Callum Borchers of The Boston Globe with the funny if it weren't so embarrassing brouhaha at Weston Golf Club, where it got heated over guests wearing jeans for a nightcap meeting in the clubhouse.
It’s unclear what kind of denim people in the group were wearing that September night, but as Stephen and Charlotte Weeple walked toward the clubhouse around 10:45 p.m, they were intercepted by club president Tom Ferry. The Weeples are not members but they and other guests were meeting Weston GC members for a nightcap in the clubhouse bar.
Ferry believed the Weeples were in violation of the dress code and used profane language to tell them jeans are not allowed on the grounds, according to a letter the couple wrote to the club’s directors.
Charlotte Weeple declined to comment, but in her letter to the board, obtained by The Boston Globe, she said she thought Ferry was joking until he called her derogatory names, igniting an animated shouting match between her husband and Ferry.
At 10:58, Weston police received a 911 call reporting a fist fight in progress.
Maybe this is the turning point in the utterly insane saga that is denim on country club grounds?
