Kings of Leon’s drummer Nathan Followill at war with prestigious Sydney establishment as they demand rocker adhere to their ‘outdated policy’ before entering the venue: ‘Welcome to the 1950’s’

Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has been left fuming after a prestigious Sydney golf course asked him to cover up his tattoos before entering the venue.

On Tuesday, the 43-year-old drummer, who is currently touring Australia with the American rock band, slammed the ‘bucket list course’ for their ‘outdated no tattoo policy’.

‘A Sydney bucket list golf course for me just went on the f**k it list,’ he raged on Twitter.

‘I was told I would have to cover up my tattoos due to a ‘no tattoo policy’. Welcome to the 1950’s and a hell of a way to grow the game.’

Some of Nathan’s shocked fans threw their support behind the star and criticised the establishment’s strict policy.

‘Seriously? Wow. That is hard to understand. Golf is a weird sport!’ one responded.

‘That’s a major f**k it! Sorry Nate, that really sucks,’ another agreed.

Nathan went on to joke he would invite the golf course bosses to his Sydney concert, but they wouldn’t be allowed to entry if they didn’t get a new tattoo.

‘I will invite them to our show but they will have to show a fresh tattoo to get in,’ he Tweeted.

While Nathan didn’t name the venue, The Australian Golf Club in Kensington and the picturesque Royal Sydney Golf Club in Rose Bay both require ‘prominent tattoos’ to be covered.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted The Australian Golf Club and Royal Sydney Golf Club for comment.  

Royal Sydney Golf Club said: ‘As our course has been closed for turfcare maintenance since Sunday, this likely occurred somewhere else. Given that, it wouldn’t be appropriate for the club to make a comment on this.’

Kings of Leon are currently touring all around Australia.

The band will be performing in Mildura, Victoria on Saturday before heading to Sydney, Queensland, Melbourne and Perth.
