Tennessee AG: It's legal to enjoy a beer on the golf course

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) -- As long as a golf course has a valid beer license, golfers can have a brew at the end of the course or any of the 18 holes.

That's according to a new opinion of the state attorney general.

Oak Ridge resident Delisa Simpson-Schubert sought an opinion about the legality of beer sales at golf courses.

Simpson-Schubert was teed off by drunken golfers urinating near her house by the 18th hole at Tennessee Centennial Golf Course. She lives with her husband and two daughters.

The woman complained to police, but after no action was taken she resorted to videotaping the men relieving themselves.

Since then portable bathrooms have been installed on the course.
