    You can hardly drive down a country road around my area without finding several piles of garbage along the roadsides. I suspect it's a byproduct of municipalities placing limits on weekly garbage allowed from residences. Seems people would rather save a couple of bucks on the "extra" tags you have to buy to dispose of more than their allotted amount. They could drive right to the dump and get rid of it for $5 but I guess they'd rather drive around the country and dump it for $0. Pretty shameful stuff but I doubt they give it more than a second thought.
    Not just the countryside, regularly see it in residential and industrial areas of my and other towns ....garbage, tires, mattresses.

    seeds and butts are commonplace at the golf course now. The ground of Our parking lot and around the clubhouse is littered daily with cig butts

    I don't really care what somebody wears to play golf , that is up to the course to decide.

    music is everywhere it seems. Played in a big Member Guest Thurs/Friday and I bet at least 1/2 or more of carts had tunes playing at a respectable volume. 4 of the 5 opponents we played including our cart had music. Only time i really could hear music from other carts was at the lunch break or if we were parked together at a teebox waiting. At my course all our carts are equipped with bluetooth speakers and most groups use them.

He denied everything until I pulled the clip on my phone and he said he thought it was his house as it was dark outside.....................................

    Likely the same kind of people that drive out to the country to throw bags of household garbage onto the shoulders and ditches of the sideroads.

    Neat.

    A nephew took his two sons, a 4 and 5 year old to play mini putt. As can be expected of boys this age, with a club in hand and something to hit with them, they started to get a little rambunctious.

    He called time out on them and told them they could continue only if they played "gentleman's golf". The were told to be polite to one another, call each other "sir", take turns to hit their ball, and to stand still and not speak when the other was hitting.

    Turned into a different game.

    There may be hope yet.
    That is so good to read.

    Ya, and the Spiderman T-shirts were not quite to dress code either, but the level of civility was exemplary.

    I'll keep this short. At my course some years ago. A member approached the group ahead of them, as they were driving carts through bunkers, along with plenty of other bad behavior. The member asked them nicely to clean it up a little and keep moving. They told him to go F@@@ himself of course.

    The member was a provincial court judge. A lot of pull with the Police, and made a direct call. They nailed them driving out of the parking lot with two drivers impaired.
    Nice!

    I’ve seen it from all ages. It’s not a generational thing. I know plenty of millennials and gen z who have deep respect for the game, etiquette, so on. I’ve seen 60 year olds tearing up a course and creeping on the course staff.

    The pandemic golf boom is a classic example of be careful what you wish for. Great for course revenues. But how much extra time and attention is now devoted to curtailing anti social behaviour?
