The Denim Nazis?
By Torleif Sorenson on 11/21/14
As president of Weston Golf Club in Massachusetts, Tom Ferry saw it as part of his duties to enforce the club's dress code, which clearly states that denim attire of any kind is not acceptable in the clubhouse, the golf course, or anywhere on club grounds.
This should not be surprising; the very exclusive club has a $45,000 initiation fee — as well as a Donald Ross-designed course. But what happened on a Saturday night in September makes Weston Golf Club look like a bizarre cross between Caddyshack and the Jerry Springer Show. (Assuming that show is even still on the air.)
According to the Boston Globe, Stephen and Charlotte Weeple are not club members, but were meeting friends in the clubhouse bar for drinks. Ferry stepped in to inform them of the club's no-denim rule. Callum Borchers of the Globe takes it from there:
Ferry believed the Weeples were in violation of the dress code and used profane language to tell them jeans are not allowed on the grounds, according to a letter the couple wrote to the club's directors.It later developed that several club members were also in denim that evening.
Apparently, club directors convened
Ferry has since resigned from his post as club president.
At least it didn't turn out like your average "basketbrawl":
