Synopsis: Reveals the male-dominated policies of many American golf country clubs, describing how they restrict female membership, charge higher member fees, limit playing times, and otherwise discriminate against women.
From Library Journal:
Through many examples of discriminatory practices and legal cases, Chambers, a journalist specializing in legal issues, summarizes the historical and current situation for women golfers in America. The growing number of women playing golf and climbing the corporate ladder have caught the golf world by surprise, she claims. Some private clubs don't allow single women, toss out women who divorce, restrict prime tee times to men, bar women from their restaurants, or bar women from their grounds altogether. Businesswomen viewing golf as integral to corporate entertaining and networking feel the effects of the "grass ceiling," and some are fighting for change, incurring ostracism, shocking harassment, and even death threats. Somewhat repetitious, this book reads like an extended magazine article. The story of these inequities is important, but it is far from "untold." Public libraries can purchase where there is an interest.
