Single etiquette - playing through
As you can appreciate - sometimes I don't have all day to play. If I have to fit my round in around a schedule I go out and try to get around by a certain time. Recently I played at off-peak time. I caught a 3-ball on the back nine and they didn't let me through for the entire round - despite me playing a 2.20 pace from the first tee (no one was in front of me - it was really extremely off-peak - I eventually caught the 3-ball back nine, so no one had to let me through for me to play this fast). I caught them on the 13th, they were playing at 5 hour pace and that's not an exaggeration. After the 15th I decided to play right on them, because I got pissed they didn't let me through - which I found it extremely rude and a deliberate wasting of my time - They weren't hitting their drivers as far as my 9 iron. I hit a 315 yard driver on one hole (14th) after getting bored waiting (when they were out of range - and they turned back and saw it from the green). It's a club I usually keep in the bag as I'm very inconsistent with it - but I nailed it up there in the situation. After that I decided to push them and annoy them - since they were deliberately being smart not letting me through with an empty course in front. I played a par 5 as a 3 shot hole and got within 50 yards of them and they didn't acknowledge me, which I considering a very high level of rudeness. They were so slow I had to do some work and home related emails on the course to save my time later in the day at that stage (they took almost 15 minutes to clear the green from that point - looking for a ball on the same hole for over 5 minutes). The round ended up taking about an hour longer than I had expected at the turn, maybe more. If I'd know I'd have gone back in after 9.
I often play in a 2-ball and we have absolutely no issues letting singles through if they are playing fast if I'm alone or playing in a 2-ball.
I'm going to contact the club at some point about this , as it isn't clear in the club rules and member handbook how much of a complaint I have about this. I just wondered thoughts here about this specific case.
