Isn’t a group which is playing too slowly rude to the other golfers?
Yes. Common golf etiquette is that slower players let others play through. It is also usual to limit groups to four, not five players. But, age of entitlement strikes again.
Correct.. there is nothing more annoying than a slow group ahead, who then slows down the entire golf course. Think about a car driving 40 Mph on a 55 mph limit 2-lane highway.
A group playing too slowly should WAVE THROUGH the following group. it is also extremely inpolite and in many cases (depending on the golf club’s rules) illegal to have FIVE players in a group. A FOURSOME is normal.
