    However you look at other pro sports like basketball they crank up the music, anouncer screams, fans yelling cheering, players take their shots no problem with all that noise. They even get all pumped up with it. Why can't golf / golfers get used to the idea of not always having everyone stand still don't say a word while another one shoots? If it became part of the game we can all get used to it, no? I know I could.
    If I have music, which has only been a handful of times, this is how I do it. Bluetooth in the cart at a volume that you need to be in or next to the cart to hear.

    I have never in my hundreds of rounds hear anyone playing music at a high volume. Must be lucky.

      Could you get used to very slow play, as well?

      That is, what's the difference between your loud music disrupting someone else's enjoyment of their game and someone else's slow play ruining yours?
      My loud music that you can't hear even from the putting green when my Clicgear is right beside the green? That loud music? Maybe you got a real good hearing aid I don't know.

      • All you guys playing music so low you can't even hear it from the green.... why bother with it then?

        If it's really that low (and I doubt that it is) it's not really adding much. Maybe just listen to some tunes in the clubhouse, or on the drive home, or at home or at work or commuting to work or when you're out.

        What's your favourite music that you can barely hear?

        maybe we could share a playlist!

          I did read the whole comment, including the part about cranking up the music.

          My concern is that, as music on the course becomes even more common, that it will also become common for the music to be played at volumes which will disturb other players. Not everyone can be expected to be as courteous and considerate as yourself. I have already experienced this at various courses (including Osprey Valley), so it's not localized to a particular place. Further, with the advent of very small and portable 'Bose'-type speakers, it's very easy now to have a lot of music on the course without having a very obvious boom box on the back of the cart.

          • Get yourself a set of bluetooth earbuds if you want to listen to your music while you're golfing. I don't want to hear your music while I'm out playing.

            • Doug, one of the guys that I played with this winter at Peninsula asked me before the round whether a little music bothered me? I responded: "No problem." Despite the fact that he's a very nice man, there was a problem. It was almost impossible to have a conversation without shouting. Worse, the tranquility of the round was destroyed. If the birds were chirping, I didn't hear them. So, my verdict on this topic is that, if you want to listen to music, use your earbuds.

              As for shirts, wear one. I don't need to see everything that jiggles after another person's shot. It's bad enough having to inadvertently catch a glimpse of a corpulent guy at the beach sporting his Speedo (I can only imagine what women think of such a sight).

              This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

              • Don't want to hear music/golf on the course -- either in my group or coming from another. Just not part of golf as I see it. Out (for now).

                    I completely agree. I can't stand hearing golf on the course. Totally throws off my game. The golf I hear from my group is usually the worst. Especially when I'm playing as a single.

                        For a spectator-based event like a golf tournament, and limited to the first tee, I have no problem with this.

                        I make a clear distinction between what happens during tournament play versus casual play. If a sanctioned event wants to 'provide' music/entertainment, that's fine. My only concern is in regard to loud music that can be heard by other groups while on a public course.

                        I liken music during a round to someone smoking in my vehicle, even if they ask permission. It's all well and fine to say that you can just say no, but it's obvious that the person asking permission is expecting you to say yes.

                        As I've said before, we can listen to music in so many other places in our lives day and night. Why is it so important that music has to be included in a round of golf?

                        • Oh-that answer is very simple Benz--it's because people are unbelievably {understatement} addicted to their devices, and find it very challenging to function without them. This gives people another way to not be separated from them.

                            Yes, and music is almost as bad.

                            Must have been a Freudian slip on my part. I've gone ballastic a couple of times when the newer playing partners I'm playing with point out the obvious. Fold the turf over on the ball: "Hit that a little fat". Put it in the water: "It's wet". Blade one: "Skulled that". Growing up, I played with a bunch of guys and we all stuck to the code of "A guy hits a bad shot, STFU and let him brood, etc.". Attempting to commiserate was not seen as helpful.

                              I respect people's addiction to their devices. I don't worry about cellphones on the course because conversations are usually kept short (if at all) and the odd text message doesn't hold things up. However, IMO, because the time actually on the golf course represents such a small part of our lives I don't think dispensing with 'group' music is such an imposition.

                                What percentage of the guys that don't like music playing, play their matches for money?
