You throw clubs at a private club?

I sometimes toss mine 5 yards for humor at one of the crappy courses I play, but I couldn't imagine chucking clubs seriously, especially at a private course.

It's just a game man...

Sure it's possible. Most private clubs have a standard of conduct that members (and their guests) are expected to maintain. Generally, I'd expect that you would receive a warning before actually being asked to leave though.....unless there was an exceptionally egregious incident.

Better learn to manage your temper.  Not much else to say.  Nobody has the right to throw temper tantrums on the course.  Time to grow up.

I agree, i use to be a club thrower, now i don't anymore. I play much better when i am not pissed. But you could be kicked off for that conduct. Private courses hold themselves to a higher standard than public courses, especially the conduct of there members. Unless your fricken loaded, and made hefty contributions to the club, then money talks. :p

Hopefully its a warning, i would seriously consider cooling down the temper.

Depends on who saw you and how many complaints were made about you.  I'd guess you will get a harsh warning, maybe even have your privileges suspended for a few weeks but doubt you'd get kicked out if this is the first time you've had any issues at the club.

You're not good enough to be throwing your clubs.

Interesting concept, is there a "good enough" to justify throwing clubs? Getting upset over a bad shot isn't reserved for only the best golfers. When I was younger I threw my clubs quite a bit, I did toss my driver once this year, but after not playing for 3 yrs I had unrealistic expectations of how I would play. Now I know it's going to take awhile and accept the bad shots.

Well, for your sake, I hope it is just a warning and you realize the seriousness of it.  If they suspend your privileges, don't be a jerk about it.  Take the punishment like a man and realize that you are wrong in what you have been doing.  Be cordial in the discussion and make apologies for your actions.  Most of all, learn from this.

If you were playing golf in my golf league, you would be warned first time and would be required to play with an officer in the next few rounds.  If you did it again, priviliges would be suspended.  3rd time, you would not be back.

Get control of yourself before you hurt yourself or someone else by throwing clubs.

Agree with this.  Once you're in a private club it's tough to kick people out.  If they did, it would be after a certain number of suspensions and would have to go to a vote of the membership or BoD.  They also don't want to lose the revenue.

Only players who are playing for big money can justify throwing clubs in my opinion (and only under special circumstances).

Under special circumstances?? There is never a reason to throw a club intentionally. It just shows that you are a basket case who can't control their temper. I don't care if its rec golf or the PGA Tour. No person should throw a club in frustration of a shot. Its dangerous, and makes you look like a ****ing idiot.

I know there's a reason for this, but it's crappy that it has to be.

I try to hold 'myself' to certain standards.  Then I don't have to care if I'm playing in a private club or public.  (or out for dinner, or at work, or at play, etc etc)

too bad people don't do that in general, then clubs and other places wouldn't have to have rules to try and get grownups to act like grownups.  Heck, once they start doing that, then behavior codes get weird and eventually dress codes get stupid and people start to worry about what kind of watch your wear and if your spats are shined correctly, or if your pockets are streamlined or puffy, and all sorts of silly stuff.

to the OP, seriously, frustration is natural, but it's time to grow up and learn to deal with it positively.

Throwing clubs is never the answer. A swear or a curse (keep in mind ladies and juniors are on the course) maybe.

My playing partner yesterday tried to throw his driver, but I forcefully stopped him and reminded him of the occasion (God knows how many awful shots I hit yesterday, but made a few good ones too).

I hope you are seriously warned and more importantly, given an opportunity to make amends (agreeing to a lesson or two at full price helps salve the breach of etiquette in my view).

Good luck and good hunting.

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
