and their orange pants, and their precious little hats and their cute little golf carts! It is time to reclaim the golf courses from the wealthy and turn them over to the homeless! Golfing is a arrogant, elitist game which takes up entirely too much room in this country. Too much roomí in this country! It is an arrogant game on its very design alone, just the design of the game speaks of arrogance. Think of how big a golf course is Ė the ball is that f*#king big! What do these pin-headed pricks need with all that land?! There are over seventeen thousand golf courses in America, they average over one hundred and fifty acres a piece Ė thatís three million plus acres, four thousand, eight hundred and twenty square miles Ė you could build two Rhode Islands and a Delaware for the homeless on the land currently being wasted on this meaningless, mindless, arrogant, elitist, racist, thereís another thing; the only blacks youíll find at country clubs are carrying trays. And a boring game. A boring game for boring people. You ever watch golf on television? Itís like watching flies f*#k! And a mindless game, mindless. Think of the intellect it must take, to draw pleasure from this activity: hitting a ball with a crooked stick and then, walking after it! And then, hitting it again! I say pick it up as#@&%e, youíre lucky you found the f*#king thing! Put it in your pocket and go home, youíre a winner! Youíve found it! No chance of that happening. Dork-o in the plaid knickers is going to hit it again and walk some more. Let these rich c*#ks@ckers play miniature golf! Let them f*#k with a windmill for an hour and a half or so! See if thereís any real skill among these people. Now I know there are some people who play golf who donít consider themselves rich. F*#K ĎEM! And shame on them for engaging in an arrogant, elitist passtime.

-3 strokes for that marvelous screed, Doctor--I can't help it if that's the way this game works...

I'll never set foot on a putting green again!

Nor lie about my handicaps (I have two--the legit fugure and one for betting).

Smokey Bear is a golf nut, surprisingly--and you want to talk about silly hats?

A lovely and logical combination. I prefer to golf first, grab some lunch, then run up the slabs. We were concerned about the golf course and houses at first, but it actually improved the parking options, shortened the approach, and provided a handy bathroom. As long as they let me through the front door in my climbing attire and on the course dressed in that same attire, it's all good.

As for golf being an elitest sport - not so fast. My teamster Dad was an avid golfer, frequenting the inexpensive courses. He retired to a dirt cheap condo in Myrtle Beach. Plenty of them for sale at $20,000.

The only thing worse than my climbing is my golf game. Must need newer equipment, help from a Golf Pro and Rope Gun!!

I NEVER understood golf. Seems like something only climbers who have retired would do. B-o-r-i-n-g..... Gotta be the dumbest game ever.

Do something exciting in retirement instead of wasting your life playing golf. Do something exciting like SCA heavy fighting. Nothing like bashing your friends with big clubs and then drinking beer with them afterwards. Bruises and broken bones heal, but memories only fade with dementia....

the difference between a golfer and a climber: a golfer goes whack..."damn." a climber goes "damn"....whack.
