I have to ask how they handle it at the one course I play at with 27 holes, but I’m inclined to agree with the starter here.
Delaying a group from beginning their round seems less disruptive than delaying a group in the middle of their round. If the group that started at 7:30 was the one that showed up to turn at 9:30 which the starter made you wait for, then yea I think that’s the right thing to do, given that’s their “allotted” time slot. If it was the 7:40 group and they showed up early I can see making them wait.
A bunker in the middle of a green is dumb.
A tree in the middle of the fairway I care less about. Don’t hit your drive in the middle, then. I’ve seen bunkers in the middle of fairways and people know to avoid them, but for some reason they don’t if it’s a tree?

Watched this with the kids for the first time yesterday. Some of the special effects haven't aged particularly well, but the story is still a thrill ride. Solid birdie.

Wow. Just... wow. It's been decades since I've seen this, and now I remember why. It is horrible. Kevin Na's 16.
Sounds like those folks have some common sense. I find bunkers in the middle of greens gimmicky, as I do trees in the middle of a fairway! Stripe a drive right down the middle and you have tree trouble? What the heck?..
