    Re: Solo player behind you. What do you do?

    Thanks folks. Glad I seem to be in the majority of those who thinks this is a daft thread.

    Got up the notion of a round today after chucking the clubs in the cupboard for the past few weeks only to be stopped after one hole after 3 members went for option d.

    I find if ur waiting on the tee and you ask to play through people who refuse are too much of a wuss to actually say no to your face so just cave .. only ignore you if u let them

    Re: Solo player behind you. What do you do?

    Got stuck behind a 4-ball a few weeks ago as a solo player. Tee'd off about an 1.5 hours after them and caught them up after 5 holes. On the 6th tee they were just going back to their carts to put their clubs away when I walked up to the tee box. They took one look at me got in their carts and then proceeded to rush every shot after that. They quite clearly had no intention of letting me play through and would prefer to rush their shots to try and keep ahead. An hour later I walked off after 9, yes 1 hour to play 4 holes for a 4-ball. So basically tehy were easily looking at playing at a 5+ hour round.

    I spoke to the pro about it and he said that they always get complaints about them not letting people through and at times have to send someone out onto the course to speak with them. Apparently one of the ladies is married to some bigwig lawyer and lives in the biggest house on the course so she thinks she owns the place and can do what ever she wants.

    Re: Solo player behind you. What do you do?

    Normally B then A, but depends on whether or not the solo person is one of the club's a-holes... if he is, then option A only. If he declines then tough chookies, he had his chance and he can wait.

    Re: Solo player behind you. What do you do?

    I'd invite to play through and maybe join us depending on the circumstances.
    However, if I was the single player I would make sure I didn't quite catch up with the 3 ball ahead. Maybe it's just me but I don't feel right about standing by the tee as the group ahead are playing if they are not playing slow. On the odd occasion I play solo and it's happened I usually find not being too aggressive usually works and they call you through at the first opportunity.

    Re: Solo player behind you. What do you do?

    Depends on their speed really, I very often play on my own, I'm also quite a quick player and catch groups up fast, I never ask to go through, if I'm invited to play through then I'll either accept or decline depending on my intentions, no point in me going through on the 9th or 10th if I'm only playing the front 11 and if I'm playing 18 and I'm on the 14th or 15th then I'm chilling out at that point so will be quite happy to mosey along behind for the last few holes...

    Re: Solo player behind you. What do you do?

    Ask them if they want to join or go through.

    I often play on my own when I want to practice, if there is nobody behind me I often decline either as the extra time is spent practicing rather than waiting.

    Sometimes if asked to go through I will do as much as possible to get out of their way as quickly as possible eg not bother with putting.
