I did starter/ranger at a nice course in College. We did that volume too, and on a day with 240 trying to get around, double teed, a group getting 5 minutes off pace can really screw things up. Of course the slow group is pissed at you for riding their ass but they aren't nearly as pissed as the guy 7 groups behind who's on a 5:45 pace... when that happens in the morning group it's a real CF for the afternoon. We would actually make groups skip holes to get them back on pace. At $150 per round they weren't always thrilled about that...I am a Starter/Ranger at a Premier Golf Course. And yes we will pair a single with a 3 some. Speeds things up. We start daily 175-240 Golfers in a day teeing off every 9 minutes. Need to keep the pace of play. We are really busy. Guys get pissed if they try to tee off to soon and I stop them. (Kindly). They have to understand the timing. I always thought I was a bad golfer. Until Last year when I started as a starter/ranger. I quickly found out I am not as bad as I think I am.
