Letter: Golfer finds golf course fees humorous

I went to play golf at the Ellis Golf Course in Cedar Rapids on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon.

I asked in the pro shop if I could have a 9-hole fee. The lady behind the counter advised the young man by the register to ring up a nine-hole fee. Kachink, kachink.

“That’ll be $19,” he said.

“Really? What is the 18-hole fee?,” I asked.

“$19,” he said.

After reasonable laughter I opted for the 18-hole ticket.

I don’t know if a private golf course would provide humor with their fees. Probably not. Wait a minute. Maybe they would have more accommodating prices.
