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.

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.

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.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
