Default Re: WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN COMING ACROSS ANOTHER BALL ON THE COURSE??

Was playing last week and there was a ball at the start of our fairway, my partner's and I walked right past it. A Marshall came by when we were 30 feet past and picked it up.. lol

Really didn't think Marshalls were the problem LOL...

On an unrelated note, playing at Savannah in Cambridge and the Marshall was complaining about the group in front of us that they were waiting to hit until people were off the green 400+ yards away...

I asked him, what did they say when you told them? He said, 'I didn't bother'

Now I know he's just there to collect balls

I see marshalls hawking balls in the trees and fescue all the time.

never have seen one pick up a ball that was in play but perhaps in his travels he saw that it had been sitting there for a while so scooped it up?

If it's in water or bush I'll take it. If it looks like it's in play, fairway or rough, leave it.

Yet another reason to not play ProV...
