Pine Knot Promotes Pot-Friendly Golf

At least one local golf course is using 4-20 Day – when cannabis culture is celebrated – as part of its marketing.

Pine Knot Golf and Country Club in Dorchester is opening the door this Saturday, April 20 to golfers who enjoy more than just grass on fairways and greens.

At its Facebook page, Pine Knot announced:

“4-20 Special: With the legalization of marijuana last year we invite everyone out to Pine Knot to enjoy 4-20 this Saturday whether you partake or not. Pine Knot is an INCLUSIVE course that welcomes all and we are running a $42.00+hst for Golf and Cart Special, Hot Dogs are $4.20+hst, Snacks are 2 for $4.20 (after hst) Golf is supposed to be fun and that is always true at Pine Knot!! We only ask that you be respectful of our other patrons who do not take part in smoking! Let’s have Fun and Enjoy the Greens at Pine Knot!!”

Pine Knot general manager Eric Kirkpatrick said, “It’s been part of the culture on the golf courses for a good number of years. So why not? Just go out and embrace it. The cloud is pulled off of it. It’s legal.

“People don’t want to be told what to do,” he said. “We don’t want to have to tell them yes or no or indifferent. So come on out and have a good time. We’re in the entertainment business. Come out and be entertained.”

Added Kirkpatrick, “Be cognizant of the fact that not everybody is a part of that culture.”

In March, the former Lombard Glen Golf and Country Club in Smiths Falls, Ont., under new ownership, announced it will re-open on 4-20 as re-branded Rolling Greens Golf Club. It was the first Canadian course to announce it would be a cannabis-friendly golf club.
