I play as a single all the time at a private club and have never had an issue with this. The vast majority of people I've come across (at public courses too) let me play through or ask if I want to pair up. On the rare occasion that someone is right behind me when I am in a group I never hesitate to let them play through.
I see it as kind of a golf karma thing...let people through you and the favor will be returned down the line.
Oh, I know, but I would have felt I was being rude if I played through without their letting me and I felt weird asking. I rarely play as a single so wasn't quite sure what the protocol was.
Maybe im not like the old school golfers, im want tthe golf rules and etiquette to evolve trough time and soon we have flying cars and all that shit :)
If I am playing in a group I will always offer a single to play through or join our group if there is room. I often go to a course as a single and typically get paired up with another golfer. However, if I go out as a single and there are multiple groups ahead of me but no one behind me (this often happens at the tail end of an outing), I take the opportunity to get some great practice in, and will work on each aspect of my game, and will often go back and replay a hole. If I am sandwiched between multiple groups as a single I just go with it and will play through if offered, which most groups do.
