If there is one thing I see on the golf course that I really don't want to turn into is...the old guy with the towel attached to his belt. Just leave it on your bag.
Cigarette or cigar butts randomly strewn around the fairway. Or even worse, 3 feet from a trash can.

+1 on the cigarette butts. Cigars I don't mind so much because it's just another leaf on the ground and will eventually degrade into the grass. This is from an avid on course cigar smoker. Most of the time I'll leave the butts in the cart, which I'm sure the cart guys love cleaning up.
That, and sunflower seed shells on the green.
This and those people deserve a beat down!
Not fixing a ball mark when you're left a big ol crater. Takes about 10 seconds if done properly
Par 5 waiting for green to clear from 275 out
Playing partners comments about his swing after every shot
Guys who claim to hit it 300 off the tee only to hit it 240
This one gets to me.
One guy I play with a few times a year does this constantly. No matter how good of a shot he hits (he usually shoots in the 80s so he hits plenty of fine shots) he goes on about how poorly he struck the shot and what he needs to do to fix it with vague and often baffling golf swing terminology.
THE TOWEL!!!! Probably the single worst thing. Second would probably be jeans on the course,

Pronation when he should be supination.
Folks who step on the first tee already making excuses about their games. It's not like I am going to be following your game with bated breath.
Second on the sunflower seeds...

Too much sanity may be madness and the maddest thing of all is to see life as it is, and not as it should be. Cervantes
In golf, the human mind has much higher capabilities to screw things up than the physics has to make things better. Unknown
Only other worse place to see jeans is at the gym.
Drive to first ball, wait while player 1 goes through practice swing, changes clubs, more practice, sculls it 30 feet. Go player 2s ball and repeat then wait for the other cart to do the same **** thing. all day every day.
Following a 4 ball and watching them on the green. Flag in and out 8 times every hole (seemingly).
The torn up turf around the hole because inconsiderate douchebags insist on digging the ball out of the cup with their putter.
Beer cans tossed in the rough or woods. Why f**k up a beautiful outdoor area? Reminds me of the video on You Tube of some moron driving his Jeep through a crystal clear, fast running stream. Not across it, but downstream for a good distance.
This happens to me often but actually two guys in my group hit around 280m (310yd). Fore is shouted quite often.
rangefinder cases (and rangefinder) on the belt
I understand that cigar butts will disintegrate fairly quickly, but I don't like seeing that saliva-soaked remnant sitting like a big fat slimy slug someplace where its on ME to move it. I respectfully suggest that you field strip it yourself, and leave the shreds scattered.
And I agree with @rgk5 , there are trash cans all around most golf courses, one on every tee in most places. There's no excuse for leaving beer cans or any other trash anyplace but the trash cans.
People need to field strip their cigarette butts. We used to do that in the Marine Corps way back when.
Seeing jeans on the course will cost you 1 stroke a side. Paired with jeans, just go home
More than 1 practice swing
Saliva on the green
Cigar and cigarette butts--- I occasionally will smoke a cigar and my preferred way to dispose is to stomp it and shred it into oblivion with my spikes. Not really a fan of throwing them in the trash due to potential fire risk.
Here I thought we were talking about short shorts and Hawaiian-print shirts...not breaches of etiquette.
Summer I'm wearing cargo shorts that cost maybe $14 at Walmart 90% of the time and some nice golf pants the rest. Early spring and fall when it cool if not downright cold, everybody around here wears jeans - will never understand the faux indignation, lol. Fashionistas show up in their lululimes and bonerboss pants we won't judge you. Jeans were perfect and perfectly appropriate according to the pro on a cool, spring day at Brora a couple years ago. Made me a lot less threatening to the sheep and cows.
"Hey guys, he's wearing JEANS ---- best looking guy I've seen out here today!"
I know this is long debated, but I hate music on a golf course. I don’t want to listen to music I like when golfing, I REALLY don’t want to listen to something I don’t like...especially blaring from a cart on an adjacent hole. Its rude and tacky, in my opinion.
Where is the top pic from? Looks like a cool place.
From the maintenance shack, yes, you who leaves cigar butts in the cart, we are not exactly fans of yours!
But the absolute worst is the Finnish guys with wads of snus under there lips that they will spit just about anywhere. Small, black, oozing wet pellets all over the course. And too small to pick up with grabbers so you gotta get the gloves on, its fantastic
Brora - it was awesome, got to play it twice! (Actually wore golf pants and wind pants over them the day before - was drizzly. Second morning was really cool, but sun came out as were were on the inward nine and enjoyed awesome views from the clubhouse dining area after as well). My daughter especially loved the course and other than The Old Course is the course she still talks about the most of the ones we played.
I am guilty of using snus, but I keep an empty tin in my pocket to dispose of them or wait until I drive by one of the plentiful trash cans throughout the course. And if you see cows on the golf course jeans are absolutely fine! Here we wear jeans throughout the fall/spring seasons and nobody has an issue with it, once the snow thaws everyone tends to ditch the denim.
My biggest tacky annoyance is when somebody sees a 10:00 tee time and rolls in about 9:52, leaving 3/4 of the group waiting on them to throw their shoes on and try to "warm up" before we hold up the group behind us. Luckily our main late arrival guy has been doing much better once we brought it up to him.
