AFAIK, golf courses are rarely if ever public property. But most services available to both Congress and the Executive branch remain in operation during a shutdown. There's a Congressional Gym being funded as well...
Personally, I would need some sense that the other side was open to any kind of negotiation, and that hasn't been the case as far as I've seen. It's been: "You just give us everything we demand, you get less than nothing in return, and maybe we'll think about keeping the government open and the country from defaulting."
That's not really a negotiation stance... that's a hostage situation/ ransom demand.
But whatever... I'd like to see all of them unemployed ASAP.
