Ethical Dilemma: What if you don't like a club's policies, but you really like its golf course?

And as my experience above illustrates, how easy it is to acquiesce! If you do play a round of golf at a club whose policies you disapprove, not many people ever have to know. That in turn feeds a handy rationalization: not many people will ever know that you declined an invitation, either, so why not go ahead and play? The decisions golf organizations make are high profile. If the USGA, for instance, were to yank next year’s Women’s Open from Trump Bedminster, that would be a major statement. (The USGA has given no indication it plans to do so.) By contrast, if I had declined an invitation to play Augusta National in the early 2000s, during the Martha Burk-led protests over the club’s lack of women members, how much difference would that have made? Not much, or at least so I could have rationalized. Augusta is a hard invitation to turn down.
