Sorry, I didn't mean all women. There are a few that I have played with who have very good pace of play and and are respectful to other golfers, like yourself. There just seem to be a lot of women who are slow and obnoxious at my course.

I understand. They're at my course too.

Reallllllllllllllllllly slow players. My brother and I skipped 3 holes yesterday because the group 2 ahead of us were playing so slow. Every shot they would sit there and stare at their bag like it would tell them what to it and took forever on the green.

 

Other than that, people who don't say fore

 

and when i slice my drive, hate that.

I much prefer slow players in front of me than slow players in my group. Think I'll start a thread with a poll on that a little later, I'm on an iPhone now.

What really "grinds my gears" is when I have the misfortune of being paired up with some ya-hoo who honestly believes that answering his text messages are more important than life it self.

 

I completely ignore these ingrates and usually by the 9th hole turn they seem to disappear.

I agree as well, I'm usually playing with my brothers and we all seem to play pretty quickly, and if one of  is playing slow we just tell em to hurry it up

OMG- that is so true. I'm not sure I've thought that through, but when I'm with slow players in my group, I get very uncomfortable and it saps enjoyment from the round, moreso than when the slow play is ahead. Why is that????

I just annoy the hell out of them until they hurry up.

I will say things on the green and tee like, "Guys, we need to pick up the pace." But it doesn't help.  

 

One time, it got so painfully slow with two older retirees that I was considering heading to my car to go home as we passed it near the 7th hole. It was a par 3, and we let a twosome pass.... so rather than go home, I joined the twosome and played ahead! Since I just met the two retirees I was with and we had only played 6 holes, I just switched to the faster twosome. A bit tacky, but I don't care if they thought I was rude, because I thought they were rude for not speeding up. From then on, the day was a pleasure.

For me it's because I feel a responsibility to get my group back on pace, I don't want to be a traffic cop I just want to play golf. If it's the group in front if me I have no responsibility nor avenue for speeding things up.

??? Why would a single have no rights, wouldn't they have just as much "rights" as anyone else on the course?

I know seriously. If i heard that i would have laid the hammer down, shorty style :beer:

 

 

This only happen once to me, but this group in front of my group was so slow, we skipped a hole to cut infront of them. They were taking 20-30 minutes a whole. I think our grip finished something lik 6 holes ahead of them. That is insane. They were playing this 2 man best ball scramble thing, and they would just sit there while on person hit, get in their carts and then go watch another. It was just painful.

It used to say - but no longer does - that a single has no standing on the course. It was in the rules (though in the etiquette/etc. sections, not as a rule for which you could get penalty strokes).

I guess that was removed long before I started playing.

I dunno, it appears the rule was around as recently as 2004, so not very long ago at all in the grand scheme of things.
