I find spitting to be pretty uncouth behavior.  In some environments it is perfectly acceptable, but those are few and far between.  Golf is not one of them.

Bull... I don't spit anywhere, on or off the course.  Why would I?  I don't chew tobacco, I don't hawk up loogees.  There is nothing wrong with swallowing spit.  You do it all the time eating and drin

Depends on the location (and nature) of the spitting. This sounds like a Seinfeld episode.

what about all the bird and animal feces on the course? Your outside spit all your want, just not on the green.

I don't have a problem with spitting in general. Like Iacas I wouldn't spit on the green or tees and wouldn't look favorably on someone who did. So, I voted for 2.

What the hell are you doing.... crawling around with your face in the dirt?  I've never eaten dung while playing golf, even though there is goose poop all over the place.  I've seen guys lick their golf ball to clean it.... if your one of those then I'd recommend trying the ball washer.

lol, i think you are misunderstanding me. Im saying there is animal feces all over the course so it shouldnt matter if you are spitting in the grass with the poop.

I think it makes the person look like a caveman.

So spitting for me is a no no anywhere, golf course or street

EDIT: Pissing is different...no one would dare piss on the green or fairway ( I hope )...and pissing can be a must....spitting is never a must...unless a bug flies in your mouth or something

Spitting is what children do in the playground to make themselves look big and clever before they take up smoking and drinking. I think the person spitting for the sake of it is disgusting and am likely to say so if I find it particularly offensive or they're doing it repeatedly.

Some of the more ridiculous posts I have ever seen here... Get over yourselves.

I spit on the course, however infrequent, but not on the green/fringe/teebox/anywhere playing partners might walk.

it's funny how some people think it's okay to piss on the course but not spit. lol. spitting on the course is like rain drops in the ocean. seriously if you can piss on the course you might as well be able to take a shit right? the geese at my home course do all over the place. if its not in a place where someones hand is going to get close to it like marking on the green or a loogie where im going to tee my ball up, i dont think its that serious (the spit that is)

Exactly!! Spit in emergency situations and the same for pissing since that is more acceptable!! L.O.L!!!!

I voted the second option, I don't think I have more than a couple of times, but I think some people are being a bit ridiculous about all of this. Do people spit? yes. Is it unecessary? yes. Will it continue to happen (hopefully off the greens)? yes.

My humblest apologies for being brought up with a little common decency.

Just because you find it acceptable to spit, it doesn't neccessarily follow that others do likewise. It's not about being 'holier than thou', it's about a difference of opinion. I realise it's 98% water and it's not harming anyone, I just don't do it myself.

Don't spit on the green/fringe or teebox and we'll get along just fine. I used to chew tobacco, but would spit at the base of trees or in bushes while on the course.
