Smoking while playing

Do people who smoke during a round bother you?

No big deal I just stay up wind.

How about cigars?

I do like the smell of them and have smoked one or two while playing a couple of times. I don't buy them or really smoke at all, just offered one.

How about weed?

Had a group that I played with sometimes and a couple of the guys smoked. They would always ride together. If you seen them pull off the side of the fairway stopped. They were smoking out of a pipe.Kind of Cheech and Chong type of guys. Funny.

How about smokeless tobacco?

I dipped for years. Still would if it was a lot healthier. It's a nasty habit though.

    Only thing that really bothers me is the illegal stuff. I don't want to be associated with it.



    I tell people I don't care if they smoke while we play, even sharing a cart, but truthfully I would rather they didn't. It is not a make or break type of deal with me.

    to each their own, as long it does not impact pace of play, or turn you into an idiot, enjoy yourself on the course. It has never bothered me.



    I would rather play with someone that is high as opposed to drunk.

    I much prefer not to be around it. I'm not interested in mixing smoking and golf.



    My views are:

    (1) Cigarettes are straight poison and no one should regularly smoke them--period.

    (2) Cigars are pungent and can be problematic. They're better done as an everyone or no one type thing.

    (3) Weed on the course? Never seen that. I don't see the point but I don't think it would be as noticeable as a cigar, which is good.

    I smoked for over 20 years, but quit several years ago. I couldn’t care less if someone smokes on the golf course. The only thing that bothers me is when people throw their cigarette butts in the ground. Put it out, hang on to it, and throw it in one of the 18 tee box trash cans.



    I occasionally smoke cigars on the course myself. I used to bring one for every round, but now it maybe 2-3 a year.



    As for weed, if I didn’t have to pass hair drug tests for work, I’d probably be smoking it with them. I love the smell of cigars and weed, I just can’t smoke the fun stuff. One of these days, I’ll retire or win the lotto and not have to worry about it, lol. Till then, I’ll tow the line, but anyone else partaking has no effect on me. I’m not the one that has to go to jail if they get caught with it, and I don’t have to worry about providing for my family because I failed a drug test and lost my job.

    Don't really care what others are doing out there, but leaving cigrit butts on the greens and teeboxes however **** me off big time. Weed, I smoke it every time I play, with very few exceptions, and its legal here now so no concerns that way. But we aren't leaving roaches behind and we aren't blowing smoke at people so it does not affect anyone.

    Don't throw butts on the ground and don't spit juice on the green. That's it.

    I smoked for 25 years but quit 3 years ago, i actually vape now and i vape while im on the course, and no, other people smoking on the course wouldnt bother me, as long as they don't just throw the butts on the floor, i used to hate that even when i smoked.



    What is "dipping"? (im not googling that on the works PC!)

    I like to smoke a cigar during a round sometimes. So no, can't say I am bothered if others do it.



    As for weed, I don't care if other people smoke weed on the course. I just prefer it not be anyone in my foursome since it's still illegal. The minute they make it legal, go nuts.

    Don't care if people smoke, but I just can not stand seeing cigarette butts on the course. It amazes me that smokers seem to think that it's okay to just toss cigarette butts on the ground. Golf course, sidewalk, wherever they please. It really isn't that hard to put them in a trash can on the next tee box. Or just pile them up in your cart and toss them after the round or something. Definitely one of my biggest pet peeves on the golf course.



    I played with a guy recently who would vape on the greens. He would do it while I was putting and it was loud as ****. Kind of annoying.
  • BaitkillerBaitkiller Members Posts: 1,707 ✭✭
    I had a guy in group that vaped all day and it drove me bonkers. Not because he was vaping but because it smelled like pancakes and hot syrup and I had skipped breakfast. Had my mouth watering. it was awful. I was starving.

    Those that are against people smoking "weed" while golfing.



    How about the use as a medicinal alternative? My pain Dr said I should use it to help with severe cervical stenosis. Also, it cuts down on the need for opoids.



    I can't play much anymore regardless of which pain med I use. But without medical marijuana I couldn't play at all. I use a vape pen. Chances are you don't know when I use it. I do my best to be discreet.



    It's a touchy subject I get it. In my case it's the only way I can even attempt to play anymore. I'm barley in my 50's and used to play 80-100 rounds a year.



    Never thought I'd smoke later in life!!! It's kinda weird and funny ...

    I don't mind people smoking, as long as it's away from me. An occasional butt on the ground doesn't bother me. Dipping, with attendant spitting, is disgusting. Unfortunately, where I live, there are a lot of guys who dip. I've never played with anyone smoking weed, but they couldn't be worse than some of the drunk guys I've played with.

    Im okay with it an most people who do smoke that I run into try not to get the smoke in the groups directions or they are nice enough to ask if it bothers them. Im a casual cigar smoker especially in a scramble format where I know we are not going to shoot low enough to cover the sandbagging. To each their own. Now on the illegal stuff, Im on board with not wanting that stuff around me because you will tend to smell like those you hang out with after a four hour round and I dont want any hint of it especially since I have kids and of course licenses to protect. As far as dipping, its gross. I had a buddy who dipped and he was spewing spit everywhere. Not a pretty sight and if you ever saw a person with mouth cancer as I have due to dipping, not a pretty sight to say the least.

    Now that you ask I can't remember the last time I played with someone who smoked. So I guess it's a non issue for me.

    I don't care for any of it. Cigarettes or cigars are stupid to smoke, but if you do it well away from me it is your suicide. Dipping is disgusting. Weed is illegal and I don't want be around illegal activities. If it is medicinal then it is legal and not much to say about that.

    Would heroin help improve pace of play?

    I don't like the smell of cigarettes (anymore...I am an ex smoker but I find it pretty gross now, 10 years later). Cigars, pipes, etc aren't as bad. I'd prefer not to smell any of it during my round but whatever, not going to let it bother me either.



    The one that would bother me the least is someone smoking weed. Usually done for shorter periods and the smell doesn't bother me as much. Surprised to see so many people would be bothered by that more.

    Smoke 'em if you got 'em. I don't care. But please stop leaving your butts on the tee box or side of the green.



    Much rather share a round with someone smoking weed than the guy who is a few cocktails past seeing only one ball at address.

    Smoking dope is altogether different. I don't keep time with folks who do that.

    My only issue with weed is that it's illegal. If they make it legal, I don't have a problem if another member brings it along in my foursome. I won't smoke it, but at least I can't get in trouble by association.

    I smoke weed on the golf course, I have one of those vape pens with the oil like mizuno player so nobody can smell anything and most of the time nobody even knows I'm doing it. Cigarettes and cigars on the course don't bother me one bit, it's outside so it's not like the smell lingers.
