Default dogs on leases

I have been running our local course that is open over the winter with our dog. I go early in the morning when it is quiet and few people are around. I let the her off the lease, but she comes right to me when called. Over the last several weeks I have had 3 similar incidences with dogs that people don't have on leases but can't control. All 3 times the dogs won't leave us alone and the owners have been extraordinarily slow in getting to the dog getting control of it (range from 5 minutes to 20+). It isn't the end of the world (obviously), but I've had to stop my round for that time, my dog isn't always fond of other dogs and can be defensive, and I guess is just a pet peeve of mine (pun not intended, but approved of after the fact). Is this just me or have others experienced this as well?

Why lease when you can buy?

Oh millennials, now you can lease dogs instead of owning them? What will they think of next.

Your dog should be on a leash if you are playing at a public course. Same with the other 3 people you've run into. Either leash the dog or leave it at home. It doesn't matter if you think your dog behaves better than other people's dogs.

I don't have a leash on when I play, and no you're not getting me to wear one.

I personally love dogs, but they need to be on a leash for sure, the course I am building is on farm land surrounded by farmers that do not have their dog fenced in or anything. Because of this I am going to have to ban dogs from my course sadly, just because other people do not keep their dogs under control. This is from a liability standpoint and it kills me to do it.

If your dog gets "defensive" around other dogs, it needs to be on a leash.

She does not get aggressive. She doesn't want a dog twice it's size running full steam at her and tries to avoid them, maybe defensive conveys the wrong idea. Any time I even see another dog she has come to me and is put on a leash.
