    Matt – you suggest some great ideas, buuut …. it all comes down to (ALWAYS comes down to) .. the Almighty Dollar…

    Courses .. including munis .. are under constant pressure to generate revenue; as much as possible. Easiest, most direct way to accomplish that is to pack the tee times and rent out carts.

    Sure they could raise prices for greens fees and limit tee times but then many courses – especially here in the East – will fear losing traffic and overall revenue to nearby competitors.

    Perhaps… Another way for courses to differentiate themselves is to assign, just as an example say, 3 days a week to beginners / slow play and 3 days a week to more advanced / fast play..? (7th day is as-is / catch-all).

    Another offbeat idea… Courses should also, imho, promote more and more clearly *whom* / what player type their course is more suitable for; and should also, imho, mark each tee position as suitable for eg. beginner / 150 yd drive vs advanced / 250 yd drive (as an analogy I’m thinking of the sign posts on ski trails).

    And… A course might also field a squad of volunteer marshals (who get free playing privileges) – with one marshal at every green to enforce pace of play.

    :)
