Fat orange golfers driving their carts on the green?

I'm cool with that entire list except for playing it as it lies.. I will do so only in tournaments or match play. If I'm out at an executive course for a quick round, I'm not hitting it out of a divot or some salad bowl in the rough.

I would also like to add:
1) drink servers who only come by once a round. 6 passes per 18 holes is a good amount.

What is a half-set?

18. Empty water coolers
What am I supposed to drink?


How about you bring your own water, you lazy fark?

20. People who think half sets are cool

"
I don't like the way other people want to live their own lives."  Fark off.

28. People who use a poker chip to mark their ball

If it's not in your line, STFU.  I'll mark my ball with a goddamn Frisbee if I want to.

Never thought I'd miss golf.  The actual sport, not just the gambling and drinking.

Not carrying a full set of clubs.

Half a set of golf clubs. Generally: Driver, 3 wood, hybrid 5, 5, 7, 9, PW, irons and a putter.

Phone / power lines across the fairway so my ball hits it.
Mysterious ball sucking technology that makes it disappear, even when you hit straight down the fairway.
The other guy chips onto the green, and our balls begin a game of marbles.
A par three designed by MC Escher uses the rotation of the earth causing everyone to slice the shot into the woods.
Water hazards that taunt you by standing up your 9 iron for everyone to see (after you threw it in there)

#4 is my #1. If you are a larger group and a smaller group is right up on you, let them pass. Unless the whole course is backed up, that's a bit different.

As someone who has walked courses in Texas and Florida in August, I don't have a problem with it at all.

That list is special.

Complaining about other players improving their lie? Why do you care unless you are playing a match?

Complaining about an empty water cooler? Bring your own water. I'm guessing this guy plays with a cart so carrying some extra water shouldn't be an issue at all. Even if no cart, a bottle of water just isn't that heavy.

Empty ball cleaners? See that bottle of water your brought? Use that and the towel on your bag.

Half Sets?? Makes no sense to complain what clubs the other person brings or doesn't bring. If they aren't optimizing their score why do you care? Maybe they lightened their load so they would have water.

The fark?  I'd put down "requiring golf carts" at the top of the list.  I suspect that the real reason half-sets are here is that they used to reduce the cost to play golf, but I suspect they are just lighter now.
/hasn't golfed for nearly 20 years. but golf is all but a family religion
//I don't *think* my grandfather ever shot his age using only 3 clubs
///but he shot his age a number of times (especially if you allow combining playing front and back 9 holes on consecutive days, kinda required for a man in his 80s with terminal cancer) and typically won the "3 club challenge" tournament with his typical score

21.

I'm a lefty and I've never encountered that.
 
2020-09-24 2:55:00 PM  
The whole "other people on the course too" thing is a big turnoff for me when I've played.  There is always that one group that is taking forever and think the world revolves around them, and more frequently, that expert group that play too fast and even if you let them go ahead, they give you crap for playing too slow.  I play maybe one time every three years, fark you to every one of those people.

There's a 9-hole course outside my grandfather's assisted living type place that lets everyone there and a guest play for free in October once they close for the season.  Best golfing around.

occassionally I would play a round with only a five-iron and a putter.

really sharpens the skills.
 
2020-09-24 8:30:34 PM  
Meh.  Though there was one guy who would occasionally play in our group that used his laser range finder every shot.....to include within a yard or two of the green.
Or the other guy who complained because I dropped my towel on the green next to my ball but it was in his line...15 feet on the other side of the hole
 
2020-09-24 10:03:19 PM  
I don't really have a lot of complaints about other people on the course, either in my group or other golfers.  It doesn't even bother me when they say "Haha Relax you farking suck" when I hit it into the rough or miss a 5' putt because they know I'm going to say the same thing when it happens to them and I do.  You have to have thick skin to play with our group because the shiat flys but it's all in good fun and nobody gets pissed off over it.
