Slow play rarely bothers me, it’s the aholes behind hitting into us when there’s no place to go that pisses me off.
There wasn’t a poll option for “I just try to relax and accept whatever happens,” so I didn’t vote.So what's your preferred pace out there, and how does being faster or slower than that affect your mood, play, and how you view the day/round as a whole after it's over?
Totally agreed and been trying to do the same thing recently. I don't think there's a public course around here (SoCal) where you can get a round completed in <5 hours after 9am. It was so bad this past summer that I clocked in 3hr 45min for 9 holes! There were 1-2 groups waiting on every tee box, and would have been a 7+ hour round. First time in my life I've ever called it quits due to pace of play.The pace of play has gotten so bad that I have started just walking in the late afternoon after the last tee time has went off at 3:45pm.
If I walk 10-12 holes I play more golf(playing multiple balls) that I play in 18 holes on a cart.
In a cart, anything less than 4 hours seems to be a lucky break
This pretty much sums me up. I absolutely love if we can play in the bottom half of that range, but I'm happy in the top half too.I feel comfortable in the 3-4 hour range. Any quicker I lose my game and any slower its more annoying than anything.
