Science and Golf II: Proceedings of the 1994 World Scientific Congress of Golf

By A. J. Cochran; M. R. Farrally | Go to book overview

We see other areas for future analysis based on this kind of approach: the way in which financial and business disciplines have shaped so much of emergent golf infrastructure, the customised construction of courses, the setting of profit-maximising subscriptions, green fees and equipment prices, the increasing use of examinations as entry-hurdles (from the PGA qualifying schools to the interview and playing test required by “exclusive” clubs). Whither, one may wonder, the “gentlemanly” elite in the next few decades? Yet, to conclude, it is not necessarily a counsel of despair to recognise that both the modern form of golf and our modern modes of understanding it have a joint disciplinary genesis. That is why, in the terms set out in our title, we envisage golf's modern evolution as a process of “discipline” and “flourish”. For it is surely the case that golf fundamentally has flourished through discipline, albeit accompanied by certain de-civilising tendencies. At the same time, its development has been strongest where disciplinary power-knowledge has given rise to a golf that is played and appreciated with a flourish.
