From Tom Ramsey’s book, ‘It’s a Funny Game’. Sailor, long marooned on a desert island, watched a great looking blond float ashore on a barrel. “how about a cigarette?” she asked, reaching inside the barrel. “Wow!” “And how about a beer?” Wow, wow!” “Now – would you like to play around?” “Lady, don’t tell me you also got golf clubs in that barrel?”

This week’s quote from the “King” Arnold Palmer. The Essence of Golf – Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated. It satisfies the soul and frustrates the Intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening. It is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.

Early one Saturday at the Moore Park municipal course in Sydney, a little man kept inching his way towards the head of the line of golfers waiting to hit off. Each time, he was tossed back unceremoniously to where he had started.

“Once more,” he finally warned the line, “and I won’t open the course!”

21st Stableford Final of the Morris Memorial Trophy

The ninth hole at Portal Golf Club measurers 125 metres. Most people take around sixty-five minutes to play it. The Reason?

The tee is in North Portal, Saskatchewan, Canada; the green is in North Portal, Dakota, United States of America. North Dakota observes Daylight Saving Time while the Canadian neighbour does not, and its therefore an hour ahead. This surely makes Portal’s ninth the longest short hole in the world as well as representing the ultimate in slow play.

The club grouch could always find something to whinge about. The annual subscription, the food, the course, the other members. The first time he hit a hole in one, he complained, “Dammit. Just when I needed putting practice.” (not sure who.)
