    I'm of the theory that you go to a golf course with the people you want to play with and they should keep it that way. It's like saying you go to the gym to shoot hoops by yourself and the gym tells you that you have to play five-on-five and run up and down. If you are out there by yourself, or with one other person for that matter, you should be allowed to do that...but just know that if you get stuck behind a slower group you have no god given right to play through them. I have no problem scheduling an extra hour or so in with golf of waiting on tee-boxes. I'd rather spend time waiting on tee-boxes with my friends than playing quickly with strangers.

    She had a magazine...and she stayed in the cart and threw me a ball whenever I wanted to hit another, it was kind of nice... caddie of sorts. Now if she decided to play, that's a whole other story.

    Most of my rounds are with my wife. It might be shocking but some men actually enjoy spending time with their wife.

    right but you are now taking up a full tee time just to yourself when it can be used to accommodate 3 other players, and on top of that now open up a tee time for another 4 some to play... so buy playing by yourself you are making it harder for others to play also... thats why they do that

    If its going to take you 5 hours to walk the course, take a damn cart. Nothing pisses me off more than having a 5 hour round because someone likes to walk slow around the course.

    "Hot enuff fur ya?"

    Can this line be banned from all golf courses?

    Stick with girlfriends my young man, until you can find one you'd want to spend time with on the course. Then, and only then, you've found marriage material. It doesn't mean you have to golf with her…but you shouldn't dread it.

    #4 I will stop smoking on the golf course, when you stop tearing it up with your golf cart.
    #5 If my waiving at a gnat while standing directly behind you bothers you, you are focused on the wrong thing my friend.
    #6 Stay off my ball. I don't need your help telling it to 'go', 'get up', 'sit', 'get down' or 'suck back'!
    #7 Double check that Titleist before you hit it. It's the number one ball in golf, so it might not be yours. Know what number you are playing, or invest in a sharpie.
    #8 Golf is not a hunting and gathering sport. Buy your own golf ball, play your own golf ball. If you see a ball that doesn't belong to you, leave it where it's at.
    #9 If I'm playing against you for money, don't ever say, "Wow, I never play this well"
    #10 If I'm playing with you, against someone else for money, don't ever say "Wow, I never play this bad"

    just one time....Convince your buddies that you each get one 'throw' during the round, but you have to play it as it lies. Then, next time one of them tees their ball up, grab it, and throw it 50 yards into the nearby pond.

    If number 6 really does bother you then maybe you need to refer to your own rule #5.

    It may shock you, but some people actually like to see good golf shots hit and so they may get a bit excited during a round and speak out. What a rough round it must be for you if someone actually wishes your golf shot well......

    My experience is that it's usually not walking vs riding that causes a course to back up. It's usually more the result of hackers who spray balls all over the course and then take forever looking for their "good" ball. The other main cause of slow play are groups that go into slow motion when they get to the greens.

    Yep, one of my favorite things to do on the golf course is talk to my ball while its in the air.

    2. Don't tell me how last week you shot a 78 but somehow today you'll do good to break 100

    3. Fix your damn ball marks on the green and at least one other one

    4. Don't give me golf tips when I didn't ask for any

    5. Don't tell me how you are going to buy the new "insert brand name here" driver because you can't hit your current one. Invest in some lessons and make the round more enjoyable for both of us next time.

    Best rule ever! I know I'm not a great golfer and I probably do things not always by the book. That doesn't mean I want to be constantly critiqued by some one who is beating me by two stokes. Just let me play. It's even worse when a stranger you're matched up with does it.

    I can see why a course would want to fill as many tee times with 4 people in order to make money... but if that's the case I'll pass on a busy day. It's no fun playing with strangers...
