If you wish to see all of this stuff just play at a public course. The private clubs don't tolerate it.

I wish that was true, at my club I spend more time filling other people's divots and fixing pitch marks than my own.

 

I refill my sand bucket every hole and may times it's empty with still more divots to fill, some of our members obviously don't give a rats.

Fixing pitch marks on the greens should be mandatory, while most days I won't have to worry about filling divots on the fairways

I am sure there must be a few blokes/girls who subscribe to the bunkers are a hazard theory and don't rake them even when they walk past the rake to get to their ball.

I yelled out aT an A grader today as he used his foot to 'rake/smooth' his marks in the sand.


Picks up the rake and starts furiously raking the sand flicking it out of the bunker.....



Poor bastard had no idea how to take it properly......


There's another one.... Teach A graders proper bunker raking technique

We wouldn't have to if c graders caddied for us. Surely that would be a more productive use of their time than playing.

Typical A grader response, for mine,


Reminds me of a Shane Warne quote...... Can't rake bunkers, can't carry own gear...

Surely it would be far more effective if A graders caddied for the C graders and helped them to improve their golfing skills.

I believe that all retired c graders who own a cat and drive a petrol powered cart should be put down.

Caddies don't help people improve their golfing skills and besides, C graders are beyond help in most cases.

B graders are aspiring A graders, C graders should aspire to be lawn bowlers ;)
