JJ Chronister responds to allegations made against the Grandview Golf Course regarding racial and gender bias.

The five African-American women who said they were discriminated against on Saturday at the Grandview Golf Club in Dover Township, Pennsylvania – in terms of race and gender – said Tuesday a second statement from the club is "Backpedaling" and "Backtracking" by the Club

"I do not know why they changed their story," said Carolyn Dow, one of the five women.

In the second statement on Monday, the club mentions conversations with women about the pace of the game "During the second conversation, we called on members to go according to our scorecard-listed policy, voices escalated and the police were called, to ensure a friendly solution. "

However, a statement from co-owner JJ Chronister Sunday has a very different tone to what the women have said, Stat "We are disappointed that this situation has occurred and regret that our members have felt uncomfortable in any way. "

"They are turning this story," said another of the group, Sandra Harrison. That's not how you get a decision … it's just going to cause more quarrels. "

The Women – Sandra Thompson, 50; Myneca Ojo, 56; The sisters Harrison (59), Dow (56) and Karen Crosby (58) said on Tuesday that they are experienced golfers and that they would actually keep up the pace.

On Saturday they said they were first told they were not The pace of the game was held by former York County Commissioner Steve Chronister, who they said was the owner of the club.

Later, they were confronted by Steve Chonister and his son and co-owner Jordan Christer, who is married to JJ Christer, who told them they had taken too long between the first and second half of the class. They were then asked to leave, offered their membership money back, and the police were called.

"It definitely sounds like they're backtracking," Crosby said. "I do not apologize to people I have not hurt, and suddenly the message changes because we did not agree to the meeting on Sunday."

Northern York County Regional Police Chief Mark Bentzel said that on Monday no charges were filed against two women who stayed to play the remaining nine holes of the course.

The women, including Ojo and Thompson, said Tuesday that they are interested in meeting with JJ Christer, but they need to meet a group and discuss the timing and scope of the meeting.

JJ Chronister could not be reached for comment.

In that case, the members refused to leave, so we called the police for an amicable result. The members missed holes and took a longer break after the 9th hole. We once talked to them about the pace of the game and then talked to them a second time. During the second conversation, we called on members to follow our scorecard policy, voices escalated, and police were called to ensure a mutually agreed solution.
