Some people just cant bring themselves to unplug from their electronic devices. Im with you, no music on the course or the range. Golf is my escape and that means, other than the GPS app on my smartphone, no electronic devices, no music.

so no electronic stuff other than the stuff you use. got it.
your post is a little hypocritical, dont you think?
Not at all. I use the GPS app on my phone because its a useful tool. Its not the same as playing music or checking emails. Nice try though.
At some point I intend to buy a laser rangefinder and at the point the phone will be turned off or left in the glovebox of my car.
On my way to the course I'll play Lil Wayne, Kanye West, 2pac, Miri Ben Ari or older hip-hop.
If I am by myself and on the course I usually play, I generally listen to Yo Yo Ma on the cello with headphones.
If it's a new course that I rarely play or have never played, I don't listen to anything because I want to take in my surroundings and enjoy every new thing that I can.
I never listen to anything when there are others in my group.
total agreement you with....my Son plays Baseball and my Daughter plays Softball, it amazes me that at every game the parents that watch their phones while their child is at bat and during the entire game....then act like a duh..what happened?...
People laugh at me cause I don't even own a Smartphone....still have what I call "A Dumbphone" don't need the internet or email on my phone.....
It is so bad that we were the only parents at 1 of my Daughters games cause it got called because of the heat and the coach sent an email out just 1hr before the game. Me or my Wife don't have email on our phones, and the coach was like "What really you don't have email on your phone, maybe I should have called then"...the weather was beautiful so why would we have thought the game would have been called....
So much as passed us by imho with all the high tech gadgets on the market....the #1 thing I feel is actually interacting with other people face 2 face...or phone 2 phone (by calling them, not texting them, or FB them)
I don't personally listen to music when i golf but thats cause I generally only golf with friends and like chatting with them. however music, noise or even people talking while I swing doesn't bother me. I just don't like silence and then a shreeking sound right in the middle of my swing. but if its constant noise thats cool with me. Now for people that say they do like music while they play a round of golf would you be upset if people were talking while you swung a club?
This is half the reason I play golf. On the course I play most often, the back nine was designed all split apart over a great deal of woods and countryside. Not a single house to be found except by the 10th tee. When our group is out there, you basically feel all alone, and it's great.
If there is someone talking loudly on the range, and I can't move, hopefully I'll have my ear phones and I'll put an instrumental on repeat.
Sometimes you find a piece of music that you're hooked on. I'll keep listening on the range of that happens. Smartphone such a game changer, obvious, but take it for granted now.
I tend to listen to music while playing. Like some relaxing stuff like Nas, Pac, Common, NWA, Wu Tang, Andre Nickatina, OutKast, Big L, Big Pun, Mobb Deep, Pub Enemy. If you get my drift. In fact, I'll send anyone an autographed picture of Robert Streb if they listen to half of this.
I've never even heard of any of these groups /people, let alone their music.
I never listen to music on the course. Concentration is needed.
So many times I see folks pissed off as they are loading their clubs in the car.
Listen, unless you are getting paid to play golf, have fun. My son (3) all he wants to do is play ball. We have a blast.
**IF** I were to play music on the course, I'd probably opt for something soothing like Patsy Cline or Alison Krauss, which I suspect would irritate all the under 40 crowd just about as much as their music does me. So keep it turned down, or let's agree to just listen to nature. If you want to wear ear buds, that's fine too, I don't mind ignoring you either.
