Wow how lucky are you if this is the only problem in your life. Remember it’s the score you put on the card not how quickly you played.

If the group is keeping up with group ahead, but the 2nd and 3rd group behind them play quicker then you will get 3 groups backed up and it's NO ONES fault.

Now if you tee people off 15/20 minutes early, but keep the 9 minute gap then it's no ones fault. If you tee off 15 minutes early and one of your crew it's late, but the starter still lets your group go then it's the starters fault as they are not supposed to let folks tee off before their assigned time....the group does not have to tee off before it's assigned tee time....no matter what the starter says. Call the golf shop if you don't believe me. I used to work as an ambassador here.

Still there are groups that like to go early and sometimes you get behind them and can hardly keep up.

Likelier cause of back ups...not playing from the correct distance and your excuses can be: I like the challenge(but never reach a green in one on par 3's.....I like to use my driver(but still come up short of the green)...MULLIGANS: people here seem to think it's some sort of rule...it's not(doesn't even appear in the USGA'S RULE book)and they do it on almost every tee(one person I was playing with claimed they'd hit till it was a good one-REALLY?).

Exec etiquette : if the group ahead is leaving for the next tee then the first person of the group behind them should have the first person ready to go. Leave the chit-chat for waiting on the tee or the bar. If there is a group behind(getting off the previous green)
you and you don't lose the first ball, but it's horrid then let everyone else tee off. Then bring your ball to the shortest drive and play from there. If you chip then putt bring both clubs with you onto the green and place the wedge between the pin and your cart. When finished with the hole put your club(s) away and go to the next tee. That is where you put your score down. Don't park your cart short of the green. Try to park it pin high at all times. When you go into a bunker bring the rake with you then you won't go back and forth in the bunker except on your way out while raking....properly please.

This is READY GOLF....that means to hit when ready if it won't endanger another player or interfere with their play, but it also means that be READY TO PLAY when it's your turn.

Lastly *whew* it's exec golf if it bunches up and caused by replaced hips/knees/shoulders(see slow moving)then let it slide. Some people can not walk very well or fast anymore. 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. They'll sometimes call and complain, but they obviously didn't take good golf school or read the pamphlet. At the bottom most rung of golfing ladder are those who just don't care what you or anyone think or say....they'll just do whatever they like *shrug*. They're few and far between thank God.
Well said.

Agree this happens a lot, but should not cause back up later in the round. Biggest problem is slow players and a lot of beginners. Some of the beginners need to assess their playing speed and if they are having a bad hole, pick up the ball and move on.

Sending a group out early, doesn't cause 3 groups on each tee box. Slow play does. You can't tee off till the group on number 1 tee box is off the green.

Default T-times

You are not supposed to T-off until the group in front of you begins to T-off. There would not be multiple groups on a T box.

Show up 20 mins before T time , as indicated in the Golf instructions for TV and most problems will be solved. Habitually late is inconsiderate of others _ for those who care

Why do the starters let foresomes wait for their forth person? If they’re late let the other 3 go ahead & start & the person that’s late let them wait until another threesome needs a forth & play with them. Sometimes I come by myself & the starter will do that to me & that’s OK. Remember they say the Executive courses schedule every 7 mins. all day. Some people are inconsiderate about being on time, because they think they’re special. Do this a couple of times to a person & they be there, but if they’re late they’ll probably just complain. These people know who they are & their team mates do too.

I don't think I have 3ver experianced anything other than what you suggested. At least on the championship courses. If one person is late the remaining 3 start. When the one late shows up he can join us but can't play whatever he missed.

We have a rule in our group that if you are late for our tee time, you just drive out to whatever hole we are on and join us in progress.

Golf is not life or death situation, it's much more important than that :-)

I agree, I wouldn’t think any golf course wouldn’t let a single person play the holes they miss to catch up. I guess what I was trying to say is if the person is late & there 3 golf mates already left & I would think any golf course would make them fill in a spot with unknown threesome if they want to play, eventually maybe that person would get there on time or get up earlier if they want to play. But your exactly right! Most of the golf courses are booked up & I don’t think they are going to make 20 or 30 people wait for 1 person.
