@dru_satori I live in The Woodlands, which has several golf courses and country clubs in it. The number of people than live here versus the number than can afford to use those courses is huge. Golf is an elitist sport. It's that simple.
@dru_satori I know it's not an Onion article, that was just the title of the post. I could care less about the $$ generated, think of how many people occupy the space of a golf course during each day. It's tiny compared to public parks.
