    Re: How long would you wait on the 10th.

    I think that we have basically stopped our twin tee start as it was causing too much disruption and pain, maybe it is OK during the week but only on checking with the Pro Shop to see if there would be any roll-ups or societies heading up towards the 9th when a group might be looking to start their round on the 10th. But at weekends and other busy times - no 10th tee start
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    Re: How long would you wait on the 10th.

    In previous club the rule was that when starting on the 10th groups alternated.

    If the balls of a group coming up the 9th were all on the green, then they got priority over a group ready to start on the 10th. If the group on the 10th were clear ahead to play then they could, but they had to stand aside as soon as the group playing the 9th were ready to tee off. If the balls of a group on the 9th were not all on the green then a group on the 10th could tee off and they did not have to let the group playing the 9th through.

    And so on alternating.

    This be reason enough for me not to join a club.

    If anyone is on the 9th you should not be allowed to tee off on the 10th


    Having to wait mid round for next people to tee off is madness
    2016: Started Playing->23.0
    2017: 22.7->14.4

    Re: How long would you wait on the 10th.

    If we've started on the 10th and then there's a queue on the 1st, as soon as we are on the 18th green nobody should tee off and they let us through, if there's a queue at the 10th which is rare then those ready to tee off as we walk off the 9th green do so and then we go next as we are in play and its alternated.

    I had a rant on here a few years ago after queueing at the 1st at a previous club, I was watching & waiting for 4 groups to tee off before us and then the captain and his 3 mates turned up and glared at us, we were a two-ball.

    When I was about to tee off on the 2nd in a National matchplay match one of his mates who was a member, literally, said to me I should have let them through as the captain has courtesy of the course. I said firstly we had waited nearly 40 minutes to tee off and didn't care if it was the queen, nobody was teeing off in front of me, and also added what sense was it to let a fourball through in front of a two-ball, we would be right up your backside immediately and be looking to let through, he said, well you wouldn't come through!!!

    My god I'm glad I'm at the club I am now, fate dealt a great hand to me.....

    So a group is walking off the tee of the par 4 9th. A group arrives to start their round on the 10th. They have to wait?

    As long as you schedule 9 tee times off the 1st, then leave a 9 tee time gap, the effect is the same as if you started 9 tee times earlier - you have 'gained' 9 tee times!

    And, on a 'full' course, you only have (those) 9 Tee times available on the 10th.

    Simply allowing groups to start on either the 1st or the 10th requires rules such as those mentioned in the thread - and then only if the course has real gaps. otherwise there's a chance that the course will become 'overfull', a major cause of slow play!

    Re: How long would you wait on the 10th.

    Sitting here in Antigua waiting for my next hurricane to appear (Jose due tommorrow) you get a completely different perspective on the concept of 'having to wait' and time.

    I really don't think I will be able to get stressed about waiting o a golf course again.
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,

    10.8 and moving the right way again...
