I came across this bit of swankiness and for some reason it has amused me greatly. From 1979, it’s the Walt Disney World Golf Studio! Ditch the wife and kids and hit the links – a panel of professionals is waiting to show you how to improve your own natural style and swing to play better your way!
For no obvious reason, this screams early Walt Disney World to me. Look at that awesome camera! And the giant screen! And orange fringe! I feel like I’m in my Vacation Villa in my jammies watching on Channel 5. I’m glad the pants were slightly less terrifying by my time, though. Then again, in the 80s everyone had tiny upsetting shorts. C’est la vie.
The point is, this is a window into a time when Walt Disney World was truly the Vacation Kingdom of the World. Golf Studio or horseback ride? Bob-A-Round Boat or Eastern Winds? It’s up to you!
How about some more information on Phil Ritson, who developed the idea of the Golf Studio? Look no further…
