Pace of Play Survey in Everything Else! Posted March 10, 2019 I see slow play and the amount of time it takes are two different factors. Slow play is frustrating but only when etiquette and other procedures aren't followed. Time (fast or slow) is a bigger factor in people not playing. Many times I don't have 3 hours to allow for golf either. People are busy. To summarize: time and busy lives keep me from playing more than slow play does. However, I would like to see more intentionality into being time efficient over total time per round.
