Lol! Yeah...I get the same reaction when I do that. But when the Neil Diamond comes out...it just gets ugly.

Yeah, Sweet Caroline is the only Neil song that works around here.

I honestly don't mind music if it's low, but generally I just like to listen to nature when I play.

For general play? No. For competitions? Yes - but they should implement the Local Rule.

BTW, the "assumption" I'm answering is basically what I'd assume if I were a player in a competition. I don't know how else you meant, since the Committee can't assume. They should simply implement it.

I just got finished writing up the rules sheet for our first tournament of the season and the first thing we did was put in this local rule prohibiting music on the course. It just doesn't have a place in tournament golf.

I have seen this several times and it is always annoying. You can hear the music when you are on the tee and they pull up to their green.  Why they feel the need to share their country/rap/pop/rock music with everyone is beyond me.  I am okay if it part of some outing or fund raiser but other than that.   It seemed to become a thing last year.

One week-ends when I play I usually have the PGA tour playing on the speaker. It's not loud, but I can hear it between shots etc.

I emailed the request to my Men's Club board of directors, and got confirmation that they will discuss it at their regular meeting tomorrow and consider putting it on our hard card.

I got a copy of our hard card for 2019, and the LR prohibiting the use of audio and video devices during competitions has been included.  According to the email I got today, I was not the only one with such concerns. 👍

I usually sing as loud as I can after making a good shot or putt just to annoy my friends. My go to are show tunes or Barry Manilow songs. I usually dance too when I choose Copa Cabana. 

I also sing Another One Bites the Dust when they miss a putt.

They hate me. 

:-P

Dude, if you started singing Copa Cabana while playing in my foursome I'd definitely join in. We'd probably be asked to leave.

Lee Westwood's swing was interrupted by a fan's cell phone, it happened during his backswing. Cell Phones should be turned off on the golf course, but with fans taking pictures constantly at least they should be muted. I know people forget, my phone went off during a wedding ceremony, I couldn't shut it off fast enough.

It seems to be the thing to bring a mini speaker and play music while playing golf now. I don't have a problem when everyone in the group is ok with it, but sound travels, players have to show respect to others on the course.

What do you think?

I will start by saying I HATE the new trend of music being played on the course. This trend seems to have started about 2 years ago and seems to be accelerating. Players blaring all sorts of noise, music, while playing are inconsiderate of others IMO. I have had to ask playing partners to turn the music off especially when I am addressing the ball. Am I a curmudgeon or are there others with the same opinion?

 Not sure it is a new trend, this thread started comments in 2009.

sometimes I do have music but mostly I do not. It depends on who I am golfing with.  I use a blue tooth speaker but keep the volume low so I do not disturb others.  Usually I will only hear it when very near the cart, not 10 yards away.  I figure if the people on the other holes want music they can bring their own.

To me, seems about 3-4 yrs. ago when BT speakers got hot. Really pissed me off at first, but have become accustomed to it, IF the volume is reasonable. Funny how I can tune out music and even partners talking when preparing to make a drive/shot/putt, but can't tune out a whisper. Drives me nuts...they must be talking about me...right?

I try and carry headphones with me all the time to counter this. And an epic whitenoise playlist.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

I get annoyed when I can hear someone else's music far away. The other day, I heard (really awful) music coming from another fairway. Out of curiosity, I lasered how far away they were. It was 100 yards. I don't have a problem with others listening to music, but don't throw away all pretenses at etiquette to listen to music.

That would have been a good time to drill a little stinger music at the guy.  Just kidding.  But next time, carry a small, compact air horn... and use it.  As he's hitting his shot.

Sounds like fun. What about Abba and Dancing Queen, LOL?

    • What does something like that even mean? They want to be as successful as they can? Yeah, no kidding. But the PGA Tour is run by the players, the members, who write and ratify their own rules, and hire people to enforce them and engage on their behalf with sponsors, etc. The PGA Tour largely does. The two quoted statements really contradict each other a bit - if the PGA Tour wanted "all the power" they'd be branching out across the globe far more than they are. Also, the PGA Tour granted releases for their members to play in Saudi Arabia, but only when the LIV tour was formed with events in the United States was there any real action taken. Well, others have other very real problems with LIV. And I am referring to more than just the source of funding.
    • The more I think about it - LIV isn't great, , but the PGA Tour seemingly wants all the power and that isn't great either. Golf is due for a major restructuring of power, the game doesn't just exist in America and it should be played equally on the highest level across the entire world. The only real problem I have with LIV is the dumb format. I would like to see half the season played regionally, USA, Europe, Asia, then the second half the year played globally with the top players from all of the regions, one tournament every other week similar to Formula 1. Every large region gets a single major event, and then The Masters b/c its special. LIV gets the middle eastern region .
    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.

    • Just a pack of lazy ex-competitors or non-winners who are taking the easy road of mediocre playing. A player can finish DFL in all 15 tournaments and gross over $1.8 mil. And that’s playing three round tournaments. LIV honestly thinks that’s a model for growing the game? Such a shame that Cam can be on possibly the height of his career and throw away that desire that got him on the PGA TOUR in the first place. It’s sports. Professional sports. We all understand someone’s wanting to make more money and do less. But when it come to professional sports, that’s seldom a winning model or a respected one.  Bottom line is it’s the fans that have made these players wealthy. Sports produce nothing for people but entertainment. If it weren’t for our love of these games, it would be a hobby alone. Essentially these ass clowns are defecting and turning their backs on what/ who  made them able to even pursue this semi-retired, exhibition money grab. I have no respect for them. Not that it matters at all apparently.
