Nudists welcome at Swedish golf course

Of course, we all knew this was an April Fools Day joke right? 🙂

A Swedish golf course has relaxed its dress rules allowing nudists to play on the course.

Swedish Golf Online are reporting that Kalskog GK have made a decision that paves the way for nudist golfers to play a round…of golf. Even in the slightly more liberal Scandanavian countries, this is a bold move by the golf club.

I’ll resist the plethora of obvious golf puns that could easily be inserted into this story and just add what the club general manager had to say, who incidentally is a devoted nudist golfer:

“Golf is perceived by many as a very conservative sport with strict dress codes.  This kind of outdated etiquette is what prevents people from trying golf. When the naturalist club in this area came to us with this proposal,  we enthusiastically hit on it immediately,” said the General Manger of Kalskog 

“There is always going to be those who resist change when it comes. We aren’t forcing everyone to play naked, and you will see the naked players playing at specific times, such as early morning or late afternoon. We certainly want to prevent severe sunburn injuries to areas of people’s bodies not used to such, hmmm, exposure,” said Nödtoftig.
