    Re: Letting people through while in a comp?

    We dont generally have tee times and most comps/medals are play with who you want when you want so a quicker 2 ball would normally be called through whetherplaying the comp or not,since there are no tee restrictions.
    If however it's a comp or match (ie inter club) that has had the tee reserved for a window then in all likelyhood they wouldnt be called through.
    Forever trying.

    Re: Letting people through while in a comp?

    reading some of the comments on this thread are comical. people really think they own the course. if you're holding up another group regardless of whether you in a comp or not then let them through.

    its just typical golfers thinking they are the epicentre of the world. get over yourself and apply some manners

    Maybe they were 2 holes behind so they could let rip with the swearing and not have to worry about being dragged up in front of the committee!

    Re: Letting people through while in a comp?

    Our tees are always closed during a competition but any slot not taken during the comp can be used by people playing social golf. All the comps are in three balls so if the social group are in threes then everything follows pace of pay etiquette as detailed in the rules of golf but people going out at two balls in the middle of the comp or even at the end are told they can't expect to go through all playing the Comp. All the members agree that it's the best way to go about things

    Seems a poor set up mate
    Every club I've been a member at locally, could enter the comp in any tee time slot that you wanted
    Never heard of fixed tee slots for comps
    A bit antiquated
    Considering modern working lives, shifts, time restraints, etc......

    Your club just seems to keep giving 😉

    That post wasn't aimed at you Beezerk, it was in reply to a post made by C&R.

    This is the way it should be done IMO
