‘Sexy’ golf event with ‘naked bar ladies’ sparks outrage among golfing community

A sporting event dubbed the “sexiest and naughtiest golf day” with “nude” women has caused outrage among the golfing community.

The event, titled The Sink the Pink – Big Boy And Bigger Golf Day, comes from 4Play Productions and will be held on a “secret course in Essex” on 16 August.

According to a description of the day on the company’s website, the event will feature more than 30 “very sexy and nude ladies”.

“We pride ourselves in offering the ‘boys’ a very naughty round of golf and an overall super-sexy day filled with forbidden pleasures, oh, and you also get to play golf,” the company’s website states.

Those working at the event will include “naked bar ladies”, while a foam party and wet t-shirt competition will also be held on the day.

The event has caused umbrage among golfers, with Alison Root, editor of Women & Golf telling The Independent: “It’s a shame that women do this type of work and that organisers think it’s acceptable to hire women to parade and sex up the fairways rather than encouraging them to play on them instead.

“The industry is working very hard to promote equality and inclusivity in the game, as due to golf’s heritage it has long been perceived as a men-only sport.

“Just when barriers are being broken down, this type of event simply undermines what the industry is striving hard to achieve.”

Root adds that such an event “in this day and age is very disappointing”.

On hearing news of the event, semi-pro golfer Aliah Saunders told the Daily Star: “This is just horrendous and takes the sport back centuries.

“It is a million steps back in time.”

Saunders continued, adding that golf is seen as a “male-dominated sport.

“I regularly get looks when I am on the course by men who obviously don’t know this is my job and expect me to be rubbish.”

A representative from 4PlayProductions tells The Independent: “Our UK event will be our sxith instalment and we would like to comment that both females and males are invited and have participated in past events.

“We constantly have husbands and wives joining our days.”

They added that women working at their events are “treated with respect and at no stage is there any soliciting allowed”.

Other events listed on the company’s website include an “All Women’s Golf Day” which features a picture of a shirtless butler at a golf club.
