Tuesday is Ladies Day...

In the world of Golf... Tuesday at many golf clubs is LADIES DAY... the golf course is closed to men until noon...
July/August Golf for Women magazine rethinks the fashion of golf... Fashion Design Stars are looking at women golfers ... researching and solving where golfwear went wrong. Golf fashions are looking to the past for inspiration. Above, VOGUE of the 1920s golfwear and 2008 designer recreation.



Another look to the past... The Greenbrier... Resort & Golf Course in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia and the legendary decorator Dorothy Drapery... the resort retains the beauty created by Draper...

NO, Yes (I am now) and NO.
But I think perhaps I should take up golfing - especially if they rethink the outfits...
Love your interpretation btw

I love golf and play lots...also read recently of the Draper decor in the Greenbrier, but have never visited there. Apparently, the historical tours also include a visit to the underground bunker built in the sixties to house the President in the event of a nuclear attack. Interesting place.
