I call this a "rookie" error. It happens every now and then (especially if both of you are in that area), but if a pair does this every hole, its a long day! Like you said, its all about communication and awareness.

One thing that can frustrate me is when my ball is past a "no carts sign".  In those instances I often take my cart partner to thier ball then grab my weapons and and walk the remainder of the hole.  I tell my cart partner "I'll walk from here".   Then after I play my ball I look back and they walked away from the cart leaving it far from the green.  Then one of us needs to walk back to get it.  Maybe I need to be a little better in comunicating, but it seems when  I say "I'll walk from here" they should know they need to pull the cart up after making thiere shot.  

I don't know why, but that made me laugh. Thanks for the morning chuckle.

3) Searching for balls.  If a player hits a wayward shot then you need to judge the best way to proceed.  There are variables but consider.  You may drop one player at their ball then the other quickly drives over to the area to help search.  You may even want both players in the cart to make their shots before joining the search.  What you want to avoid is all in the group searching for the ball while there are 3 playable balls just sitting there waiting.  Carts move quickly, you can hit your ball then get to the search area pretty fast in most cases.

Thanks ruptured thing in my calf, I am no longer able to walk. however a good majority of those I play with still do.
After we tee off, If I have a good line on my ball, I will zip over to find another players who may have difficulty finding theirs.
I should mention that I tend to be the longest in my group so rather than sitting behind them and slowly rolling up the fairway behind them like a stalker, I try to keep things moving. 

I usually toss my cap on top of their ball. I am considering starting to bring little mini flags to mark balls.
Once everyone hits, I roll up to mine, hop out and duff my second shot a few feet, and then move on!

Amusingly perhaps, I walk and I've thought about getting a few mini flags for my bag for this purpose.  I tend to walk faster than my typical group and I typically hit past them, so being able to do this would be nice.

    • Main goal: - Drop my handicap index from 20 to 15 or lower. I think I can achieve this through: - Getting much better at chipping. I blade or chunk waaaay to many chips. - Continuing improving my driver. I used to always hit a massive slice. Now I sometime do, but not always due to trying to keep my hands closed. But to get my hands closed I have been using a very strong grip. So when I don't slice I will hit somewhere from low baby fade to low baby draw. While definitely an improvement, there is still more room to go.   How I plan to achieve this: - Take a couple lessons. I've done this the past 2 or 3 seasons and it has definitely improved my game. - Actually practice more often. I rarely go to the range and even more rarely the chipping green. I will try and change that this year and hopefully go at least once a week. -Try and golf more. I'm a mature student so I don't have tonnes of discretionary income at the moment. But last season I didn't golf as much as I did the season prior. Playing regularly makes such a huge difference so I want to make sure that I'm getting those swings in.

    • This is getting into "what is an isn't a sport" territory, but Raymond Ceulemans absolutely dominated 3 cushion carom billiards.  He won 21 world championships, 19 of them coming between 1963 and 1985. On top of that he also won 3 silver and 4 bronze. His first gold came in 1963, and his last in 2001. 
    • Okay, well then would you have any recommendations for someone who hits their irons well, but struggles to hit woods and hybrids? I've heard for years and years that woods and hybrids are supposed to be easy to hit, and for me they just aren't.
