Music on the Course

Recommended Posts

Personally, I cannot stand to hear groups playing (or blaring) music from across the fairway. I've also teamed up with a few people from time to time to move play along a little quicker and they turn music on in the middle of a round. Drives me absolutely nuts.

 

I feel like golfing, at least for me, is a chance to break away from my normal routine and just have a bit of quite time. Unless I hit a crazy good shot, then its not so quite anymore. 

 

Just wonder how everyone felt about it? Think its a golf course sin? Or an acceptable practice? Would love to hear everyone's opinion!

As would PlaidJacket!

 

As for me -- doesn't bother me one bit. I don't listen to music while playing, but don't care if someone else in my group does.

Honestly depends on the type of music being played. I know this is going to sound funny coming from a redneck but I can not stand modern country or some of this techno mess. None of my regular group does it anyhow. I may play some with the buds in if on the range but seldom

I'm not going to bore anyone with my rehash about playing music on the course. However, for the most part I agree with iLikeGolf. If you're interested do a few searches in the forums and you'll find my thoughts.

I can't stand it and I'm a huge music lover. When I'm out golfing I want to hear mowers and birds, not some jackasses stereo.

 

It doesn't surprise me that people can't concentrate on just golf and need to be stimulated every second, it's the way it is these days. People can't even stand and observe things around them anymore without burying their faces in their cellphones.

I listen to music in my headphones when I play by myself but as far as loud music from speakers it's annoying. In a scramble it's ok but not when I am playing a round that matters

Couldn't agree with you more.

 

I have music playing about 85% of my day, either in my headphones or in the car, but something about hearing being played from cart drives me insane.

I don't mind quiet music a whole lot, but it should never be played at a level loud enough to affect other golfers.  For those who insist that its their right ro play their music at whatever volume they want, I'd refer them to the USGA Rules.  Although the Etiquette section doesn't really impose requirements, it does say:

 

Players should ensure that any electronic device taken onto the course does not distract other players.

Seems simple to me

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

The rules themselves disallow music. I've gotten folks disqualified for it before. Rule 14-3 and its clarified in decision 17.

 

 

I can't stand it. Those in the music camp insist you can't hear it outside their cart. I've heard music on the course plenty enough to tell me they're wrong. I go to the golf course for the sounds of nature and that of a well struck golf shot. Not to hear your crappy music through a micro sized speaker in your cup holder. If you have to have it and break the rules, fine, use headphones. I don't want to hear it

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

If you want to hear music while you play wear ear buds or headphones as to keep the noise between your ears.

 

Over the years there as been a increase in noise period. People don't talk they yell. I was taught never to speak loud enough to be heard by anyone outside my group. That means no yelling across the fairway, on the greens, etc. These days people show no regard to anyone outside of their group.

 

So what? So let's dance..

I play music when I'm out alone as in the may be 4 people on the course. And I don't care if people in the group play it, keep it low though.

 

I find the people that yell after a drive, putt, par, chip in, or bad shot, far Far FAR more annoying.

 

A vast majority of people golfing at muni's here don't really care about the rules much any way.

I used this today and LOVED it! I slid it into the pocket next to my water bottle on my new Callaway HL-5. Great little speaker, and it's even waterproof! Called the Mini H2O

I listen to music but only on the driving range and with earbuds. Doesn't disturb others and helps my mood while practicing. However I never play music on the corse.

This one came outta the archives!

 

I'm not a fan for myself, but it doesn't usually bother me. We encounter a lot of guys that have music playing, and it's usually not loud.

 

I agree with others that the yelling and other loud moronic things is far worse.

I'm not a fan of music on the course. Last weekend there was a group on the 18th green and their music was blaring. I was over on the 9th green and could hear every note. Then just yesterday as I was attempting to make a crucial final putt on 18 there were a bunch of goons (liquored up I'm guessing) on the 10th tee box yelling all over the place and yucking it up. Which is worse? Probably the goons.... or as I like to call them... the Fools.
