I'll go one further. How about a public course with the following rules:

1. In order to play there you must have a membership card from the course.

2. In order to receive a membership card you need to carry a current USGA handicap index. No index, no play.

3. In order to maintain your membership card, you must be capable of completing your round of golf in 3-1/2 hours or less.

4. If you fail to complete your rounds in 3-1/2 hours more than 3 times, you're suspended, more than 5, you lose your card and go play somewhere else.

5. Tee times are organized throughout the day based on your pace of play rating. Players with lower average elapsed times get priority on morning tee times, with slower players playing later in the day.

While this might be extreme, I think it is high time the golf industry figures out a way to time foursomes, identify the problem players, and make some corrections.

Sure, there are a lot of people who wouldn't like this and wouldn't play there. But I think there are a lot of people that would love it and would only play there. This would separate the people who want a day long stroll in the grass from those that just want to play and move on to the rest of their day.

We all have a dream, we all have a vision. Have you played Bandon Dunes yet? If not, head west. Their rangers are courteous yet firm, and WILL keep you in line and on time. I would play your course, I would play the hip-hop course, and I would play any other course that might be available. Speaking of which, there is a free course down in PA somewhere. I'll be blogging on it soon.

Hip-Hop golf? What a novel concept.
