Just for fun and not meant to degrade anyone. Just finish the sentence above.

Here's mine:

"you are joined up with a threesome who, at 7:05 in the morning, are already chugging beers and are worried that the 24 pack they bought won't be enough."

You have a 9am tee time, and the course has tee time spacing so close together that they are already 30 minutes behind when you get to the first hole.

When the 9:21 tee time is still on the practice putting green, it's 9:34 and the starter is doing nothing to get their arse in gear.

When you get to the tee box, the group your paired with is serious, and you know you are an amateur.

I have to wonder about the IQ level of the director of golf or whoever has set those times to allow this.  It has ZERO benefit to the course, and just p1sses people off.  I purposely avoid two courses in my area because of this.

...when you're warming up in the practice range before you're tee time and you're chunking, duffing, topping the ball left and right and can't get your swing together.

I guess that's why they call it practice, eh?

I walked off a course at the turn because my group was sharing clubs and got mad when I played ready golf and putted out of turn.  They insisted in the furthest out first and not putting out.  It got really old and the 9 took almost 3 hours.  The pro gave me a rain check for 9 but I haven't been back.

I love iron covers, irons can take a beating in the back of the truck when your going 90 down the Florida sun coast and you see the trooper and brake a little to aggressively.

...you're on a 16 man golf trip, the shuttle ready to pull out at 8:00am and for an 8:30 tee time (course is 10 minutes away) and one guy, we'll call him Tim, who was up all night drinking and went for a 13-Mile run in the morning is just jogging down the driveway.  Tim disappears into the house, comes out 15 minutes later and still has shaving cream on his face having just showered and shaved while 15 of us sat on the shuttle.

TRUE STORY!

The thing is though, do you ever see the course not packed? People must really love the course enough to still play ut

There is a course in metro detroit that does 6min intervals and puts zero dollars into the operation; they operate out of a cart barn. All their profit goes towards the course. It is always in perfect condition. People always complain about the pace yet wgen ever i play it, its always packed.
