I get it when I tee off at first light, but when that shit is still going on at 10 am, it's pretty annoying.
While I agree that it is annoying, I also feel that they are there to make the course play and look better.
My son drove into a fence setup right in the middle of the fairway last night, and we just took relief from it. He probably lost 20 yards on the drive, but not a really big deal.
They are used to having balls shot towards their general direction, and many have hard hats.
