Letter: What people do on golf courses
First Published Aug 29 2014 05:05 pm • Last Updated Aug 29 2014 05:05 pm

The top four irritations that golfers have on the golf course:

1. Slow play. The cameras are off and you should keep up with the group in front of you.

2. Not fixing ball marks on the green. You made it, fix it!

3. Not replacing divots or filling them.

4. This is the most irritating and disgusting thing golfers see: people chewing sunflower seeds and spitting the shells on the green.

What is wrong with people? Have they no decency? Golfers, make a new rule for yourselves. If you see anyone spitting shells, say something or report it to the golf marshal. Can we please end this horrible habit? Please, a little common courtesy to your fellow golfers. Yuck!
