Q: should i sell my golf clubs?

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/video/why-china-saying-game-over-182733923.html

 

I actually would never consider playing golf here, my clubs travel with me to other countries. Poor quality, lousy bathrooms, i just can't imagine what problems i would have to deal with playing golf here and I just don't have the desire to play and go home in disappointment, which is likely the outcome.

 

Anybody have a good experience playing golf here, i prefer not to be a guinea pig and let someone else give me a recommendation.

my golf clubs are gone, fishing rods will be next (they are on the balcony- unused for 5 years)  it' the Chinese Dream that has caused this dismantling of my passion for these 2 pastimes.

 

 

and I live half a km from the sea ... no fish!!! just fish farms. the driving range (no course) is expensive.

Actually, I am a PGA Professional living in China and I think China has some of the best manicured golf courses I have played. While it is pricey, you are treated like a VIP when at Chinese golf courses. Don't sell your clubs just yet.

LastTargarean:

Not sure if this dude is real, but I agree. The one golf course I've visited was deserted and priced beyond the means of 99% of the locals. If they had public courses, that would be a nightmare scenario.

I know they're reasonably common here, but didn't the govt ban golf courses?

 

I seem to remember something about them being a symbol of Western decadence or counter revolutionary capitalist running dogs against China or something.

 

Or maybe the issue was the prime farm land being.. er... 'liberated'... to build the courses which was pissing people off , that would at least make sense.

yes, they will probably require a photo to play golf like a photo in Macau for gamblers, when the next revolution starts against the haves from the have nots, they will already have a list ready.

i would recommend they convert the courses to football fields, when a country of 30 million (England) can kick you ass all day long in soccer or football and you have 20 percent of the population of the planet, you really have a problem.

Lets hang out with a bunch or rich lazy assholes and watch a boring golf match and go home blind in one eye. Sounds life fun, sign me up.
