I'm not a fan of when you are called off the driving range or putting green because they say you're on the tee, so you drive over, and the other group is still on the tee box. I usually need every precious minute before my round.

Spot on. The starter (well, head pro, really) at
Crail in Scotland, in response to our request for tips,
to keep our putts low to the ground. Classic! Just
imagine the humorless, self-important drivel that
those Myrtle Beach cranks would have offered.

As he was obviously a master of the completely obvious, you should have asked that old fart at Long Bay what
the dimply white ball was for.

The whole of the east coast golf industry has that
starter's attitude; like Friday at 5 PM on an LA Freeway. That's why I gave up on golf out there; too many people crammed into too few spaces. It's west of the Mississippi only, for my golf.

Well, PW and LB are two of the higher-end courses, correct? I believe that the snootier the owner, the pricklier the staff is required to be. I found those terms in Webster's, so don't question my vernacular. My suggestion would be to grab a few more dozen free tees, snag some free mark repair tools, and steal a tee marker and a flag when the starter isn't looking.

I agree with the spirit of what you say, but it's not quite as simple as you paint it. There's the East -- then there's the East. If you drive into upstate NY, you will find bucolic areas with beautiful, relatively empty courses. And, needless to say, in Maine you can sometimes have a course to yourself.

The problem, of course, is the huge metropolitan areas; get far enough away from those and the East is much like the rest of the country.

This is why I drive into upstate NY to play. I travel about 70 miles to a certain course; it's often not that crowded and gives you a lot for your money.
