Mark, we had some fairly long rounds in flight 48 and 49 but considering cart path only, the conditions being as wet as they were, and the fact we were playing tournament golf…I did not think it was all that bad. Now, that said, I did not have a 6+ hour round. Had a couple that probably were close to 5-1/2 or so but as I said I thought it was understandable. We had 2 lost balls on same hole one day and that cost us 4 or 5 minutes each and we looked for potential lost balls almost every day. Balls plugging in rough, in fairway, blind shots…it all adds up.
Some days saw the marshals a lot, other days not so much. Guess it all depends on the course(s).
Sorry you had bad experience.
