Music on the Course

Recommended Posts

I'm ok with others playing music as long as the volume is so low that it can only be heard inside the cart. Note: when I'm playing alone - I'll generally play music, however in those instances, no one else is around.

I have a couple of speakers I use....the original Puma Sound Chuck and I got a Bushnell wingman for my birthday last year.

When I play solo a play a mix of classic rock and 80’s/90’s stuff at a volume where it can’t be heard if you are 10 feet away from the cart.

When I play with my buddies I always ask if they mind if I play music.

Respect for others is the answer.  Several people that I play with tend to have music going in their carts, but at a volume that is low enough so as to not bother others.  On the other hand, there are a few obnoxious ones that seem to think they need the volume booming and can be heard 2 fairways over.  Just like the idiot with his subwoofers booming out of his truck and rumbling your car at the stoplight -- NOT COOL!

I don't feel a need to listen to music when I play, but I don't have issues with those that do provided that it is at a volume that doesn't affect other players.

I always listen to music while I golf; keeps me in rhythm and stops me from thinking too much. But always on my Bluetooth headphones, because I’m not that guy...

Have to admit I’m changing my mind on this, in the cart it’s great to chill out but if I can hear it during my swing still not used to it

Our Sunday 4some played at Caledonia (if ever in SC, it’s a must play) and a $200+ per round, we’d like to think we would enjoy the sounds of nature ... and while we did, there was 4-5 instances where we can hear the music at our tee box from the group behind us while they were at the green. It bothered all 4 of us, albeit, it didn’t affect our tee shots. 

If it were a different course with significantly lower green fees, it’s likely 1 of us would’ve been slightly confrontational about it. 😆

I got into the habit last year of having wireless headphones in on rounds where it was just me (I did toss them in once when I was linked up with a less than conversational group) besides that I typically don’t have music on the course when I go out. With the push cart now I might toss one in there and keep it low so just I can hear it. I understand how some folks don’t enjoy to hear my music

For those of you that are listening to music, preferably with wireless headphones 😉 ... what are you listening to? 

I’ll sometimes wear headphones while at the driving range and for me, it’s house/trance music. 😎

Did read a comment about how it helps block out mental chatter for another by listening to music. Never thought of that as a benefit while playing the course.

I never knew how much I would love wireless headphones.  If I go as a single they're always in tow.

Any number of things.  Rush R30, Augustana, Dropkick Murphys, Maren Morris, Beethoven, Taylor Swift or the Killers.

So yeah, any number of things 🙂

It does help me zone. I’m fairly quick on course not much gets in my head but music is an added bonus for me (work to I can blow through a lot of stuff when I zone out with music). Not that I zone out on course but just that groove. 
for me typically depends on my mood but usually rock country or 90s early 2000 rap. Luke combs or lil Wayne 99% of the time does the trick.

I played with 2 guys last week who were using the bushnell speaker and gps. It doesn’t bother me much during leisure rounds. Anything more than that I’d rather be fully focused. The bushnell unit was kinda cool, they thought the golf clap feature was great😂

a playlist of country music works for me. I don’t  think I could have any sort of EDM or rap music going

Similar but different - I'm seeing more driving ranges and practice areas playing music. I actually really like that, it's a nice touch at a destination course with a music that fits the course's theme (mountain course with bluegrass music, beach course with beach-y music). The Golfers Journal interviewed Don Rea recently and he talked about how his local muni course changes the music the play throughout the day as the players change (early mornings- classics for the older crowd; later afternoons- more todays hits for the high school and younger group practicing after school). A little something in the background never bothered me.

Me and my Uncle got paired with a couple of guys that had music playing in their cart. I asked them to turn it down on the first hole. They were fine with that. I said I really like the seclusion and sounds of nature when I play. I’m not sure I understand this trend- one of the greatest things about golf is the tranquility. I almost always walk so that if I have a bad round at least I got out in nature and got some exercise. 
Plus, why would I want to be subjected to someone else’s taste in music? Use headphones you egomaniacs!

I like some music on the course. My buddy has a bluetooth speaker he'll bring along and we'll listen to tunes, usually at a volume that we can't hear from the teebox.

I'd rather be paired up with someone listening to music, even if it was music I hated, than a bunch of cigar smokers or ignorant "joke tellers".

I always play music when I'm playing alone. However, I wouldn't mind it if others were playing as well.

I don't mind it as long as the volume isn't ridiculous.  I personally wouldn't do it for myself... seems like a distraction to trying to focus on a round of golf... I have enough issue making sure my Garmin is charged, let alone dealing with a bluetooth speaker, connecting to a streaming service/channel of choice and making sure my playing partners don't mind the music and my choices.... I could be on #3 by the time I get all that set up.  Haha.
