I hate being the bad guy but no, not in my foursome. Different likes and dislikes between people, lots of different types of music.

For rule info…
My opinion is during a fun weekend round, no problem, but not during a tournament.
Wearing Headphones or Earplugs During Stipulated Round
The use of headphones or earplugs to eliminate noise or other distractions is prohibited under Rule 14-3.
Decision 14-3/16 covers listening to music or some other broadcast during a round. Here is the text of that Decision:
Rule 14-3a states that a player may not use any artificial device or unusual equipment that “might assist him making a stroke or in his play.” Listening to music or a broadcast while making a stroke or for a prolonged period might assist the player in his play, for example, by eliminating distractions or promoting a good tempo. Therefore, the use of an artificial device to listen to music or a broadcast, whether or not through headphones, while making a stroke or for a prolonged period of time during a stipulated round is a breach of Rule 14-3. However, it would not be a breach of Rule 14-3 for a player to listen to a device briefly, for example, to obtain the results of another sporting event or traffic information, while walking between the putting green of one hole and the teeing ground of another hole.
There is no restriction on listening to music or other broadcasts while practicing (whether on the practice ground or on the golf course, and whether by oneself or while playing with others), although club rules and disciplinary codes could apply in such circumstances.August 19, 2019 at 2:54 pm #46828Mike StClairParticipant
I really don’t have a problem with people playing music, I just don’t like hearing it.August 19, 2019 at 6:58 pm #46853Rick KimbrellParticipant
There have been times when I would have liked to have been able to wear earbuds to shut out the stupid chatter that seemed to never shut up…even when you are trying to play your shot. But…wearing them for that reason would be against the rules.August 19, 2019 at 8:35 pm #46856Mike CheesemanParticipant
There was a guy in my flight last year that wore earbuds for every round.August 22, 2019 at 2:06 pm #46954Scott T. – World AmKeymaster
