Putting Greens Protected From Milady’s High Heels (Jul, 1930)

Putting Greens Protected From Milady’s High Heels

A GOLF course, unadorned by a sprinkling of the fair sex, would be a dreary place indeed; the ladies to whom appearance means everything, would not be quite so chic without those dainty shoes equipped with dagger-like high heels; but a putting green free from those cute little heel prints just the right size to hold a golf ball snugly would be a golfer’s paradise.

So that the putter’s temper might not be utterly ruined, while still permitting the ladies to appear smartly shod in the club house after a round of the ancient and honorable game, J. H. Binks, miniature golfing impresario of Chicago and Florida has perfected an abbreviated ski affair which laces over Milady’s foot and protects the greens from even the sharpest heels.

    Or you could not wear heels to the golf course. Or change shoes. Or stay on the path. Anything is better than this.

    You’d think the world had more important things to think about in 1930.

    Like – modified gas pedals for high heel wearers.

    Or a snowshoe- high heel combo. Think of the possibilities.

    I cannot imagine anyone trying to hit a golf ball accurately on their tiptoes or wearing high heels.

    But anyway, golf shoes are spiked anyway and they aerate the greens.

    From the “Totally Unnecessary & Retarded Devices” line of sportswear.

    At one time it seemed obvious. Golf was not for the ladies.

    Technology to the rescue of equality. ;)
