If I go out on a Saturday/Sunday/Holiday when the weather is going to be really nice I fully expect for the round to take longer as there is going to be more golfers and more golfers who aren't as good--they will always take longer. If I can get a round in in regulation on such a day I consider it a bonus. If it takes a little longer and everyone is keeping up with the group in front of them I'm okay with as I anticipate that.

However, what I cannot stand--and what happens to me at least a few rounds a year--is playing behind a group that is at least a hole (and increasing) behind the group in front of them and refuses to let me play through. If you are working on a 5 hour round as a foursome, why in the world would you not let a single or a twosome play through? Wait on a tee box and less than 5 minutes and they will be gone. I simply cannot understand why some groups insist on not letting such a group play through.

I donít know why people have the expectation that they need the slow groups permission to pass them?🤷🏼‍♂️ If there is two open holes..skip them..think nothing of it

I'm not talking about passing a slow group. I'm talking about the slow group letting a much faster group or single play through. If I'm practicing or just messing around I have no problem simply passing a slow group. But if I'm taking my round seriously or its not possible to come back and play the holes later I'm not going to pass them and skip a hole (or holes). Its on the slower group to let a faster one play through.
