Not disagreeing you, but I have started to view golf as near enough essential for my mental health these days! Like you, it would take a hell of a dire situation for me to cut my golf - and even then my last resort would probably be dropping my membership but go back to the old pay as you play membership I used to have at a nearby public course. (Course is in awful nick though by all accounts.)similar situation if I had to trim back £100 or so a month id trim other areas first , it would take a lot to trim back on the golf membership.
where as one my PP was saying the increase in membership (not announced yet but we have inflation based increases I believe) is going to make x number of people jack it in because they cant afford it.. they need to think of the members etc
well no.. they A supported us during covid and we werent charged.. thats a good thing.. they didnt have to B their costs have risen massively be it fuel for the machines or for treatments for the grass etc... and C a big bug bear of mine is he forgets golf is a hobby not a essential.. if energy bills go up and phone contracts its annoying and sometimes angry because of the companies profits but we need them... golf? its a choice.. if we cant afford it we simply dont play. surely?
