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.

    +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.

    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.

    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...

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
