Weber: Agrees golfers should obey course rules

Posted

Kudos to you Pam (“Players not being very considerate,” Sun City West Independent, Sept. 9, 2020).

I was president of the Deer Valley Men’s Golf Club for five years. I have sent letters to many golfers in the club about the infraction. I have been cursed at for telling players to stay away from the greens.

Many of the individuals who drive wherever they want are employees in the pro shop or a former manager of a pro shop in Sun City West. When people came to me about a player in their group not respecting the course I have asked if they mentioned it to the player. The response was no. I have told them they are just as guilty for not bringing it to the person’s attention.

All I can suggest is take a photo of the golf cart and send it to Pat O’Hara with the date, time, hole number and course name. If it is on a Wednesday, send it to the club president as well.

To this day I still ask players to protect the course and advise them of their infractions.
