Get Your Wife to Hate The Game You Love...

     Touting the new property’s unique and imaginative design, representatives announced Monday the opening of The Ordeal Golf & Country Club, a new course specifically designed for full-scale family meltdowns.

     Situated in northern Ontario, right in the heart of Black Fly country, the 350-acre property reportedly incorporates many of the most aggravating elements of golf and expands them into a creative and fully immersive world of irritation, which is said to include 6-hour rounds and a convoluted layout that ensures most shots are either blind or severely uphill.  According to the club GM, Shank Bartlett, Ordeal’s specialized combination of features will ensure a slowly building resentment among female visitors, eventually resulting in a dramatic public outburst followed by a silent walk back to the car.

     “We’ve considered every detail to ensure couples have the heated argument of a lifetime,” said Bartlett, explaining that the club is divided into three distinct nines named Fatigue, Hunger and Boredom. “Whether it’s the sheer distance between holes or the unspecified bathroom locations, every aspect of the experience is guaranteed to ratchet up the tension until your wife loses all emotional self-control and screams that she should never have tried the game in the first place.”

     According to Bartlett, considerable effort was devoted to crafting the course’s overall aesthetic, which emphasizes open, unshaded stretches of dry, brown turf without any benches for resting.  Additionally, no water is provided anywhere on the grounds and there are absolutely no power carts or rickshaws.  Bartlett went on to add that access to the tee is based on a ‘first come, first served’ model giving irritable newbies the opportunity to squabble over who’s up next.

     One of Ordeal’s most talked-about features is that it’s almost always under construction making conversation with your loved one virtually impossible.  Club officials explained that the unnecessary work is intended to sow seeds of resentment, contributing to the eventual fiery altercation they expect to boil over at the Half-Way House which has no seating and sells nothing but over-cooked Bratwurst and $15 cans of warm beer.

     “We provide the poorly thought out environment, and you do the rest — whether you opt to loudly belittle her poor play, criticize her club selection or coach her on every shot, Ordeal G & C C is perfect for guys who want to turn their wives off the game forever,” said Bartlett, raising his voice over the punk, hip-hop and heavy metal music that blares on a continuous loop from loudspeakers throughout the entire property.  

     Club officials noted that Ordeal also features ridiculously expensive lessons, a ‘smoke anywhere’ policy with respect to cigars and a Pro Shop that specializes in over-priced clothing tailored exclusively to men.  “We want your spouse to have a one-of-a-kind experience while you’re here, which is why our all-male staff will be on hand to ignore their needs while wishing them ‘a great day on the links,’” said Bartlett, referring to the greeting that will begin to sound more and more like a taunt as the afternoon wears on.
