I got one, when your group is playing ready golf and some single decides to hit into your group because "I didn't know anyone was on the course in front of me". This lead to one of the guys in the group air mailing the guys ball into the lake. That was not me. I would have just ran over his ball with the cart.

Whether it be with mannerisms or course layout or something else that just drives you nuts... What is it?

I'll start, mine is when people aren't ready to hit when it's their turn. I used to golf with one of my father-in-law's friends and every time it was his turn to hit, he would still be in the cart carrying on conversation, finishing a smoke, and just oblivious to everything else going on. Needless to say, I don't golf with him anymore.

Mine is when I have to play with guys named Tyler 😂

While I agree this is bad, watching that same foursome waiting for the green to clear that’s 300 yards away...

# 1 SLOW PLAY. 

Sunday, I pulled into the parking lot, and I could see the first tee was empty. I got out my MotoCaddy, put my bag on, put my golf shoes on. Still, nobody on the first tee. I checked in at the Pro shop. He said I was good to go. There was a twosome riding that went off a little while ago and they should be on #4 by now. I get to the tee box in which the elevation is lower than the fairway. I walked up to where I could see if the fairway was clear. Not the case the twosome was not even on the green yet and it was only a 368-yard straight hole. At that rate it was going to be a 7-hour round. I waited for them to clear the green and tee off on the par three 150-yard 2nd hole before I hit my tee shot on hole 1. I finished the hole, and they were still on the green on 2. I headed over to Hole 4 to get in front of them. Never saw them the rest of the day. Heck I was probably home before they made it to the back 9. 🤣

#2. Courses need to put sand in the bunkers not a 1/4" dusting of sand and small pebbles. If you get in one rake it when you're done. 

#3. Fix your ball marks on the green.     

Tom I will concur with your #2 about bunker sand! I played several courses around here last year and I can honestly say I had 1 or 2 bunkers with actual sand in them. The rest were exactly as you described or worse they were full of water.

I should have mentioned he had an iron in his hand waiting for the green to clear 300 yards away.

Slow play is annoying but I also expect it these days which is sad. My #1 pet peeve is ball marks on the green. It’s just disrespectful to everyone else to not even try to repair them. I was taught when I first began playing to fix yours and at least one more. #2 is definitely bunkers with low sand or poorly maintained sand and are now hard and firm. I imagine they are expensive to maintain but if you are going to have them, then keep them in good condition.

Yep, slow play! All of it. I have a buddy who sometimes takes his sweet time getting back in the cart after playing a hole or even a shot sometimes. Love the guy, but c'mon man.

I could play golf every day and learn something new each time.
