Abstract

Using Bourdieu's three forms of capital (economic, social, and cultural), we demonstrate how in a short period of time these forms become part of the ritual of inclusion and exclusion in golf. Because golf on its face is not a highly masculine activity (i.e., lacking physicality, machismo, and endurance), more benign methods are used to include or exclude same gender players. The transformation of power happens quickly through four stages: the greeting, the feeling out, the chest pounding, and acceptance/ rejection. It is through these stages that one either becomes part of the capital elite or excluded. 2010
