    I dont think within Murphs post he ever said he needed to "have" a drink for it to be fun

    I also think you are wrong in regards the most members clubs would take dim view

    Most members clubs i have played either serve alcohol in the halfway house or on a drink buggy as you go round. In fact a good deal of them even have it on draft.

    That includes some of the biggest most prestigious clubs in the country.

    I dont expect any of them to take a dim view when they server it in the first place.

    What i would expect them to take a dim view too is drunken behaviour on the golf course the likes you would see in a pub or on a street but then thats doesnt really happen on the whole.

    As with anything whether it be a members cliub or a muni pay and play it will always be about respecting where you are and the company you are in

    Provided you do not drive home, of course.

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?
    Well public courses might be...and I am not sure that public courses are the majority of courses (not that I see any difference when it comes to imbibing alcohol during a round)
    to infinity and beyond...

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

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    Exactly what I was going to say. I never seem to see anyone drinking on the course but I see used cans and bottles in every bin on the way round. I don't usually have a drink until the end of the round, but in summer we have had one on the way once or twice.

    Re: Drinking on Public Course

    I do not take a dim view of players drinking from cans on the course.

    I take a very dim view of the players that then throw the empty can in to the bushes. You carried a full can all the way out surely it is not too much trouble to carry an empty one to the next rubbish bin.

    Same applies with soft drinks though, not just beer. The woods are full of cans and drinks bottles. I have never seen anyone do it, but they must do or they would not be there. Most of the guys I play with would go nuts if someone they were playing with did this.

    Re: Drinking on Public Course

    I have a friend who would sometimes take 1 or 2 bottles round with him. He would say it was to 'help with the nerves and to settle him' but I think he just liked a beer in the sun.

    It never bothered me and it didn't affect his conduct on the course
    In the bag:
    McGregor Driver
    A dusty old 7 wood
    Top Flite Tour irons
    Howson putter thats 15+ years old!
    Plastic Tees
    Assorted balls
    Nike golf shoes
    All carried in a Fazer bag.
