Why make a Tee Time, when friends of the starter just walks up and takes our time?
I have played Pohick GCon numerous occasions, but this round made me rethink if I will ever return. A bunch of my buddies decided, why not take off of work and play a round someplace, so a friend booked a Tee Time at Pohick GC. We checked in and "using" the Tee Time Golf Pass, paid $20.00. Our Tee time was at 11, so we checked in an hour before our tee time. As we are waiting some guys walk up to the starter and "ask" if they could get out, we assume they were all friends and he said sure. When our Time got closer, one of my buddies asked the starter if we were next and he said - No! I will call you? So my buddy said, everyone you are sending out is on time, so what is going on? Well, you can imagine all hell broke out, because we questioned the starter and like magic our tee time got pushed back to 11:30, because they had a frost warning? Really? When we finally got to the first tee a 362, Par 4 - we waited until the 4 guys were on the green. However, the starter kept saying "you guys need to tee off or else". The guys I play with are good golfers and most of us, used an Iron or Hybrid off the 1st tee. We waited on every hole until we made the turn. A Marshall came along and told us and the group in back to hold up until the group in front of us cleared the green to create a buffer. Anyway, was it worth $20.00? - It was. Will we return? No..
