The Golf Course Just Got Louder
With the invention of the Bluetooth speaker, people are now able to bring their music with them pretty much anywhere, including the golf course. The question is, should you be allowed to play it on the golf course? I’ve heard a lot of opinions on this subject, both for and against. Here are my thoughts on it…
Personally, playing music on the course adds to my enjoyment of the game (depending on the type of music that is being played – no whip nae nae, please), and most of the people I play with feel the same way. Now, we’re also mindful of other golfers that we are either playing with, or nearby. We aren’t looking to be obnoxious about it, we don’t have the volume set extraordinarily loud. That is unless we’re playing some Wham!… Our goal is not to ruin anyone else’s time on the course, but only to enhance our own. Does that sound selfish?
I understand that there are many fellow golfers out there who don’t agree with me on this, and they are entitled to their opinion. But whether they like it or not, there’s a growing trend with golfers enjoying music during their round these days, and I don’t think that will be changing anytime soon. In this day and age of golf, where everyone says less and less people are taking up the sport, we should be looking at ways to grow the enjoyment of the game, not diminish it.
I’m curious to hear what all of you think about this topic, so feel free to share your thoughts with us. Just make sure you talk loud, as I might not be able to hear you over my music.
