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.

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.

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.

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.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
