Left after 15

First time playing so maybe a one off. After watching hole after hole of backed up holes I bailed. Wide open easy course. Could be 3 3.5 hour round if folks are all riding. Didn’t really understand why there was singles walking with groups with cars. You also had a lot of groupies playing different Tees.
