Two years ago I wrote an article categorically stating that music on the golf course has no place. Actually, I still believe that music played over a speaker on the course is bad form. I find the noise intrusive and disruptive to my concentration. However, times are a changing and I thought I would revisit my hard stance.
It seems I am not the only one who does not listen to music on the golf course.
After some introspection on the topic, I decided to adjust my view about music on the course……slightly. Basically, if someone wants to listen to their music (in very low tones) on the range or putting area, I think I can accept the minor intrusion. I have yet to encounter this situation in the practice area, so I guess I am trying to change and not to draw a line in the sand.
I still believe that music should not be played on the course because it will be disruptive; so it should not be played. But, quietly on the range is something I am open too.
How about you? Do you listen to music on the course or practice range?
