The South-side Judge: on the one hand, a true man of the people; on the other, he runs in some very fast company. Might I suggest a title for his first book:
A View from the Grill - Reflections on Post-Round Revelry at the Bev.

Very cool, It sounds like the President has also greatly improved his game.


It would have been nice if someone (other than Trump) had done this for President Clinton in Westchester.

He plays the ball down. Hoping to get the chance to play BCC as well as invite him to join me and Mike Young on a Donald Ross Tour.  ;)

a great club for golf with unique ancient natural terrain, and the course is better than it has been for years after some significant chainsaw activity

well done!
It's all about the golf!

He had that really cool swing machine like they have a Pebble that hooks you up actually at the White House.

Why didn't you?? 8) ;)


I know that one of the club's Clinton wanted to join would've taken him if he hadn't blatantly ignored the rules of the game during several previous rounds with that club's leadership. Of course, in the interest of full bi-partisanship, that flaw seems to infect Republican President (s) as well. It is refreshing to know at least one of the recent President's plays it down and with no eraser.

I did not mean that "someone" to be me.... ;D


Funny, Trump seems to have been a long-time cheater in the game, and all this talk about President Clinton I always assumed (his mulligans) was a joke.  With guys that were "vetting" him?  Funny. 


In addition to the inconvenience of President Clinton and his protection I would be more worried about his golfing crew with cigars, and drinks and carts and Trump style golf hats as well as the darn wristbands those knuckleheads would wear when playing.  ???


How much liability does the club take on if the ex-president (or any member) harasses a 20 year old female lifeguard at the pool?   ;D [size=78%] [/size]
