Most annoying sound on a DG course?

Someone's pity.

Usually a group of 8 to 10 who share their four wide rimmed drivers and who whoot and holler after every single throw. That pisses me off.
^ Because the purity of the sport is what brought us all together We all started somewhere, and of the 8 people 1 or 2 may actually play and help the sport. The reason most of us get to play in the first place is that it is open to everyone.

I enjoy the large groups most of the time, they are entertaining, and eventually one of them throws it in the muck and I get to play through. I kinda miss the enthusiasm that came when I first started playing and a 10 foot putt was a big deal.

Music is a touchy issue, I don't give a rip, if a song is going to make me miss my putt then it probably has nothing to do with the putt. If your consentration is that thrown by a rhythmic sound, I feel sorry for your ol' lady. We ain't all pro's here, and if my music on a casual round bothers you, I apologize, let me play through, chances are you are one of those guys that takes 90 seconds on a putt anyway and I'm tired of waiting for your geritol to kick in

One of the things that I love about this sport is that we accept everyone (not on DGCR of course, we are fascist on this site), but the sounds that come with this game are what separate us, frogs, bagpipes, crazy Indian cricket players, softball teams, and random bums shouting at their malt liquor are all part and parcel with what we have.

Tournament and major league play I leave my speakers at home, if someone in the group even rolls an eye brow I'll leave them in the car, but if you are playing up on me enough that you can hear my tune's then your etiquette is what is truly in question.

^^ You have to remember that it's not music they're objecting to, it's anyone's music other than theirs. Personally I feel this is reasonable. If some jerkoff was blaring twangy country across the whole course it would significantly diminish my enjoyment of the game as well, which is why I only use my speaker when the course isn't crowded and turn it way down or silence it as I approach other groups(or park users in general). I also keep headphones in my bag for when the course IS crowded or some moron doesn't understand that they only need to play their music at a level for their own enjoyment.
