  • LefthookLefthook Golf nerd Members Posts: 3,289 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭'ve been waiting on every shot for the last 5-6 holes on a group of 8 people, 4 caddies and 4 players. At least two of the players have completely lost their game, past the point where they manage to get the ball back in play on first try. Nevertheless they keep looking for every ball and take their time over every single shot - and the group moves forward at turtle speed. And then, as the clouds are getting darker and rain starts coming down, one of the players walks back from the green towards where you stand, waiting for the green to clear: "I have to hit a second ball... you see, we're playing this Ryder Cup format match"... You have 7 holes left of the round, you know for certain that it will be dark and you'll be soaking wet before you reach the club house. And all you're looking forward to by now is a pint in the club house.

    You’re on the hole farthest from the clubhouse and not a port-a-John anywhere on the golf course and your colitis acts up. And your wet wipes in your bag have dried out.

    It is raining. It has been raining for 36 hours. Courses are closed. old knee is playing up so an ideal opportunity to rest, have physio and test the quality of my beer selection.

    When, after turning in your card from day one of your club championship, you are handed a second scorecard, and when you ask why they are handing out tomorrow's card today, they ask you how you didn't know it was a 36-hole day...

    When the guy you are playing with takes a shovel full of the tee box with his driver.

    When you catch a group on 11 and watch this threesome hit no less than 3 balls apiece none of which came close to finding the fairway. They never did let us play through was brutal to play and even more brutal to watch. I would bet one of them lost 18 balls on the back 9. Well let me rephrase that he left 18 balls cause if he hit it bad he didn't go get them. Thank good ness or would have been worse searching for some of them lol.

    You tee off 25 minutes after the group ahead of you...then have to wait for them to clear the green on the 2nd hole.

    You are on the tee box talking to the ranger and the group in front of you each takes a mulligan after parking their carts almost on the tee box and he says nothing.

    You hear screams coming from the on-course restroom buildings.

    Also, you drive 45 minutes to a course and they do not take credit cards and no one in the group has enough cash to pay for the green fees.

    Was this in 2019?

    When it's the middle of league playoffs, they have just aerated the entire course, you are playing the 9-hole side of the course that punishes your shot shape and your opponent with a 34 course handicap makes the crowd pleasing 2 for 1 on the par-3 second hole.

    When you show up for a tournament wearing shorts and a polo shirt, and a few holes in the cold front that was forecast for that evening shows up early, bringing wind, rain, drastically lower temperatures, and a corresponding drop in motivation.

    You get matched up with a group that has no business being on a course. Not only are they slow and terrible golfers but they have no idea how to keep moving along during the round (leaving carts really far away from the green, forgetting clubs, etc.). Makes for an interesting day.
