It’s possible, with all the single driver golf carts the starter just needs to manage the parking area.

Default Tee off early

How early a group tees off has no bearing on backlogs. If it takes 2 hours to play it doesn’t matter. If we all tee of on time then two hours is two hours. Period.

Default On more thing, please no fishing!

Avoid fishing for golf balls! I was behind a group last week and one guy had no interest in golfing if there was a pond near by where he could fish for drown balls.

Agree 100%. Just enjoy your round of golf and adjust to the pace even if it is slow. This is not pro golf

Golfers I play with like going off early. We went off early Friday and there was no hold up. Also something not mentioned in the replies I read, I sometimes I lay up and pitch up to the green when they leave, this helps the people behind you.
NOTE: PLEASE DON'T HIT SIX MULLIGANS AND SEARCH FOR ALL SIX BALLS.

I see people all the time who show up a couple of minutes before their tee time or a few minutes after and display indignation when the starter tells them their late.

Got behind a twosome once, the man pretended to be pitching and putting, while the woman hunted for balls.

I never get a survey. If I did I would request more executive courses south of 44.

Agree. Its a game. Not a life and death situation. Relax and enjoy the day and find something else to stress about

Don't forget that on par 4s and 5s, you can tee off before the group in front of you is finished. Most of us are not going to hit our drive 300 yds and hit someone. I see many groups who play the 4s the same way they play the 3s. They wait until the group ahead is off the green before starting.

Now, I know I will hear "what if someone is late, better to make everyone show up a half hour early!
The easy solution to that problem is if you show up late and miss your posted Tee time, you don't play! Do that once, and I guarantee next time you will be on time."The needs of the many outweigh the inconsideration of the few".
I hope others who feel as I do will highlight this suggestion in our yearly villager survay.

"If they're obviously clueless the ambassador isn't doing their job as then can make them skip a hole or two...they'll either ask why or know why."

I have never seen or heard of an ambassador on an executive course ask people to skip a hole. They might politely ask a group if they could pick up their pace.
Championship courses are a different story.
