We seem to all get along the old guard of racism is dying here. Coombs tavern is a local prime rib tavern and we all converse no matter age skin color or how rich or poor you are.

Party Pooper!

I suppose that at your club no etiquette  such as "mind if we play through?" exists. 

It's not necessary. I've been at my club for 15 years and no one has ever asked to play through and I have never asked to play through. A round over 4 hours only happens with a full field tournament.

CNN will be all over this rev. Al and Jessie are probably on there way. One of the women is an attorney in York let the fire works begin. Hanover, PA has all white membership clubs so does York so yes racism is alive from York to West Virginia.

This is crap.

Uh Ohhh... "Sandra Thompson, another of the women who is also the president of the York chapter of the NAACP, "  

"Thompson told the York Daily Record that she was hoping for sensitivity and diversity training - not just a meeting with the golf club."  After reading this particular version... I would agree with Thompson.  http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-pennsylvania-golf-club-calls-police-black-women-20180423-story.html

I'd be interested in hearing the names of private PA clubs that state... No Blacks Allowed.

maybe the Chronister's should stick to a consistent answer....Monday's statement was completely different than Sunday's message...you know the one where at least one of the owners admitted they were wrong on Sunday and then decided to blame the victims on Monday....the fact that one is a lawyer and one works for the NAACP doesn't help the fools that own the course....shifting the focus from the boorish behavior of the Chronister's to focus on how these women are gainfully employed is typical racist behavior....as I said, not much has changed in York County since the '60s.....
