why does it bother you ? who cares if they are wearing flip flops.....blaring music sure that can be annoying it is when my neighbors kids blast their rap outside too but oh well.
as long as they are not damaging the course I am playing or slowing matters down, I don't give a rat ass what anybody else does on the course and I don't care what they think about what I do on the course. There was a thread a few years ago up here started by some old , crusty bastard who wanted somebody kicked off the course because he went pee in the bushes on a hole. In our younger days we would play "dick out" and I've seen guys walk up 18 fairway in their underwear after topping a drive.
if the management of the course has an issue and cares let them deal with it.
Golf is dying and needs to change ......its already happening whether we accept it or not. This event, The boisterous Waste Management Open, Top Golf, the new show Shotmakers, music and wifi on courses, phone chargers on all carts now etc....
its called progress and all businesses need to change and adapt to cater to what the target population wants. We see it everyday, you can do everything with an app now, I can order a beer and dinner to my seat at the hockey game and the theater now, hell I don't even have to go to the theater to see a new movie.
boomers have had a big voice based on our numbers but are dying off and leaving the game so there is now a focus on catering to a new target audience and what they want. I agree with Ode, the yahoos are small in number .....for now
