so, tradition says you are supposed to buy drinks for everyone in the clubhouse when you make an ace. the question is, if you had an ace, did you buy the drinks for everyone? or if you havent made one, would you buy the drinks hypothetically if you made one in the future?


full disclosure - i made an ace a few years ago and i did not buy drinks in the clubhouse. i bought drinks for the 2 other guys that were with me (my friends) who witnessed it, but i didnt announce that i made an ace when we went to the clubhouse cos people would have been hounding me to buy their drinks. i have never been one who agreed with that "tradition".

Unfortunately, we don't get any money prize for shooting an ace, so no, I would not buy drinks for everyone in the clubhouse. Would perhaps depend on how many was there. 3-4 people would not be a problem, but 10+ and we are talking some money. Not everyone can afford or want to put their money in drinks for a bunch of people, it is something I understand very much.

i'll be damned if i'm gonna buy drinks for a bunch of rag-tags i don't even know; half of whom don't even actually play golf, they just chip balls and put then get wasted with the other old men.

Yes and no. I did for my first one because I made it in the Club Championship in 1989, got half of a $2400 pot. Two of us aced the same hole 20 minutes apart, so we split the $400 bar tab.

My 2nd one was during casual play with people I didn't even know before meeting them on the first tee, so I just slipped out to the parking lot and drove away. I don't feel obligated to buy drinks for a crowd of strangers. If I had been playing with friends, then I would have probably suggested that we go to a local bar where we often go after playing... but not to the clubhouse bar.

LMAO. Sounds like our clubhouse bars are similar.

If I did it during a club tournament (we have 24-32 people show once a month) I certainly would for our membership only . The club spots you $300 so that pays for the drinks and more, I bet.

Otherwise, not a chance. That's an old tradition and has nothing to do with being gentlemanly or fair - it was just something the rich buddies did to/for one another.

When I think about the drunk idiots who barfly at the clubhouse (some even have heckled me while I am chipping/putting on 18 at ONE course), monopolize the bartender when I am trying to get a quick to-go drink or dog at the turn, play liars' dice at 100 decibels....I would never, ever, buy any one of them a drink even if I got paid 2-1 for doing so. I hate those jerks. And 'those jerks' are at almost every public course.

Poll answer - No, not for the clubhouse.

For my group, yes even if they're strangers.

When I got mine, it was rainy, and the only people on the course or in the clubhouse were myself, the 2 guys I was playing with, and the guy running the course... so I did purchase drinks for us all... but if there were more there, not a chance. For the people in my group, definitely.

My hole in ones have come on public courses. I really saw no reason to buy drinks for 20-50 strangers. If I had one in league or belonged to a private course I might have felt differntly.

    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.

    • Just a pack of lazy ex-competitors or non-winners who are taking the easy road of mediocre playing. A player can finish DFL in all 15 tournaments and gross over $1.8 mil. And that’s playing three round tournaments. LIV honestly thinks that’s a model for growing the game? Such a shame that Cam can be on possibly the height of his career and throw away that desire that got him on the PGA TOUR in the first place. It’s sports. Professional sports. We all understand someone’s wanting to make more money and do less. But when it come to professional sports, that’s seldom a winning model or a respected one.  Bottom line is it’s the fans that have made these players wealthy. Sports produce nothing for people but entertainment. If it weren’t for our love of these games, it would be a hobby alone. Essentially these ass clowns are defecting and turning their backs on what/ who  made them able to even pursue this semi-retired, exhibition money grab. I have no respect for them. Not that it matters at all apparently.
    • You could try and mount a thick comforter behind the net as well. It should absorb any ball with little to no bounce back. But yes, slack in the net is preferred to prevent a possible "Testicular Event"....
    • This illustrates the difference between what you MUST do and what you really SHOULD do. One little nit with the underlined bit, as soon as you dropped the ball with the intention to put it into play, it is in play.  It may be in a wrong place, as it was in this case, but its in play.  There's a difference in how you handle playing from a Wrong Place, as compared to playing a ball not in play (Wrong Ball), but its really beyond the focus of this thread.
