RANT! Golf at a decent speed

I play a round of in 4 hours and 15 minutes (faster if I am with some of my best friends). If I am golfing in a two-some then I will be faster still.

While most courses are big on keeping the golfers moving, there is a limit to what is realistic. There is no reason for a two-some that is playing after a four-some to hit into the group. They are going to be slower than you are – deal with it. They have more people than you do so they can probably take you in a fight.

If you are in that much of a hurry that you can’t afford to take 4:15 or 4:30, take up a new hobby! If you are sitting behind a four-some and they are playing at a reasonable speed than just take your time.

  • Hit a few extra putts.
  • Enjoy the fresh air.
  • Find elephants and zebras in the clouds like you did when you were a kid.
  • Watch the geese make a mess of the course.
  • Scare frogs into the water hazards. But…

…DON’T PUSH THE GROUP AHEAD OF YOU IF THEY ARE ALREADY KEEPING A GOOD PACE! LET THEM ENJOY THEIR GAME AND EXCURSION!

I am done with this topic for now but I reserve the right to rant more on it someday.
