i never understood why someone would want to play golf, what's the attraction?

I could go on and on... I frickin love golf, nearly as much as I love music.
Yer, not to mention the feeling from club to brain you get when you nail one out of the screws.


The Expense
The fresh air (when it's cold or when it's hot and humid)
The artificial turf, and contrived landscape, with more chemical nutrients psi than any place on earth.
The obligation to talk to a bunch of assholes.
The chance to meet a bunch of douche bags that think whacking a ball around a chemical landscape is the finest thing a human being can do.

I must take up this so-called sport!
Before you do you might want to take up a healthier outlook on life, a less cynical side to your nature and start liking yourself a bit more, dipshit.


I love myself, often.

Look at my avatar, dingleberry, and suggest a name more fitting than "dipshit."

I'm pretty confident in my opinion that golf is an environmentally unfriendly game. More chemicals get poured onto a golf course than any other form of landscape. It's positively toxic. Assuming that you care, If you actually thought about golf's environmental impact, you'd have a bad conscience paying your membership fees.

I'm fine with people getting their rocks off in whatever way they prefer, to the extent that it doesn't adversely impact other people. Golf courses are environmentally shitty for the rest of us. So I think golf sucks.

Mate, you're talking absolute nonsense. Links golf courses (which are most courses in Britain) take very little management and least of all very little chemicals to treat and BTW chemicals are only used on the greens (the little, short circles of turf where you drop the ball into the hole) once or twice a year, never on fairways (the huge openings). high and mighty opinions without real knowledge can be very embarrassing.

You're right about one thing, I don't know shit about English golf courses. In California and Florida they're mostly greens. I live in the midst of many golf courses, where the price of the land is so high they don't have a lot of space that isn't called "greens." The chemical runoff often goes into larger bodies of water. If you're comfortable with where you play, enjoy your little bourgeois game.

Should also note a few things:

If you're confident in your golf course, go ahead, lick your balls, don't worry about oral cancers.

Maybe the use of fresh water to grow an unnatural green turf is not an issue where you live? It certainly is an issue where greens appear in the United States.

The Zappas appear to be environmentalists. If they're okay golf courses, maybe I'll reconsider my position.

I distinctly remember an interview with Dweezil where he says "He wasn't big on sports-- he played Badminton once in a while though."

I have to admit, imagining him playing Badminton is very humourous.
Yes I can imagine him in those little shorts and t-shirt, hitting that tiny little shuttlecock around like some sort of shuttlecock! The mind boggles!

Haha, the only footage I've seen of Frank doing something the everyday guy would do is where Frank and Gail drive to a Taco Bell (something similar at least) and talk to some guy waiting in line.


Any recollection where this footage can be found?

Any idea of the era?

One of the golf courses I have used in South Australia uses reclaimed water from a sewage plant.

That course has warnings about not drinking the water from the taps so I definitely won't be licking my balls.

I'm sure if someone could lick their balls they could make a living on it for sure!
I think the only reason dogs do it is because they don't have any wash cloths though.

My guess....? Frank did not play golf. Frank did the night-time, studio tan thing. Dunno.

BTW, just what DID happen to all the fun in the world?

No they're not! What do you mean "mostly greens"? I live in California now and grew up in Florida as well. "Mostly greens"??? WTF? My son LOVES to play and I've accompanied him alot when he was younger on MANY courses and they are not "mostly greens".

Why are you so angry at a sport or even the culture of a sport? Who cares? I am against pesticides too but do you think that pesticide run off is worse for the environment than if the whole course were paved over with a multiplexual campus where people littered and drove through all day with their fumed out SUVs, etc... not to mention all of the waste and toxic crap from the businesses and busses. Fuck! I don't even play golf! LOL!
:P

I saw Alice Cooper Alice Cooper tell Craig Ferguson that Dweezil was a very good golfer. What a shame that Ferguson he didn't ask Alice Cooper Alice Cooper about golging with Frank.

I've been watching the US Open since Thursday. Awesome looking course - kind of medieval. Very difficult.

You can play Chambers Bay on World Golf Tour https://www.wgt.com/ It's impossibly difficult.

And if you do play you could join our Country Club...The Frank Zappa Memorial CC & BBQ.
