I think Billyboots nailed it for me too - I’m not that precious about pace of play as long as it is consistent, keep it steady *whatever* the pace is with no damn stop/starting, standing on tees and second shots - keep it moving.
It’s a balance between people flying around unrealistically quick and people faffing on as if they’re pro’s or just dithering with no awareness or consideration for pace of play. If we get speedy gonzalez, road runner and pals behind we try to let them through asap.. It can be torturous when you as a group are keeping up with the pace of play and on for a 3:30/40 (medal/competition round) but the group behind are firing shots right up behind you and standing staring, arms folded as if it’s our fault we are stopping them getting to the bar… every club has them! I think some folk would enjoy their day better if they just skipped golf and sat in the bar… rushing around a golf course complaining that anything over 2.5 hours is too slow but then spending 3.5 hours sat in the bar ? hmmmmm I’m there, like the majority are to enjoy a game of golf.
