Many private, and some public course have that rule.  Often the same clubs will have a rule about wearing your hat forwards and keeping your shirt tucked in.

Not much bothers me on the golf course, although I'm really disappointed when I have a good round going and out of nowhere I shank a 15 yard chip.

It's very common for private clubs in Scotland to prohibit members from changing in the car park, even just your shoes.

You have to do it in the changing rooms..

I don't see why people do that. Put them on at home

People who take 2 practice swings which tear up the fairway. Then take their shot which digs a 3" deep hole in the fairway. Then doesn't repair any of the massive divots or fill them with sand from their cart. Then my perfect drive ends up in one. That grinds my gears.



Those 3 divots are much deeper than they appear in the photo. After I hit my shot out of it, I repaired all 3 with the sand bottle on my cart.

Even if they repaired them you would be in it.

Ok, you wear a collared shirt and belt when you work? Or are you like a manager?

Slow play is by far the worst thing on a golf course, it throws off your rhythm, you start to play bad and it just gets frustrating. I also hate cheaters, I don't know who you think you're fooling but not me that's for sure.

Another thing is when someone dosnt efficiently drive a cart. Sometimes I feel it would just be better to walk when my parents are driving!

As a relatively new golfer I tend to get intimidated while I’m on the golf course and it’s a busy day with people waiting behind for my group to go. I assume that when I hit a bad shot the people behind me are thinking “Ooh great this guy stinks were are going to be here all day!”

 

I want to know if this is really what’s happening, if not then what does “grind your gears”?

You need to completely ignore the golfers waiting behind you...............................they are not relevant......they aren't your concern.

 

 

So long as you are keeping up and maintaining pace with the group in front of you.............you are golden.  the people behind you know this.......they don't care how bad you play.  So long as you keep up with the people in front of you.......you have nothing to worry about.    OK?  If you aren't keeping up with who you are following, then please leave the course immediately.  LOL

Golf. Golf as a whole grinds my gears. The fact that it exists and it is the only thing in the world I love as equally as much as I hate, grinds my gears.

How about a couple slowpokes ahead of you combined with a blind tee shot? I waited until the one I could see finally ambled off toward the green and waited a little more, then hit a really nice drive. Climb up over the hill and there is the other slow poke, right in my estimated landing zone. He saunters off without hinting where my ball might have landed and I never find the ball, even though it should have been in the fairway.  I like to think the guy might mention it if he saw it land, unless he was mad for me hitting into him.   I was working on a personal best, and well, it just "ground my gears."

Put my golf shoes on at home and drive in them? I keep mine in the trunk with my clubs and change my shoes before taking my clubs out. That's how basically everyone I've ever seen or known has done it. Maybe if I wore spikeless shoes I'd wear them driving, but there's no telling if I'll have to stop at the store or something on the way home so I'd rather just change my shoes.
