The pace of play in the game of golf has become ridiculous. I will refuse to play on the weekends unless a family member is visiting. I know it’s all about making money reguardless of skill level, but I believe there should be some local course rule changes to adapt to the times.
Spread out the tee times
Stop booking tee times ten minutes apart. Even the best players have difficulty finishing a hole in 10 minutes or less.
If you have a group of four eighty-year-olds, don’t let them go out first and put them in front of four groups of scratch golfers.
Have a specific time of day where you let amateurs and kids play. Spread the tee times about 30 minutes apart to allow for lost ball searching and hitting 3 topped shots out of the fairway.
Some of us don’t like to ride in a cart. We don’t want to be intimidated by carts trying to run us over in the fairway.
