Answer:  GREENS FEE

(Awesome Saint Paddy’s Day pun!  It’s too bad the Jumble isn’t in color today.  They can only suggest the color green.  None of the clue words were green.  Nope, they’re all old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “groof” having been used before.  I thought “stulea” was a great jumble.  I had to back into it.  Not sure if it was all that hard.  Some days I’m just not as patient as I should be.

The answer letter layout was grand!  It made for a naggin jumble.

The cartoon is great too.  I liked how the restaurant was opposite a putting green.  And, the whole thing is not a silly St. Paddy’s Day cliché.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I agree, another very strong pun and puzzle. They’re on a roll with challenging, well-crafted puzzles. I loved that they found a way to use a St. Patrick’s Day theme without an obvious holiday answer.

    I got Salute on the second look. Though it took three looks for Enough. The answer came to me fairly quickly, even before I got Enough, but I didn’t have to back into it. 🙂
