  1. Discuss "Out of Time" by Bill Yates here. I feel like I'm going to have to re-read it. I feel like I missed out on a bunch of what I should have taken away from the book. Off the top of my head: There are five causes of slow play (I'll use that word, even though 4:30 can feel like better pacing and flow than a 4:00 round) Golfers are just one of the five reasons. Par five followed by a par three is bad, especially in the first four holes. Don't let golfers hit when the fairway is clear or earlier than their tee time slot. Maintenance, pro shop employees, etc. are responsible for pacing too. Hole locations and/or hazards and other stuff can affect how quickly people play a hole, and sometimes opposite of what you might think. Signage is important. "Keeping up with the group ahead" is bad (but I'm not sure why - are they supposed to slow down on purpose?) A twosome on a crowded course of foursomes is bad. The Brits don't play faster than Americans. That's all I can remember. I plan to loan my copy to the golf course I frequent most often, and I asked GoodReads to add it to their library.
