Topless putting

A strip club in New York offers a golf-practice area and club repair to comply with local law.

It's tough to run a strip club these days. In the city of College Point, N.Y., stringent regulations dictate that all adult businesses dedicate at least 60 percent of their space to non-adult activities. What are those, exactly? Shooting marbles? Playing teeter-totter?

Owners of the Vibrations Gentlemen's Club have found a novel way to comply with the law: They've installed an indoor putting green.


As almost-nude unwed mothers with breast implants slide up and down brass poles, men can now enjoy putting a golf ball across a patch of AstroTurf. The club's owners believe that the same guys who like golfing probably also are familiar with the concept of a strip joint.

"A lot of the topless bar's customers are interested," barmaid Carla Mancini told Newsday. "They come back and bring their clubs. More customers are coming back than I expected."

The genius behind designing the golf area, Ron Dorham, says the facility also offers a while-you-wait service: "I fix your clubs or make you a custom set while you have a drink at the bar."

Dorham did not say whether the indoor green featured miniature windmills.
