    This guy is a DBAG....he's a regular and knows better that jeans aren't permitted on property and then lights up and threatens a staff member in the pro shop.....especially a female.....f8ckin GOOF.
    IMO...the GM. HP or asst HP should ban this TOOL.

    Obviously, it happens, but so far, I've yet to encounter any Covid TOOLS when out shopping or golfing.

      Played BM (Mtn) in 2007 at twilight with the wife. Really need to pick a specific target off the tee. Unknowingly hit into the creek/gouge on #3???
      I don't like to cart...but enjoyed the course.

      Have played OV a few times....I really like the back 9, but find the front 9 boring.

      I'd like to play Pacific Highlands....and Royal Colwood & Victoria G&CC (if I could get access).

      Storey Creek is my fav BC course so far.

          It's still the club's call as to what is permitted and what is not; just have to respect their decisions. For example, some clubs require jacket and tie in the formal areas of their clubhouse, and I'm fine with that and also with what they define as "formal areas".

            A comment worthy of your picture.

              The majority of clubs courses, especially those with daily fee structures don't care and if they do, they rarely enforce.
              I see, bare feet, flip flops, ripped up pull over shell, cargo shorts, jeans, hoodies, T-shirts, soccer shoes ( that I had to say something about) pretty much anything goes. I am surprised at how many people like to go barefoot....with all those chemicals , sheesh.

              private clubs are a bit more "traditional"
              over the years i have been told i must have my shirt tucked in, that my golf shirt was too colourful ( that was at my own club and all I did was buy more and wilder shirts) , not me but playing partners have been told shorts were too short and others their shorts were inappropriate, shirt has to have a collar, cant wear white sports socks.
              I have no issues with any of these and always wear my shirt tucked now anyways which is proper.

              • I'm not too fussy about things like dress code - how someone else dresses has zero impact on my game. I don't see much correlation between dress and etiquette.

                A reminder from the starter about divots and ball marks isn't going to sink in with most people. Golfers are fired up to get moving and are already thinking about their first shot. Unless you have a really engaging starter, people barely listen. They need visual reminders and cues over and over for it to register.

                More carts than ever are equipped with GPS displays. I'd do a popup on-screen reminder to fix/replace whenever the cart nears the green, when it leaves the tee area, or as a screen saver when untouched for X minutes. You could even run an animation on the proper way to fix a ball mark, and ensure every golfer is given a cheap plastic one before they tee off. This could also be reinforced with signage. Small signs where you exit the tee grounds reminding people about replacing divots. Similar signs about repairing ball marks would be helpful near the greens, but don't put them at the front where you're approaching, because most people walking to the green are focussed on looking at their ball. Place them where most exit the green as a reminder going forward - "Did you remember to fix your ball mark? We're watching you." Keep them light, even try to be funny so it doesn't read like you're being yelled at.

                Edit - I'm also in the signage business, so basically a shameless plug for work - PM me!!!

                  Nor should it ! In fact not much if anything others do bother me on the course (unless I am working) except maybe if they are causing significant physical damage like driving cart on a green.

                  have run into a few people who were apparel and etiquette freaks....
