I don't like to play golf for big money (maybe a 10-10-10 nassau or something), but a lot of the guys I play with exchange as much as $400 in a round on betting.  And these guys are laughing, talking, getting high and drinking beer the entire round.  And giving their opponent the occasional three footer.  You can be both competitive and social.  These aren't mutually exclusive ideas.

I think it is what you want it to be. When I want to get in 9 holes after work and no one is available, of course I'll play by myself. Of course, it's no fun to make a birdie that no one else sees. Playing with someone else gives you an opportunity to watch someone else and view your game from a different perspective. As far as people being afraid of the social aspect taking away their concentration on the game, I don't really agree. I can't remember where I read this and I feel like I've seen it in multiple places, but staying totally mentally engaged for 4 hours is nearly impossible. You want to save that mental energy for your pre-shot routine and your swing. In between shots, having someone to BS with will probably HELP your game.
