You throw clubs at a private club?

I sometimes toss mine 5 yards for humor at one of the crappy courses I play, but I couldn't imagine chucking clubs seriously, especially at a private course.

It's just a game man...

Sure it's possible. Most private clubs have a standard of conduct that members (and their guests) are expected to maintain. Generally, I'd expect that you would receive a warning before actually being asked to leave though.....unless there was an exceptionally egregious incident.

Better learn to manage your temper.  Not much else to say.  Nobody has the right to throw temper tantrums on the course.  Time to grow up.

I agree, i use to be a club thrower, now i don't anymore. I play much better when i am not pissed. But you could be kicked off for that conduct. Private courses hold themselves to a higher standard than public courses, especially the conduct of there members. Unless your fricken loaded, and made hefty contributions to the club, then money talks. :p

Hopefully its a warning, i would seriously consider cooling down the temper.

Depends on who saw you and how many complaints were made about you.  I'd guess you will get a harsh warning, maybe even have your privileges suspended for a few weeks but doubt you'd get kicked out if this is the first time you've had any issues at the club.

You're not good enough to be throwing your clubs.

Interesting concept, is there a "good enough" to justify throwing clubs? Getting upset over a bad shot isn't reserved for only the best golfers. When I was younger I threw my clubs quite a bit, I did toss my driver once this year, but after not playing for 3 yrs I had unrealistic expectations of how I would play. Now I know it's going to take awhile and accept the bad shots.

Well, for your sake, I hope it is just a warning and you realize the seriousness of it.  If they suspend your privileges, don't be a jerk about it.  Take the punishment like a man and realize that you are wrong in what you have been doing.  Be cordial in the discussion and make apologies for your actions.  Most of all, learn from this.

If you were playing golf in my golf league, you would be warned first time and would be required to play with an officer in the next few rounds.  If you did it again, priviliges would be suspended.  3rd time, you would not be back.

Get control of yourself before you hurt yourself or someone else by throwing clubs.

Agree with this.  Once you're in a private club it's tough to kick people out.  If they did, it would be after a certain number of suspensions and would have to go to a vote of the membership or BoD.  They also don't want to lose the revenue.

Only players who are playing for big money can justify throwing clubs in my opinion (and only under special circumstances).

Under special circumstances?? There is never a reason to throw a club intentionally. It just shows that you are a basket case who can't control their temper. I don't care if its rec golf or the PGA Tour. No person should throw a club in frustration of a shot. Its dangerous, and makes you look like a ****ing idiot.

I know there's a reason for this, but it's crappy that it has to be.

I try to hold 'myself' to certain standards.  Then I don't have to care if I'm playing in a private club or public.  (or out for dinner, or at work, or at play, etc etc)

too bad people don't do that in general, then clubs and other places wouldn't have to have rules to try and get grownups to act like grownups.  Heck, once they start doing that, then behavior codes get weird and eventually dress codes get stupid and people start to worry about what kind of watch your wear and if your spats are shined correctly, or if your pockets are streamlined or puffy, and all sorts of silly stuff.

to the OP, seriously, frustration is natural, but it's time to grow up and learn to deal with it positively.

Throwing clubs is never the answer. A swear or a curse (keep in mind ladies and juniors are on the course) maybe.

My playing partner yesterday tried to throw his driver, but I forcefully stopped him and reminded him of the occasion (God knows how many awful shots I hit yesterday, but made a few good ones too).

I hope you are seriously warned and more importantly, given an opportunity to make amends (agreeing to a lesson or two at full price helps salve the breach of etiquette in my view).

Good luck and good hunting.

    • It looks like the same scenario as DJ and Wattel in the open. Proximity of the golfer on the ground deforms the ground and it rolls off the blades of grass it was perched on. I think it's a bad penalty, because it's essentially random, though much more likely on very fast & sloped greens.
    • I liked Chappell as a possible pick early in the playoffs. He's a solid ballstriker with good length and the original 8 were a little thin there. If his putting has come alive during the playoffs (he's 'found' something) and his birdie average has bumped up then he would be a solid pick IMO. I think he'd be more of a contributor in fourball than foursomes with relatively weaker putting / short game than guys already on the team. Berger seems to have the most balanced game of the remaining pick options. McGirt and Woodland wouldn't be bad picks either. Justin Thomas may be a good 'chemistry' pick, but his stats for the year seem like he's got a very 'hit or miss' style of game. Maybe he was saving it for the end of the season, though? Moore would be an okay pick, but I expect he's a little short for Hazeltine (ballstriking is not his strength) and the squad already has Sneds and Zach. Duf wouldn't be a bad pick either if his game is on form and his putting has warmed up a bit.
    • On the penalty assessed to Justin Thomas, this will lead all golfers to mark their ball before putting anything but a tap in.  If he marks the ball and the places the ball back down, the ball probably won't move as it did.  With millions on the line, a player needs to mark the ball and inspect the putting surface.  Just a bad rule in my opinion but the ruling was correct.  Guilty until proven innocent.
    • If it is a municipal (city owned) course there may be no support from the city to maintain it beyond the absolute minimum. Truth is, cities have budgets and there is no money appropriated to improve it.  It really is a vicious circle.  Poorer conditions result in fewer rounds being played.  Costs out weigh revenue, rates are raised so even fewer people play the course and that results in less revenue.  It becomes an anchor on the city budget and easy prey for an investor.  So many muni courses have disappeared. John
    • After reading all these stories of how rarely it has happened to you guys I feel like an absolute menace on the golf course.   First time I ever hit into a group in front of me it was a blind approach into the green.  I drove my cart to the top of the hill to get a line on the flag.  One guy was getting his ball out of the hole and another guy was carrying the flag back to the hole.  I figured that by the time I got back to my ball they would be gone.  I lined up my shot, took several practice swings, checked my line again, and then blasted a beautiful, high, straight shot over the hill, right on line at the flag.  Pulled back up the hill and saw they were still putting.  Went up to apologise, and they congratulated me on a great shot.  He said it clipped the brim of his hat as he was tapping in and checked up a foot from the cup.  They also insisted that I play thru. Second time I did it on that course I sliced my drive two fairways over and hit into a cart on the move up the cart path. It rattled around in the cart and they both dove out of the cart for cover. Happened a few times on my home course too.  Several holes have blind drives and approaches due to all the hills in East Tennessee.  When play is slow you inevitably catch someone in a blind spot.  I got stuck behind a slow group one day and had to wait for ever shot from the 4th hole on.  By the 6th a young twosome had caught up to my group because of the slow play in front of us.  By the back nine they started getting impatient and driving onto us.  On hole 14 the preferred shot is to hit 170-200 yard layup from the tee to leave a 130-160 yard uphill shot into a blind green.  I was about 150 yards out waiting on the green to clear when they teed off.  Their ball rolled right up to my feet.  I turned around angry and hit their ball right back at them.  I was so ticked I blasted my 150 yard club at least 200 yards back at them flying over their head and into the woods behind the tees.  Didn't see them anymore that day.
