Tell me, would you guys be 'annoyed' by this golf course behavior? Note: Some stories are from a loooong time ago when we were young stupid and some from this past season as well. All true and some you may find funny.
#8 was a par-3 with an elevated tee just right of cart path. We're waiting to tee of as usual because the hole it tee box, lake, elevated green trees right and back of green. Guy in our group decides to fill a balloon with nitrous oxide then inhale the entire contents while standing on the edge of said elevated green. Passes out standing up, falls backwards onto cart path ... just as two senior ladies are pulling up behind us!
We're waiting on a green for the guy whose ball is farthest from the hole. He strolls onto the green carrying (in one trip from the cart) his sand wedge, putter, his towel, TWO beers, one of his golf shoes and wait ... smoking away on the last half of a doobie! We lovingly still refer to this man as "Maynard."
I'm standing over a chip shot. All lined up. Take the club away to make the stoke and one of the guys in our group screams in a Scottish accent, "rrrrRelease the Crackins!" Why? I have no idea. Still hit the chip close enough to make but had to get up off the ground due to laughing so hard.
Sometimes heard from a guy speaking into the grip end of his driver like it's a microphone after teeing up a ball for driving: "On the tee ladies and gentlemen, Bill Smith, professional golfer and part-time male prostitute." No idea the origin of this commentary.
Guy from another group drives by our green, (while we're putting, of course) to report they saw 'a hawk stomping the $hit out of a chipmunk' on #7 tee box. "It was AWESOME!!!"
XM Radio: One guy has this on his phone and a powered speaker in his cart that blasts loudly during every round. Kind of like Rodney Dangerfield from Caddy Shack. It's not uncommon for Rob to blurt out his favorite lyric interpretation from a favorite song at any point in your swing or putt. Off-key in more ways than one!
We have a couple of guys who really hit it off the tee. Weekday league play can go late so we try to hurry. Ball comes over the hill on a long par 4. "Hey, a Pro V1. Thank you cousin Paddy." Puts ball in pocket. As we're leaving the next tee we look over and laugh at the guy (always the same guy) stalking around the fairway looking for his ball. Guy drives it over and drops it where it was picked up.
Typical of one 2-some. "Bill, do you know how much a flag stick weighs? Bill: "No idea." "Well, if you'd pick the damn thing up once a round, you'd KNOW!!!" Bill to me in a hushed tone: "What do you suppose he meant by that?"
Another group of our guys pull up behind us. A guy sees I have a new driver and asks how I like it. After we chat for 10 seconds, he asks if he can hit it. This is AFTER we've all teed off and are ready to leave the teeing area. I say sure. He crushes one down the middle and LONG. He says, leave the ball there, I'm going to use that as my drive on this hole. HUGE argument ensues as we drive away from the tee box!
...And these are the guys I get to play with every Thursday night from mid-April through the end of September. Honestly, it doesn't get any better than this. I wouldn't trade Thursday nights for anything.
