Group of 5


Topic starter

Hey fellas -

Have you guys heard of any courses letting out a group of 5 going out together? Heading down last week of April and was trying to get a feel if we would have any luck on a Wednesday or Thursday of getting out with 5. Please let me know if you have heard anything and if it is course specific, please include.

Many thanks,

You will probably be on the tee sheet as 3 + 2. 
Depending on how busy they are or the time of day, some courses will
allow you to play as 5 as long as you can keep up.    Some may be strictly 
against it and some might depend on who is rangering that day.       
I don't think anybody has played 5 often enough in MB to name courses 
that allow 5 or don't.   
You could always start 3 + 2, then pair up later.  
I will be interesting to read in your report who allowed 5 and who didn't.

Art is right.  The few times we had an odd-numbered group the courses made us go out as a 2 & 3.  We sent them out and they tried to play as a fivesome, but the rangers would split them up.  


When we were booking this year with Brian, I asked him a similar question.  I was told that it would be on the tee sheet as a 3 and 2.  From there it was going to be in the hands of the starter.  It was a possibility that 5 would be allowed to go out together, with a strong word of encouragement to keep pace with the group in front.

Very likely if going out as 2 group that both could ultimately end up trying to marry up on the course.  From there your fate is in the hands of the ranger.
