Celebrities Love to Play Golf

Does Donald Trump need to own a golf course to compensate his handicap? Trump, who currently owns at least 11 golf courses plays, we hear, to a 1 to 4 handicap. From the Caribbean to Scotland, he can play anywhere and anytime. Does it affect his handicap? Not negatively, from the sound of it.

It is well known that Justin Timberlake aspires to play on the PGA tour. Currently at a six handicap, he’ll have to work at it to make it to the weekend past the cut. Timberlake once said that he gets more nervous playing golf in front of 500 people, than being on stage in front of 20,000 people. He’ll also need to step up his game if he wants to beat out the likes of Kenny G (R-2) and Huey Luis (R-12 on Golf Digest’s Music Rankings) for best musician golfer.

Timberlake has purchased and redesigned the Miramichi Golf course in Memphis. With an eco-green slant to the reconstruction of the course, he is applauded by environmentalists for reusing waste water and rainwater, planting native grasses in the rough to reduce mowing and spacing tee times 12 minutes apart to encourage walking. A motorized cart is still allowed, but electric only! Is that really eco-friendly?

Trump says he loves golf and that many of his magnanimous deals would never have been completed if he were simply going to lunch with his colleagues. We all know golf is a good place to make contacts and Trump admits that he became friendly with people on a golf course that he would have not befriended otherwise. Trump states that he can learn a lot about a person, their honesty and competitiveness on a golf course.

Finally, there is no doubt that Alice Cooper’s love of golf is legendary. Cooper has remarked that golf saved him from booze and overall is a much healthier addiction. Well, certainly no argument from us there!

Trump, Timberlake and Cooper, among other celebrities, play for the love of the game. Since they have more money than most of the guys on the PGA Tour, they’re winners as soon as they step on the first tee! Not to mention, owning your own golf course certainly provides extra means to improve your score.

I think it’s fantastic when high profile guys get the golf bug,it has nothing to do with money it is truly a love of the game.Someone needs to tell Justin that golf is a compromise between what your ego wants you to do,what experience tells you to do and what your nerves let you do.
