If you were on the fairway and obviously not very far away from the Tee box, when the next flight decided to tee off the ball to you. And yes they did not shour "Fore" etc. What would be the proper actions?

Would you wait at the next hole for them to arrive and confront them or just play on or any other issue ?

Just for discussion only Smile

Hit the ball back to them. Use a driver off the fairway, so the ball is low and penetrating.

I've observed this situation before where one of the golfer on the fairway picked up the ball and threw it into the bushes, resulting in a tussle between the 2 flights!

I was pretty tempted to let them pass me and i drive the ball to them, but then i was thinking 1 wrong does not justify for my actions . So i just shout at them and move on .

Throwing the ball into bushes is a good ideal :p

I would move on. Get on with life. Live a happy life. Live it to the fullest.

This used to happen to me a lot.

I would always confront the offending group, but after a while, I realised that nothing good ever came out it... at the very best, I would get an insincere apology, at worse, they would play dumb...

I'm with Technospaz - save your time and energy and move on.. after throwing the !@$#$%* ball in the bush.

after calling the Marshall, stay put and do not carry on with the game. the disciplinary committee will most likely suspend them for 3 to 6 months

if they drive up and sincerely apologize, just let it pass

Yeap i will prob do the same and just move on. Throwing the ball really seems like a good ideal.

zhenxua - Is that the norm for country clubs ? I'm not sure abt this

I will finish tat hole and let them pass... not point having them behind me for the rest of the game and worry that balls will start flying towards you...

I also encounter one funny situation on a Par 5 and you can almost see 3 flight playing together... haha

lucky not 3 flight of 4... two in flight in front of us, 3 in my flight, and 2 in the flight behind us...

Maybe I should start a thread on How to let the flight pass thru, the correct way...
