Racist abuse at a golf club on 08:43 - Aug 2 with 972 viewssolomon

I suspect this is true of many establishments not only golf clubs. I believe the all England tennis and croquet club didn’t admit Jewish members in the past?

Some sports clubs have always been a bit elitist, the membership changes but not always the mindset.

Yes it was commonplace for Jewish people to be rejected for tennis club membership as recently as the early 1930’s. That’s the reason so many Jewish tennis clubs were formed in the 1920’s.

Even after the war there were the odd instances of Jews being refused membership of some tennis clubs, but it was far less common as the racists had moved on to discriminating against blacks in the 1950’s.

Indeed, that’s why I am not at all surprised to hear of this story regarding KD. Generally most people have been brought up with a sense of common decency and a moral compass, however there are still pockets of bigotry firmly entrenched within our society.I think we now have a younger generation coming through who are far better equipped and enabled to tackle these issues, that can only be a good thing.

I haven’t lived in England for over twenty years, and never attempted to play golf when I did, so I can’t comment on whether Golf clubs down south are institutionaly racist. One would have hoped that would have died out when the older Fawlty Towers type Majors passed on.

We know that sexism certainly exists in such places so I wouldn’t be surprised.

To back up DK’s earlier point, golf clubs are very common up here and cater for all ages, races and classes.

I was astonished when I learned this....that golf is a perfectly normal working class sort North of the Border

I have a very stereotypical view of a golfer.... a view that seems to chime with the picture coming out of Hintlesham

I tried to play up here but was rubbish. I was a quite taken back when a neighbour took me golfing for the day and at the second hole got out a can of Tennents lager. And then did so at every second hole.

Of course St Andrews and Gleneagles have a certain prestige, but it’s a commonly played working class sport up here.

Apologies, I don’t want to appear to infer that all golf clubs are institutionally racist, I don’t play golf and have never been in one I guess the point I’m making is that this sort of behaviour is becoming more common place nowadays in lots of places, it’s a very sad state of affairs and One which we all have a duty to address and correct.

From what I can tell, by immediate impressions anyway, it's to aid the focus on the new found relations between our footers and dear friend piners.

Now I figured footers is probably single, but pinewood might have some explaining to do when watching his bags being packed tomorrow.
