SOUNDS LIKE SOMEBODY'S A HACKER... (via Glenn Dryfoos):

Chávez Loyalists Push to Close Golf Courses (SIMON ROMERO, 8/12/09, NY Times)

President Hugo Chávez’s political movement has found a new target: golf.

After a brief tirade against the sport by the president on national television last month, pro-Chávez officials have moved in recent weeks to shut down two of the country’s best-known golf courses, in Maracay, a city of military garrisons near here, and in the coastal city of Caraballeda.

“Let’s leave this clear,” Mr. Chávez said during a live broadcast of his Sunday television program. “Golf is a bourgeois sport,” he said, repeating the word “bourgeois” as if he were swallowing castor oil.
