“My Life as a Golf Marshall” : What do Sausages and Golf Have to do with Each Other?

Well strictly speaking not much intellectually speaking. However in my course there is a snack hut at the 10th hole that serves an appallingly small selection of food. At one point in time there was a person at that hut that grilled the tastiest sausages with pride and became somewhat of a golf course legend. Well this year the hut was open and serving sausages using a pathetically small barbeque to grill the sausages. It was almost as if they had no interest in repairing or replacing the more powerful vandalized barbeque so sausages could be grilled more quickly.

As a golfer I admit I never had one of those sausages preferring to bring healthier food from home for a snack. Well this wimpy replacement barbeque barely had the power to cook the sausages and the time it took caused jam ups to develop as people waited for their sausage to cook. Damn sausages became a Marshall’s nightmare so yes there is a connection with sausages and golf. The third-party caterer refused to accept orders on the ninth hole so the sausages would be ready when the golfers arrived on the 10th hole progressive and astute company that they were. Demand for sausages died up due to the delay they caused and the catering company closed the hut claiming it was not profitable. Strange as it had been profitable for decades.
