Your favorite golf music?

85 posts in this topic

Whether it be a cold and windy day out on the links, or a steamy furnace on the driving range, sometimes nothing is better than some music to keep you company?

What are some of your favorite songs or bands to pump you up for your next tee shot, or calm you down for that clutch 6-footer?


I find it a huge help if I have some Kasabian or Muse resonating through my ears, but sometimes I need the classical sounds of Prokofiev or Rachminov to calm me down.

The music of Mother Nature is all I can ever imagine needing or wanting. Birds singing, squirrels chattering, the wind in the trees. Why would anyone want to be out on a beautiful day and sully it with anything man made?

If ever there were two things that didn't go together, it's golf and music. What sort of %$#@#$% plays music whilst golfing?

I played a round a month or so ago, and we let this kid who was probably 14-16 years old play through. He was playing solo and just rocking out to some rowdy metal music on his headphones and he was playing lights out for the two + holes I saw him play...I was impressed to say the least. He was walking like he probably pounded a 2 liter of mountain dew right before he jumped on the course...

I start every round by sitting in my car and listening to this:


...seriously, I'm with the "sounds of nature" crew - it's one of the main reasons I play golf: the peace and quiet.

I have never listened, or even wanted to listen, to music while I golf. Played with a guy a couple of times that always had headphones and was putting in, taking out, adjusting, just the most annoying thing ever. I used to take a small FM radio with me to keep up with the Cardinals score as I played. When there was downtime I might flip it on to check the score. Now with cellphones, I can check at any time.

I never listen to music when I'm playing but I usually have the soundtrack to "The Legend of Bagger Vance" running around in my head. I love the work of Rachel Portman who composed and performed the music for this film, and this is some of her best work.

I never ever ever ever ever listen to music during a round. I also think that "bring a radio with you on your golf cart to listen to your favorite music" guy that you run into on a public course; I think that guy should be sent to Gitmo for water-boarding.

HOWEVER....

I listen to music on the range a lot...especially in the spring when all the d*ckbags are there to warm up for their South Carolina trip and say the word "f@ggot" a lot between 130 yard 7-irons. Plus, I like music on the range because I can block out what's happening around me a little easier, allowing me to focus on what I'm working on.

I like to listen to rhythmic music when on the range, so I usually listen to something in the reggae/hiphop/soul universe. I have a mix called "driving range classics" (lol@the title) of about 550 songs that I just put on shuffle. Most of it has a good groove to it. I'm a big indie rock dude, but I'm not going to listen to Guided by Voices or Pavement on the range. Instead, it's Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest, Toots & the Maytals, Parliament Funkadelic, Prince, MF Doom....somethin' like that.

I recently made a trip to Scotland with my wife. I played Carnoustie and The Old Course, and since I was alone I wore the ipod for the first time. It was fantastic, it put me in a more magical place believe it or not. The key is having headphones on that allow you to hear everything outside of them while listening to your tunes.

A buddy of mine and I belong to Country Clubs a couple miles from each other so we exchange rounds once a month. When we do we bring a battery powered ipod speaker setup and play each other our favorite tunes through the round. We started it in his member guest and found it really kept us loose... so loose that we won the derby at the tournament ($1500!). Some people can't do it, they just don't have the frame of mind. But if you do, it is great to have some tunes on, it teaches you to remain within yourself... relax and not let outside stuff distract from your game.

Driving to or returning from golf... John Sebastian Bach, especially BWV 1006a. Air on a G String is not bad either.

Crank the Pendulum. Nothing better than some thumping beats while on the grind.

Send me to gitmo because I love some classic 70's rock while I play. It's not at a loud volume and remains in the cart the whole time. My playing partners comment how much they enjoy the music too. Nothing like hearing momma told me when I was young... Baby be a simple kind of man... Keeps things light hearted

I like the natural sounds and quite of the course. I really wouldn't want to listen to anything while playing. In the gym I like breakcore like Venetian Snares or some old fugazi.

    • This is why I joined a Country Club here in No. Virginia, when I first moved to the area, I couldn't believe it took me 5-5.5 hours to play 18 holes on the weekend.  That lasted a couple of summers and then I took the dive to joining a Country Club, which for me is well worth the cost. 
    • I went through the same experimentation phase with my "standard" clubs when I first began thinking about single length clubs a couple years ago, and as @inthecup mentioned, the results were not good -- the gaps were not good, the swing weights were different (because the head weights were different), lies were wrong, etc. But, I saw enough of an improvement in ball striking (i.e. not hitting fat as often on the long irons) that I tried the Pinhawks (ValueGolf). Aaron @ Value Golf has been selling Pinhawks for a couple years, but increasing demand for single length irons seems to outstrip supply occasionally (resulting in stock-outs). So if you're serious about trying it, sooner would be better than later -- I recently had to wait 30 days to send a contest winner their iron heads because they were completely out and were waiting for their next manufacturing run to be delivered.  
    • That sounds less like a slow play issue and more like a no play issue. I'd imagine your guys plopped down somewhere for a late afternoon picnic. They probably engaged in a few ball-hunting expeditions and may have taken a swim in a water hazard.  
    • Have been using one for a few months now and love it.  Has taken about 3 putts off my normal putts per round average.  Where I see the biggest difference is with my lag putting.  Has not made any difference with short putts, but I tend to miss the center of the face on longer putts and I have noticed a pretty significant difference.  The ball gets closer to the hole whereas my old Scotty would spray it further left, right, or short.   I am very confident it is giving me a chance at less 3 putts which was the biggest reason I bought one.   Its a very legit putter.  Worth trying out, but absolutely make sure to go to someone who knows how to fit for a putter.
    • I usually play munis. I try to have no time expectations (or for that matter, game expectations lol) when playing golf. I leave my house 45 minutes before a round, and usually get home 5 hours and thirty minutes later. 18 holes is anywhere from 4 to 4.5 hours. If I have later appointments I book golf earlier.  Over the past month I have invited a new person to golf on two separate occasions. (we are not trying to grow the game, just have an enjoyable outing with family or friend) We planned only 9 holes. Walking 9 holes and flailing at a little white ball tires a new comer. They have no idea of what pace of play means. We explained it and played pick up the f-----g ball if we started losing contact with those in front. We have a local 9 hole muni. It is often populated by occasional golfers. It is rated as intermediate difficulty. It is often slower on weekends and holidays. If I want to play there I either pick a different time or smell the roses.  If its two non golfing couples playing in front of us, I smell the roses. They have no clue what pace of play means, nor do they care. To me "golf is too slow" sounds like road rage. Golf is not instant gratification. Never has been. Need will be.
