I took up golf two months ago. It was exactly what i needed after being forced into retirement from cricket due to injuries.
I just paid a years membership up front about a week before the closures in Victoria.
My logic is that I am not going to ask for a refund unless I become financially desperate.
I must confess it does frustrate me that bottle shops which are small, enclosed and sell unhealthy products are considered essential. Golf courses aren't essential I admit but they are certainly healthy and very safe compared to small enclosed spaces.
I can't see golf courses in Victoria staying closed for six months. Eventually it will dawn on the Government that although not essential they are safe.
Does anyone else have a view on this?
The governments main concern at this point in time is civil obedience. I'm not being flippant. There would be many people who wouldn't handle not having alcohol. Sad but true. There are many closet alcoholics who use it as a supressant.
