Ya, probably allow the waiting flight behind to go first would be the best way to do for slow golfers ba. At least the flight behind wun b so angry with slow playing..
At least considerate. Very Happy

Hm, the people I met at Mandai are not automatic enuff.
So I did request to allow us to go first.
They thought for awhile, say okay.

So, we tee-off.
Walk down the slope..
Approaching to our balls...
Then suddenly they tee-off... duhhh... *shake head*

if I see a little effort, eg. walking faster between shots, I won't be fed up with the guys upfront, even if they decide to read their putts longer, or take more practice swings, or wait for the front to clear 250m. Its fellow golfers who take their sweet time strolling and slowly keeping their clubs, after all their other antics, that irritates.

Maybe the problem lies with the tee off intervals. Paying money, unable to enjoy and absorb the scenary, and to be rushed by flights behind sounds bad.
but then on the other hand, if tee times are in 15mins intervals, the clubs may not earn enough to maintain the facilities in tip-top condition.

I wonder if....doubling the green fees and doubling the tee off intervals helps. less pple able to book a slot, but at least you can enjoy a proper game and it caters to a wider skill spectrum.

just my 2 cents.

In additon to ones mentioned above, here is another top 3 observations of slow play:

1. 2 golfers on one buggy....buggy go 1st ball....2nd golfer sit there ba-long-long...apply sun tan, admire grass, check inner eye lids,..squeeze black heads....(Recommendation: 2nd golfer..drive to your ball to get ready lah)

2. About to swing, but golfer suspect wind coming..so wait...throw more grass...and even some throw small sticks to check the wind strength...then wait somemore....(Recommendation: Play indoor golf..sure no wind)

3. Putt finish liao..ball go in liao...NB, golfer stand there on green to count how score...(Recommendation: Get your ass off the green asap)

some might ask, why I have this list? Answer: Fm experience and the accompnaying cursing showered on me...long long time ago (except for blackhead thing)

Anyone selling a F1 helmet? I may need one.

Lucky for you they did not bring a kite along....

the main point here is having proper golf ettiquette on the course.

some ppl clearly have zero of it. when i started golf and my scores were like 120 to 130.. i made sure i made my turn at max 2hrs and 20mins. we would just pick up the ball and apply gimme on the green. why would anyone read the green like a pro .. when he's already like 3 or 4 over par on the green.

and can still pretend like.. nothing's wrong/

Just met a group of idiots in front at PalmR yest. Slowly taking their time and chit chatting on the green. One of them had to carry a brolly to anywhere his ball is. He even sheltered his frd from sun while he's putting. what goondu.

Maybe he's scared of UV rays which affects him like how kryptonite affects superman.

Mental note to self: DO NOT BRING UMBRELLA FOR GAME ON SUNDAY WITH CHOCO.

My worst experience was years ago at Pulai. It was a Sunday afternoon and we had 2 flights for the day. Went to first tee-box and saw this angmoh family of four about to tee-off. Dad and mum were just an ok golfer but not the children. The daughter even had air shot once or twice and when she did hit the ball, it was a miserable 30m ahead.

We decided to talk to the starter and was told that we can proceed to the 2nd tee. Off we went. 1st flight teed off and was on the fairway about to hit their 2nd shot. Family caught up and the angmoh KPKB, said we shouldn't be allowed to overtake them and insisted that we let them go first. Seriously, if he asked nicely, we may have jumped a few more holes in front or just wait behind them. But he was downright rude. I couldn't hold it any longer and told him off. He then threatened to complain against us which I encouraged him to. He was quite pissed off and drove off the buggy, saying he will get the marshall.

Well, we proceeded to tee off and 2 - 3 holes later, we couldn't even see them from behind for the rest of the game. Sorry but I must say I have met a lot of angmoh who feel that they have the rights and will demand that they have the right of way.
