I paired-up at 7am on the toughest course in the area on Sunday. Groups of 5 are not allowed and this rule is in BOLD for anyone making reservations, but they arrived with 5 players anyway, so the group was split into a group of 3 and 2..and I was paired with the latter 2-some.
One of the guys couldn't hit the ball in the air to save his life. Virtually every shot was a duff. My thoughts were, what in the hell is this guy doing on a big course like this during early prime time???? Aaargh.....!!!! He did pick up a lot so I give him credit for that.
Their 3-some friends in front of us were no better. We played around in 5 hours!! Keep in mind we teed off at 7am!! Slow play like this should never happen this early in the morning, but it only takes 1 group....People like this have no business on the golf course this early!!! My group was OK, only because we kept up with their brutally slow friends in front of us. I felt horrible for everybody on the course behind this clusterFK. I wished I got out of bed 30 minutes sooner to get in front of this...
Shockingly...I played my best round of the year so far in spite of the slow play. Those duffers witnessed a pretty fine round of golf...LOL They were good company, but the slow play was painful.
