"Have fun! Golf is a wee bit less expensive."

Err, check that. It cost a mere 10 million to join the Nantucket Golf club, 1 million just to get on the waiting list, and $600 a round.

They refused prez Clinton the right to play there when his was POTUS. Great story though...

Clinton wanted to play golf there when he and Hillary visted Nantucket (famous "dancing" photo on the beach period). Sorry, the golf club said, you have to be a member or be a guest of a member. "Well, give me the membership list and I'll find a member." Said Clinton.

"Can't do that sir, the membership list is secret." Enraged, Clinton arranged to have a fleet of aircraft fly secret service agents to cover the island, knocking on doors and asking if anyone knew a member of the golf club. It was the LARGEST MAN HUNT IN NANTUCKET HISTORY!!!

Unfortunately for Clinton, the secret service failed to find anyone who admitted knowing a member. Good to know these guys were gainfully employed instead of looking for terrorists and Bin Laden. <gg>

Well John G good luck with the golf thing. Maybe if all your Offshore stuff is cheap enough, someone on here maybe might have some Golf stuff to trade you.

Maybe a golfcart for a blower motor? What you got?

Who knows?

Why pick one?

Weekends are for boating. Weekdays are for golfing
