Butler National Members Vote To Keep Women Out - Page 2

post #19 of 56

A poster above nailed it when he called it a "sausage fest." But men's club, women's club big deal people. Let them run it how they see fit.

If a men-only club is a "sausage fest", what would you call a women-only club? Just curious.

No offense to the member of the same name but, I'd venture the term clambake? or perhaps taco fry?

Wasn't Augusta National a men's only club until just recently?  They never had a Ryder Cup or any other 'public' event, did they?  And when will Augusta start construction on the swimming pools, tennis courts and expanded powder rooms for the ladies?

Women weren't banned from Augusta, only from becoming full members. LPGA pro's play there quite often, Family outings are a regular occurrence there as well.

I don't see what the big issue is. Here in Evanston (suburb of Chicago) we have a women's club. It's for women only. No one complains about it, especially men because men don't want to be there. Once again, it's for women only. Since when did it become a bad thing to have a club for men (or women)? We're talking about recreation, people, get a grip.

Sigh.

 

I was trying to make the point that those of you using derogatory names for a men-only club might think twice before applying the same treatment to a women-only club. Now I see how misguided I was.

I thought golf was about developing business/political connections to get ahead in life?

Never underestimate the crudeness of some people on the internet.

Part of belonging to a private club is to develop business / political connections, the other part is to escape from every day life and have some "me" time. 

 

Women bring drama to a club, men typically get along well but add women to the mix and suddenly there's drama.  Plus for all you haters of slow play, the women at my club average 5+ hour rounds because they spend more time chatting than golfing.

Most likely through buying them a BMW or private schooling.

Does Butler National allow women to use the course and other club facilities? I know that some clubs only allow men to be members, but dependents can use the club like they are members.

Per this link , the answer is no.

 

I'm now thinking of this old Three Stooges short The W-H Club Suppose a member snuck a woman onto the course, had her smoke cigars and tell raunchy jokes to fit in.
