    Drinking on Public Course

    I am hosting a long lost friend visiting us from the States. He is a avg golfer. I asked him how serious he was about his golf, to which the response was.. 'I am relaxed, just social golf. We can wander around the course drinking beers and hitting a few balls'. Now having played stateside, I know it is fairly common for the drinks cart to come around and be bit stiff by the time you reach the 16th hole. So he was very surprised that you cannot drink here.

    Question>
    1) Considering most of our courses are public land, can you bring your own and drink on the course (moderate not pissing)
    2) Would you call the Marshal if you see the group in front of you sipping from brown paper bags?

    Judging by the number of beer bottles you see in the bins (and elsewhere) on some courses I think it's quite common here...

    Marshalls on a course? Unless you are playing somewhere elite or old fashioned I can't see the issue.

    Maybe you can on muni's and pay and play courses but most members clubs that I know of would take a dim view of drinking on the course.

    Afraid I don't understand the reference to public land. After all many towns and cities now ban drinking in public in large parts of their centres.

    Really? I play a members course, and we have a drinks buggy, and, shock, horror, call the press, it sells beer.

    I often take a beer out onto the course, esp in the late summer evenings. Why not?

    Jeez, we are not professionals. Our livelihoods dont depend on our scores.

    Golf is meant to be fun.

    No harm in having a few sherbets on the course, wire in. Hardest thing is keeping them cold or just drink them quickly 😁

    Sorry to hear that you have to have a drink for it to be fun!

    Can’t see any prob if you want a drink.
    My bags heavy enough without a load of beer bottles/cans in it.
    Just be careful if you drive home.

    Drink, don't drink? Noodles, don't noodles? Some are too concerned about what was and what will be
