When the foursome in front of you all head to the back tees and none of them get their drives to the fairway.

Actually had that happen a couple weeks ago. There is a group of guys that play at my course every Sunday who walk, play the back tees, and none of them can break 90. We normally tee off in front of them, but when we went off daylight savings time they somehow got the tee time in front of us. Let's just say that will never happen again. It was brutal 3 of the 4 took a mulligan because they failed to get their first drive in the air. The one that did get it air born sliced it into the adjoining fairway. We played through on the 5th hole thank goodness.

We had, sort of, this same experience except there were two groups of extremely old dudes teeing off from the forward tees in front of us. That made it about a 265 yard par 4, and nobody in either group could reach the green in 2! We stood on the white tee for 25 minutes, and I was fed up! 

The thing is, we were teeing off on the back 9 per club's orders. We drove back to the starter and demanded to tee off on #1 tee, since not a single golfer had teed off from it the whole time we'd been there! We asked why we were forced to tee on the back, and the starter replied that they had an outing booked for that afternoon! That's when my brain exploded! 

I told him that he would allow us to tee off on #1, or we were going inside and demanding a full refund! Do you want our money or not! We are one foursome! We're not going to hold up an entire outing that doesn't begin teeing off for a half hour! He let us go, we did not hold up any members of the outing. Hell! We never even saw any of them! Made the turn and caught up with the slowpokes on #17! so, we played the last 2 holes at a snail's pace, but I was well lubricated enough with swing oil by then to not care!

When you get paired up with a couple and he says “My wife has always wanted to learn how to play golf, so we thought we’d give this a try...”   😱

A nice local course suffers from this affliction. Guys take their girlfriends or wives to "learn" how to play golf, instead of taking them to the practice range, which this course has a really nice one, plus a lady pro for lessons, or the par 3 course, also available in the park! Since local tax money has started to improve the course, it has become a golf factory! I don't golf there now near as much as I used to when the course wasn't as nice! Kind of ironic!
