    I left my wallet at home and didn't notice until I got to the course. That was a long day.




    I have to wonder about the IQ level of the director of golf or whoever has set those times to allow this. It has ZERO benefit to the course, and just p1sses people off. I purposely avoid two courses in my area because of this.


    The thing is though, do you ever see the course not packed? People must really love the course enough to still play ut



    There is a course in metro detroit that does 6min intervals and puts zero dollars into the operation; they operate out of a cart barn. All their profit goes towards the course. It is always in perfect condition. People always complain about the pace yet wgen ever i play it, its always packed.




    Blackheath. Love playing that course, but only if it's before 7 am.




    Blackheath is one of my favorites, but yes, you need to tee off very early. But even then, when you make the turn at 9:30 you’ll be stacked up at the tee box.



    I’d suggest doing WestWynd. GolfNow for $35, and a phenomenal course

    When the guy you got paired with uses his range finder for every shot and throws grass to check the wind.... even when the flag stick and trees are dead still!!



    Played with a young kid, who was sporting the best equipment. Don't get wrong, he was good and hit very long, but his pre shot routine of range finder and grass toss never changes. There was no wind all day!! Also he said he has played this course once a week for two years (university student in university course). I'm sorry but if you okay a course that much, you shouldn't need the range finder anymore! I was envious of how close he could hit to the pin though.

    Same guy takes 10 practice swings hits his 3 wood 10 yards, then steps up with the same routine. At this point, I usually say "that routine doesn't work" or on the 3rd practice swing I say "crap you wasted that one, it was good"

    Walked off the course after 4 holes in 1.5 hours at twilight because of this. Full Spieth UA outfit, pre-preshot routine of club point visualization followed by excessive grass tosses, then at least 3-4 practice swings, then 2 Matt Wolff twitches over the ball, followed by OK shots. Don't get me started on the putting green shenanigans.
  • Twism86Twism86 Members Posts: 416 ✭✭
    The guy you are paired with swings and misses not once, but twice in a row on the first hole!



    Got paired with a guy who swung and missed on every other shot, and sometimes multiple times. I believe he was somewhere around +24 after 3 holes.....

    I played in a charity scramble a few weeks ago put on by a family I know. Had never met two of the four. They were a married couple. She had never swung a golf club in her life, the husband had played golf but I was told the night before he asked if he had to bring his own clubs. The wife putted half of her putts off the green. She would hit a 6' foot putt 30+ feet. That was still happening on the second nine, which I found odd.



    'Twas a four man scramble turned two.

    My question, to them, not you, would be: why even bother? A time when you have to play as a team collectively to something is no time to try a sport out, especially if everyone else has paid money to be there. I remember once my dad and I played in a similar type of best-ball thing for a local golf forum. Our team was far from going to be the winning team, but we might have had a chance at a top 5. One of the guys we were with was deathly afraid of putting. He literally couldn't get a ball to the hole. I distinctly remember we all had slashed it around on one hole and he had played okay that hole and was left with a 6 footer for par. To kind of boost him up we were like "hey X, we really need you here, let's see you make it,".....the ball didn't even make it 4 feet. Bogey. Sigh, move on. Repeat x 18.

    ... when by the second hole the 2 randoms you are paired with have stood on your line while removing the flag, left their shadow over the hole while you are putting, from 1 tee box up continued to talk at normal conversation levels while you are playing from the further tee box, the talking spills over to random approach shots/putts and one of the guys continually cannot track his errant shots. If I wasn't so exhausted to begin with I would have become mentally exhausted.



    The worst part was despite playing well my opponent kept pace with me all freaking day. So much so that were tied going into the 18th hole par 5. Thankfully I figured out a slight correction to my swing on the 18th tee box which led to an eagle.

    When the three guys you are paired with have brought so much beer with them that not only will it not all fit in the built-in coolers on their carts plus the two portable coolers they brought and put in the cart baskets, but that they ask you if they could put some of it in the coolers on your cart.

    ....and then it rains 1" of water on the course at the turn, and you play the back 9 in swamp conditions.



    Still broke 100 tho, so take that golf gods.

    When the twosome you join on the first tee are giving each other crap, and have a friendly wager going, which quickly gets less friendly with each hole, and by the back nine they've forgotten you're even there and are ready to throw down.
