But I'm playing golf...



Edit: And we have an obnoxious group behind us, yelling ensues.

I thought there weren't any carts at Bethpage?

I believe that's just the black course.  

 

And I think he's nicknaming it 'backup Bethpage' because it takes forever to get a round in.

That's hard to believe that there are obnoxious golfers in the city.

It's in the middle of suburbia, for what it's worth.

There was some serious yelling. Not me but two guys were coming to blows. Guy in fivesome behind us complaining we were slow but as you can see in photo, two groups are waiting on the par 3 ahead of us. We couldn't go anywhere. Idiot. I'm really good at dialing these guys out. Hit my drive and the fairway while they were having a frank and serious discussion. Felt bad for the guys in my group. It ruined their round.

Anyways I complain about slow play but I accept it's a fact of life. I'm not gonna transfer that negative energy to the group ahead of me. I'll do that here. a1_smile.gif. By posting a photo. a1_smile.gif

I think some people just take the issue of slow play too seriously.. I can't imagine what would drive some idiot to come to or almost come to blows about it! I'll chalk it up to stupidity!

I'm glad it didn't ruin your round though!

Based on the picture, it looks like rioting is about to commence.  j/k

Played 36 at Bethpage with the team yesterday. Our 7am round wasn't awful but we went back out around 1:30 on the blue and I was coming up 18 in the dark.....

People get grumpy at Bethpage, though usually more so on the red course because those are the guys that didn't get up early enough to get a tee time on black and got stuck playing red (which is a pretty tough course too).

But I was born and raised in New York. Bethpage is on the Island, but played by the city dwellers.

If someone is quick to blow up golf is probably not the best sport for them
