My latest Score Golf column, arguing that governments should not own golf courses, was posted today. It can be found here.
Here’s a taste:
Government and golf go together just about as well as cut worms and greens. Or oil and water. Either way, you get the picture.
Sure politicians are comfortable playing golf, but considering this liking, they certainly dont have much of a handle on running golf. Even so, it still came as a surprise to many when the P.E.I. Conservative government under Premier Pat Binns announced last week that it was considering getting out of the golf business.
Apparently, according to the opposition Liberals, the foray into golf had cost P.E.I. upwards of $1 million annually in losses.
