What courses are you complaining about? I don't like the deep faces in bunkers either, but that's golf. I'm more bothered by the lack of respect from other golfers who don't rake the sand.
Totally agree. Not raking traps, not filling in divots, NOT REPAIRING BALL MARKS, tossing cigarette butts...just to mention a few, that's what should be improved upon, and that ain't the fault of the courses!

When you see a cigarette butt on the green all you can think is wtf.

One thing I have noticed. Back home every tee thrash can was filled with empty beer cans. The starters would check your bag to make sure you're weren't bringing your own beer. Had to buy beer from the club house or the pretty girl driving the beverage cart for $3 a can. Here, you can do what you want and I never see anyone drink beer. Maybe it's all hard liquor, maybe people don't find drinking in the heat is fun anymore. I remember once playing with some young guys. One fellow bought a six pack for $18 on the 6th hole, by the 9th hole they were gone, I don't think I could hit the ball if I had done that.

I think that when I see a butt any where. Seems like (some or most) smokers don't think flicking a butt is littering. Drives me crazy.


Disclaimer: I'm a cigar smoker. I see cigars as well.

I got hooked up with three women on an exec and after every hole they would do a shot of Fireball..........11:00 in the morning.
And I really miss the cart girls!

They are gone at Havana Kenya too. Was told for more ease of mowing staff. Suggest complaining to Pro of course
