Other resort courses in my area will also try their best NOT to pair people up unless necessary. Only city courses will fill to capacity at all times. I have never played the other 2 private clubs so I don’t know how they run things. It is definitely different at my club.
We received 6 inches of heavy wet snow Saturday. I usually carry and walk 18 but because of the conditions, I hired a seasonal caddie. I figured his local knowledge would help me in the tough conditions. Club choice was rather limited but it did make club choice easier:
