This is a good start for Pine Valley.  But how 'bout some ordinary women members, not just pro and amateur standouts?!  I'm sure there are women out there who can break 90 and also be "socially compatible", though I'm not quite sure what that means.

So now, it begs the question:  What kind of scores do their male members shoot? 

Good scores. They're pretty good players, most of 'em. Just like at Oakmont. Not many chops.

Meh. Being a single-sex club is on the wrong side of history? That seems harsh. It's a leisure pursuit, a social club, not the right to vote. 

I am very happy for the membership that they are welcoming such great players into their club.

I was a little on the fence between "Meh" and "Better Late than Never" but settled on "Better Late than Never" because inclusion is good for the game in general.  Sure, there are other places to golf but if you are a member and can't bring your daughter to the course to golf then that may inhibit her getting into the game.  Do not know much about Pine Valley and if children of members are even welcome to play with the "Skill Requirement" possibly limiting many younger golfers just starting out.  Still, I think inclusion is good for the game.

It's a private club, not a public accommodation. What they do is their business.

That is true.  They are allowed to look as silly and dated, and as sexist as they want to.

And they would (and were) suffering the ramifications of it.

For example:

Pine Valley has been the focus of a years-long civil rights investigation apparently focused on who calls the place home.

The title of that article is… "Elite N.J. golf club that finally opened to women was focus of discrimination investigation"

I think its great.   Imagine being a female golf fanatic, who has the money and connections to get in….and not being able to simply because she was a woman and I think that’s 100% wrong.

    • DAY 6: practiced tempo with Orange Whip Trainer (10 min).
    • I’ll join this foursome - my timing is flexible and this will allow me to drive back east after the lesson on Saturday. Will join you for dinner on Friday as well. My wife / sometime caddy might also join. Thanks for arranging @StuM!
    • Why did the employer require a test that’s not even recommended by the CDC? Not really ball busting but this is part of a problem we’re facing way too often as physicians. Employers, schools, all making up their own protocols without knowing what they’re talking about. I get your ‘wanting to know’ but know what? Like you said, it’s just a number that means nothing at this time. It’s also possible that insurance wouldn’t cover it as it’s not medically necessary.
    • Lab Corp has a "Semi-Quantitative" test that I'm considering taking.  I'm a leukemia survivor, had a bone marrow transplant, I have GVHD, and I'm on immune suppression medication (tacrolimus, sirolimus, prednisone).  Some of my Dr.'s patients in the same situation as me got no response from the vaccine I took the qualitative test and I have antibodies, but I have no idea how protected I am.  I recently got the Moderna booster. The Lab Corp Semi-Quantitative test gives no indication of what is a good response.  It's just a number.  I don't see the point of taking the test if there is no way to interpret the number.  Still I want to take it, I can at least compare it to the number my neighbor got (his employer required the test).
    • I’m surprised you held onto them for 20 years. They would have ended up lost of in the trash long ago if mine.
