Get some wheels
Mark Twain called golf “a good walk spoiled.” But he lived in a benighted age, when walking the course was the only option. Our more enlightened era has given rise to super-cool alternative modes of transport, and we don’t mean the golf cart. We mean the GolfBoard, a wheeled snowboard, of sorts, that works on grass. It’s easy to operate, and, more important, it’s a lot of fun. On the slim chance you wipe out, just think of it as a good ride spoiled.
Drop the macho shtick
Ever hear the one about the guy who’s playing golf with his three buddies when... yeah, you probably have. But that sexist joke is tired, and so is the good-old boy backslapping, relics from an era when golf was said to stand for “Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden.” Get with it, fellas. If you like things single-sex, join a boy’s choir. Today’s crowd plays in mixed company.
