BM schedules SS12 activities during DH parenting time

This is a long vent. 

So a feww years ago MIL decided she loved to golf.

She got herself a membership to a private golf club and became completely obsessed. As soon as SS turned 10 and was officially allowed to go she would take him with her to go golfing. She has paid for him to golf and bought him lessons and everything. They would spend Saturday mornings and whenever MIL wanted going golfing. SS was never really good at it or interested on his own(he likes basketball and wrestling). 

DH is not parentng SS12

Okay so here goes( a bit lengthy)

DH seems oblivious to SS12 manipulations. When I bring it up he makes excuses for SS12 and tells me he is a good kid.

The past few weekends and days he has been "forgetting" his bookbag(with homework) at BM house. DH gives lecture about how important homework is then does nothing but spends hundreds of dollars on the kid and lets him play videogames.

His grades are slipping. DH gives lecture but refers kid to me for privileges such as videogames.
