Golfing in the Nude: Barefoot, Bare-butt Mandatory

By Stephanie Hacker
So we all know that there are a few places throughout the globe that offer “free-spirited” fun…nude beaches, for example. But now, nudists are getting a little envious of the new and one-of-a-kind, clothing-is-not-an-option French golf course La Jenny Naturist.
 
This 22-acre, six-hole course includes four par 3 holes, two par 4s and a water hazard.
 
When one arrives at the club, it is mandatory that they strip down before stepping foot on the course. Golfers are not allowed to take photos of anyone except their friends and family. Engaging in any sexual activity on the golf course is prohibited.
 
The American Association of Nude Recreation’s (AANR) president, Susan Weaver, wishes there were more nude golf courses in the United States. The AANR “advocates nudity and nude recreation in appropriate settings while educating and informing society of their value and enjoyment.”
 
"I don't know of any full 18-hole golf courses in the U.S." Weaver told AOL News. "There are two nude courses that I know of--one in Willamette, OR., and one in Kissimmee, Fl.--but they're both chip-and-putt."
 
So, you may ask yourself, why would someone want to golf in the nude? According to the AANR relaxation, stress relief, positive body image, and increasing self-esteem are just a few of the reasons people choose the nudist lifestyle. (Hmmm…that makes it sound VERY enjoyable!)
 
Weaver commented saying “we have people working on it,” in regards to convincing an 18 hole course in the U.S. to host a “clothing is optional” tournament or further, set aside one day a week for nudists. Realistically, this may not be financially possible, says Ted Hadley manager of Cypress Cove Nudist Resort in Kissimmee, Fl. He explains that the course needs a consistent group of golfers to pay for the green fees, which in not likely with such a radical move.
 
Well, what do you think? Would you bare all to tee up?
