Surely right now they were the venue where a racist incident happened. I'm niy quite sure why they are being blamed.

They need to have time to look into it and ban the member in question (if he can be identified). If they know who it is and don't take serious action then yes i think people should think hard on playing there!

Poll: Genuine answers please on what you would choose next season!

Of course they should have the chance to investigate and take appropriate actions. But their refusing to comment does not bode well or indeed give the impression they are taking it seriously and/or give a sh1t.

Poll: So who are the biggest menace / danger?

Simply put, the GC should have reacted by refusing to accept Dyers resignation and banning the member concerned.

What they did however, was to accept the resignation and seemingly, nothing else. They should be supporting Dyer and calling out racism in their club or they are complicit in that racism.

The way they've acted so far is the literal equivalent of saying to Dyer, "Its probably for the best".

Poll: If it meant ITFC owning their own ground.

What surprised me was that it seems that Dyer's playing partner didn't say anything to the abuser at the time?

I may have read it wrong, but it seemed a good opportunity for the guy to be challenged on the spot.

Poll: Would love to see one of our midfield contribute 10+ goals. Who is most likely.

Not every business are PR experts or geared up for this type of thing though - pretty easy to envisage that they are like rabbits in the headlights on this and have the best intentions but trying not to put their foot in it

Reading between the lines it does sound like there’s more to this than stated though. Immediately cancelling membership does seem an overreaction unless either someone who is part of the club was involved or it had been raised an no action taken. That said I’m not black - so I could be completely wrong as to what a rational action is under the circs

I’m sure someone will know more - and hopefully if the club are implicit it’ll come out in due course and people will do the right thing

The club needs to investigate the incident and if there is clear evidence of racial abuse, hold a disciplinary hearing, which you would expect to result in the abuser being expelled from the club. Unfortunately, these incidents need to follow due process so as to avoid potential legal complications so they take time.

They know who it is and have not up to now, as far as I'm aware, taken action that Kieron would see as appropriate for the situation.

You would expect them to have a disciplinary procedure, which they are bound to follow if another member issues a written complaint.

They won't have a corporate PR department for sure.

But a simple "We are investigating and won't comment further until the facts are fully established. Of course we are an inclusive club and value all our members to play golf blah blah blah" takes about 30 seconds to write.

Silence is violence
The act of omission being every bit as heinous as the use of the racist words.I

I'd join the boycott, but as I've never, to the best of my knowledge, been there in the first place it'd not have any meaningful effect.

Meant more in the sense of expertise than time - if you don’t know what to say and don’t want to put your foot in it then not commenting can seem the safest option

But as thought Phil’s post does suggest there is a bit more to it, so probably is them trying to sweep it under the carpet

So as the OP says then

One suspects golf club discipline is more likely to be about fining members for wearing the wrong socks.

Not booking weddings etc would hit them where it hurts.

If they're not taking that into account in their decision-making about this, they're really, really stupid.

The best outcome for the club would be for the member involved to resign.

Not disputing this happened, but is there any concrete "evidence" that this happened? Otherwise, it could easily just be open to hearsay.

I've not seen anywhere that no one spoke up at the time.

I don't understand why any suppositions on the reaction would be made by any of us who weren't present.

Glad to see the article put up by Phil at the top of the page that the club are finally acting.

I suspect they'e getting blamed because they're giving every appearance of not only letting the perpertrator get away with it but that they don't give a t0ss that it's going on at their club. As others have said 'a simple, we are investigating, etc' statement would have sufficed.

It doesn't do much for the view that golf clubs are havens offering a 'safe space for the gammonista.
