Seen a couple of things happen.
1. Saturday shootout had a captain walk out after being paired with a player whom he did not like.
2. Had a long time group kick out a individual. They had enough of his mouth. All three confronted him and gave him the news.
3. Seen a club not allow a former member back in because of the way he acted during play.
4. Had a group on the first tee tell a guy whom asked about playing with them. "We have our three".

My brother and I have played with every kind of player you can imagine. My brothers has a saying. " He's a as$h*#@, but he's ok."

Ah c'mon man that's not fair, I apologized and said I'd watch my yapping and quit throwing fits.
And you told me if I agreed to never try and join your group again you wouldn't start a topic on WRX; yet here it is.

I have played with a large number of different people over the last 40+ years. I probably only need two hands to count the number of times I came away thinking I would never want to play with that person again.

I can play with anyone on an occasional basis.  I will no longer play with jerks on a regular basis.  

If I have to watch you to be sure you don’t cheat, you’re gone, if you’re a grumpy old funsuck, you’re gone.  If you’re don’t mark your ball two feet from the hole and slam clubs during other people’s backswing guy, you’re gone.  

We tossed a guy this summer for doing all these things.  Playing with him became like going to a job you hate.  When you wake up dreading playing because of the people you’re playing with, it’s reasonable to stand up and say so.

It’s supposed to be fun; not four hours of biting your tongue.

One guy I absolutely will never play with again. He's a member at a local course and there is a list of other singles that all refuse to be paired with him.

He will not shut up. Ever. He's the kind of guy that will repeat a question 10 times till you respond. And everything he says apparently is pretty funny because it's going to be followed with a little aha-ha laugh. Not a good golfer at all but since he's a member he wants to offer advice on nearly every shot. I've played with him several times and decided never again.

There's only one player that I genuinely would never play with, met him in college and had the rotten luck of playing with him several times in tournaments. To deal with it, I just walk on my side of the fairway either far ahead or far behind the other player and keep to myself.

Usually play by myself after work, but have been getting sent out with this guy recently and he is a full head to toe walking advertisement for Nike. Every bit of clothing, every item in and and including the bag. Not a bad player, but talks like he's a +4. Usually after work I like to spend my time on the course unwinding from the day, this guy just makes it more of an annoyance than anything to play. I don't have it in me to tell him I like the silence of the course sometimes.

Last year my buddy and I got another member put into our twosome. We had never met nor played with him before, so at first we were stoked to meet a new member. On the first tee he says "I'm gonna play the tips", and my first thought was "nice, he must be a good stick".

First tee shot, slices OOB. Takes a mulligan, pulls it dead left into the hazard. I chalk it up to just a rough start, it'll hopefully get better.

It doesn't. And then we were subjected to listening to a litany of excuses after every shot, and how he really is a 5 handicap and he's not playing as good as he normally does. On top of it all, he's extremely slow. Takes him at least 30 seconds to execute a shot between the 5 practice swings to the 5 waggles, to the just standing over the ball for another 5-10 seconds before he pulls the trigger. He would even meticulously analyze every putt from both sides, didn't matter if it was 8 or 80 feet.

My playing partner said to me afterwards "we are not playing with him ever again", to which I agreed.

And then a few weeks later he gets paired in my group for the first round of the club championship. I played in the championship flight that year. Dude shot a 98, and played slower than molasses. On day two he was in a different group that was 3-4 groups ahead of mine. His threesome was backing up the entire course.

Life's too short. Don't play with someone you don't like or will dampen the mood.  
Competition is different. If you don't like them, that should be fuel to want to destroy them.
As far as a single joining, if you know then and don't like them, sure, say no. If you don't know them then it's an @$$hole move.

In all my years, there is only one guy I will never play with again.  Unluckily, he plays at my home course.  Luckily, we have an online tee sheet; so I know to avoid his tee time or anything after, like the plague.  He's not a bad guy, but he's the living embodiment of pretty much every negative golf stereotype (aside from the temper related ones).   To keep it short, he's: 1. Completely oblivious  2. "bull in a china shop" 3. "Murphy's Law" was written about him 4. Painfully slow.

I guess I have been fortunate. By the standards here I haven't been playing golf all that long (13 years), I do play a lot of golf and it is rare indeed that I encounter the kinds of people you describe.

I can only think of one person I didnít like playing with. He just never shut up. The rest of the time, I always seem to be fortunate with whom I end up with. Iíve made a lot of great friends with people I met playing golf. Itís just one of many things golf has given me. Even the dbags turn out to be amusing (in an unflattering manner, to be sure).

Guy with a bit of a reputation got joined in with us on a Sunday competition. Thought we would just get on with it.

Turned out to be a talker after every shot, always about himself - never a well done to a good shot. OK not a deal breaker.

Putting out on the 16th he takes a telephone call and tells us he had to take it because it was about this afternoons tennis match.

Get to the 18th, par 3 over water. We tee off and the next group turn up and sit on the bench as we walk off. In passing the pond he pulls out his phone and starts taking pictures of a tench feeding in shallow water. He'd taken a few pictures during the round of the scenery but with players sat on the tee waiting for us to finish it was the last straw.

Went into the managers office and said never pair him with us again or we won't play. Turns out he had previous and the manager said he would have an 'informal word'.

Oops, maw ba gwing blond . . .

But not blind enough to not wonder about why general descriptions of people you don't like relates to the golf swing. ;-)

(And I once or twice a summer I confess to having an unavoidable scheduling conflict when it's time to play a team or two in league).

I'm not normally bothered by other people's actions, and I can put up with anything for 4 hours, but one guy comes to mind when reading everyone else's experiences.  I've played with this guy 3 times, the first time on the first tee he introduced himself as a "pro" from Wisconsin who was in Florida for the winter.  He proceeded to explain to me all about the lessons he provides to the members at his club, in detail, and all about how good he is.  This all took place on the first hole.  I'm okay with chit chat and getting to know people, but this guy was on another level.  We played that day, I believe he shot around an 85 to my 77, and his stories about being a "pro" stopped.  I ran into him again a month later at the same course and he joined me again, this time not one mention of being a pro, the entire round consisted of stories of drinking and hook ups with women, I think he must have been a "pro" at that as well by the things he confided in me.  I believe this round he shot around 90-95.  The final time I got stuck with him I basically ignored him for 3 holes, he then quit and left the course abruptly, haven't seen him since.  I honestly wouldn't mind getting paired up with him again, as I said I'm easy going, even though I knew he was full of it the stories were fairly entertaining at least.

The shot-by-shot guy(s) at every club.  Tell me about a few really strange or great shots, but I don't need to hear full recap of the round.

Once I figure out who they are, I avoid them at all costs.

I posted a topic awhile back dedicated to the group I and my friend played with that were absolutely the worst people I've ever been paired up to. They checked off about every box:
  • got drunk in less than an hour and our tee time was around 8am
  • talked during shots, yelled across fairways at each other
  • drove their cart in front of you as you were swinging. Like, 30 yards in front of me and I'm hitting a 6 iron. Twice.
  • had a loud, profane, 15 minute-long phone conversation that stretched almost 2 holes (including tee boxes and greens)
  • stopped the cart girl in the fairway and flirted with her for extended lengths of time, oblivious to the back up on the tee they created.
  • finally got ditched by me and my friend on hole 13, and the group behind them even played through too (as they talked to the cart girl again)
100% insanity.

One dude I got paired up at a military course which is now public...

1. All he talked about was on an all-navy team and plays to a +1 and was +6 through 9 holes and on the 14th tee box says he's shooting par. Wth? Not to mention he had obvious spin issues with his wayward, newly acquired driver. He's maybe 3 clubs longer than me off the deck but much less with his driver. His driver flight would rise and then die out of the sky.

2. Participates in gamesmanship. (Nice try pal)

Nail in the coffin....

3. He uses a "F bogeys" putter headcover.

He ends the round with "maybe we'll play again some time". Spoiler alert: never gonna happen.

Sometimes you canít help getting paired with a looser.
I can usually tell by the 2nd hole that this person and I are not on the same page.
So I will be politely cordial for the rest of the round while deliberately avoiding speaking or interacting with this looser.
Iíve played with big mouths, drunks, psychopaths, egomaniacs. All sorts. These idiots will not upset me and ruin my game!

I got paired with the music guy at a tournament this weekend.  He played metal and, of course, never asked anybody if it was okay.  You could easily hear it from 200 yards away.  i asked that he turn it down and he did, but he didn't turn it off.  On Sunday, we played at the country club and he played his music again.  All of the members looked at him like he was an alien and it didn't dawn on him to turn it off.  Nice enough guy, just doesn't get common courtesy.

Only one for me. We played together for years and I learned to sort of laugh at some of the crap he pulled.

We would play skins and magically his ball would reappear in an area we had all already searched previously.
He would scream obscenities after any bad shot.
He would break clubs and throw them.

The list could go on.

Finally, about 5 years ago or so, after playing with him for almost 20 years my other pards and I got together and mutually agreed - life's too short and we didn't want to deal with that stuff.

To this day we have annual reunions - only the three of us. We never managed to find a regular fourth. But we have never felt like we were missing out on anything.

There's a couple of guys in one of the leagues I play in that are a bit odd but nothing that can't be tolerated. Friendly enough to make up for quirks.

On the opposite side of things I have met SO many people over the years that I really love getting together with and sharing some laughs on the links. Two of them were members here that I met. (Danny - looking forward to Saturday buddy - don't be late!)
So all-in-all it's been a good ride. One out of literally hundreds is pretty darned good I guess. : )

Seems like people who do one of these things will do more than one or even all of them, it's just what they become...and I'm not 'crazy about playing with them' as you say...

Lose track of their shot count and ask you how many strokes they have taken on a hole... alot
Lose a ball like in the woods or rough, and make less effort looking for it than everyone else...
Constantly 'fluff' their ball to get a better lie, even near the green, like for a wedge shot...
Never fix divots or ball marks...
Walk, or talk, while you're putting...
Accidentally hit their approach shot out of order, then say something like "oops, I didn't realize you were away"... sure they did...
Keep asking you how far out they are, cause you have a GPS or rangefinder, and they are too cheap to get one....
Drive their cart down ahead of everyone... then stay there while everyone else is trying to hit their next shot...
Stop in after the first nine while everyone else is buying a quick hot dog, and they hold things up to apparently buy some real estate or get a colonoscopy or something...

Not crazy about playing with these types...

I can think of no more than 4 or 5 players out of our 570 odd members who I avoid.
Number One. He smells. Really badly and has no idea where the bar is.
Number Two. Multiple club champ who cannot play a casual or bounce game. He has to win at all costs and uses an obscene amount of gamesmanship. Also a stranger to buying anyone a drink.
Number Three. Mr Thom E Two S$%*ts. The boaster. Want to know where he went on holiday? How much he paid for his shirt? How much money he is making? Err no not really. And drink drives home.
Number Four. The club cheat. Came to our club with a reputation of improving lies and dropping balls but splashes the cash for charity so all is good. Err no. Still a cheat.
Number Five. Mr Negative. Has perfect recall on every bad shot he has ever hit. And will share it with you...."Hey I put balls in that pond last week". Thanks.

I posted a topic awhile back dedicated to the group I and my friend played with that were absolutely the worst people I've ever been paired up to. They checked off about every box:
  • got drunk in less than an hour and our tee time was around 8am
  • talked during shots, yelled across fairways at each other
  • drove their cart in front of you as you were swinging. Like, 30 yards in front of me and I'm hitting a 6 iron. Twice.
  • had a loud, profane, 15 minute-long phone conversation that stretched almost 2 holes (including tee boxes and greens)
  • stopped the cart girl in the fairway and flirted with her for extended lengths of time, oblivious to the back up on the tee they created.
  • finally got ditched by me and my friend on hole 13, and the group behind them even played through too (as they talked to the cart girl again)
100% insanity.



you shouldnt have left those guys... you shoud have burried them in the woods and saved the next pair the trouble....wow is all i can say!


I too only have 1 i avoid like the plague....  Older guy..supernice... BUT he never, ever , for any reason , shuts up!!!   and bless him.. he cant hear, so he talks to you lip to lip almost..... It once took an hour after a round to get away from him in the parking lot... my feet started aching standing on the pavement in spikes..  thats the last time i played with him.. if  see his car i dont get out of mine until i do a drive by of the range and putting green.... lol   have to plan your escape routes ahead of time..

I used to care very little about picking up people on the tee or during a backup but nowadays, I dread playing with strangers thanks to the two non-gentlemen that felt comfortable enough to share that they liked a particular NW FL/Southern AL course because there were "no n______s." This was probably 14 or 15 years ago now and everytime I get paired up with someone I worry that I'm going to have to find out they're an ugly a** racist. Met some nice people over the years but it only takes one bad apple as they say.
