Wives complain of golf

This item appeared in the January 14, 1904 edition of The Chatham Record.

“Judging from the number of complaints and confessions made by wives which appear every week in an England sporting paper, golfers must be ranked among the most neglectful of husbands. Golf, we are told, has paralyzed the enterprise and energy of many breadwinners. Every moment which at one time was given by the golfer to the companionship of his wife and family is spent of the links. His conversation is confined to mere clubroom gossip. He has no interest in any literature save that in the golfing papers and magazines, the neglected wives complain bitterly that they have sunk to the level of mere housekeepers since their husbands have become golf maniacs.”
