At what limit should slow play = partial refund?

You will generally see more better players on average and players who knows about certain etiquettes on private courses. Not logical to compare the two.
Right, my point was simply that for me, it has gotten so bad on public courses that I simply stopped playing all of them. I'm clearly aware that what you state is the case since that is basically my reason for joining.

If you are unhappy with that courses pace of play, don't play there.
6 hours is normal in Los Angeles on a weekend starting after 8am. Hell, I'll play a 5 hour round during the week starting at 6am.
You share the course with 120 strangers, get over slow play or don't play those courses.
You have no right to ask or receive a refund. Sure, there are times I wish it was possible, but seriously, get real.
I think the location above: "Los Angeles" has a lot to do with your response. Probably a lot of people out that way with "entitlement issues" and "the world spins for me" kind of crap.
Let me tell you buddy, if you think it's ok for 18 holes in a cart to take 6 hours, condoning that kind of crap is being part of the problem.
These people come out on the course and think, "I've paid my $$ to play, now this course is mine to do as I wish." I don't know what planet people like that live on who think it is their right to take 1/4 of an entire 24 hour day to ride 18 holes.
This wasn't a little po-dunk muni course. Around here $55 for 18 is in the upper 1/3 of pricing for courses.
Either way, just because I am sharing the course with 120 others, doesn't mean that those 119 have the right to take 6 hours to play 18.
I agree with the above statement that my voice now is to not return, which I won't.
I've played golf around here and in the Sandhills for 20 years, and NEVER in 20 years and probably 500 rounds of golf has it taken me 6 hours to play 18.
I think by that assertion, it would be fair to say 6 hours is unnacceptable on any level.
$55 is not high end. That's average/low end anywhere in the US. At that price, I would never expect a fast round in that range. That's almost muni course prices.
