    Ooh I get it. My DH doesnt play golf, but his sport takes up all day saturday. I've said that I need a couple of hours a week to myself to make it a bit more fair - but the reality is,with me having 2 kids home full time + 1 in school,him gone for work 5 days + sport one day, & family/ church commitments on sundays - there is no time left in the week for me to get my time. I just tell myself that I will get 'me' time when the kids are all grown up. That's a long time away though!

    I am in 2 minds about encouraging DS1 (4 yrs) to play golf. On one hand, DH can take him off my hands and teach him, yay. But on the other hand there will be way too much golf loving in our lives. I fear family holidays would need to include golf and that is not my idea of a holiday, lol. I also think kids have enough activities to fit it let alone a sport that takes 6 hours.

    We too live 500m from a golf course but DH has joined cheaper one (local one is quite expensive/exclusive). All it means is that there's an extra half hour travel time each way, gone for longer!

    DS seems obsessed. Like DF practices while they play outside and he's out doing it as well. I'm the same though, in 2 minds. I like that he enjoys a 'sport' if u can call it that but all I can think is more money! Golf is friggin expensive!
    I can't say I hate golf, I hate that DF thinks it comes first. DF is usually gone about 5 hours or so. With travel, he tries to go early but he still only gets home as DS is going to bed. That's what really bothers me. Especially if he's been at work all week!

    I would use DS taking interest as a positive thing. As in 'DH - DS loves watching you play golf. How about you take him and show him a real game'.

    If they come back with 'I can't' point out all the supposedly relaxing hobbies you have to take him to.

    I have mentioned it a few times but he comes back with DS can't concentrate long enough. Which well a 2 year old can't lol. The range is good for him though. He does really enjoy it. DF gets annoyed though cause if DS gets distracted (which happens a bit) he doesn't get to hit balls as well so gets ****ty. Nothing can get in the way of golf for him. Really irritating!
    I should start mentioning everything I have to take him with me to do and see what he says. He gets alone time. I don't 😒

    I often say that sport is my DHs first love. It comes before family, 100%, EVERY time. It's hard to always be second best to a bunch of guys hitting/kicking/throwing/etc a ball around for a few hours.

    DF can sometimes be persuaded but his first choice is sport. Either playing or watching. Frustrates me so much. I don't mind watching sport but I don't get annoyed if I miss it! He gets so foul.

    I will admit I don't have any issues with DH playing golf one day a week although it would be nice for me to have the same but it just doesn't work out, there aren't enough days off during the week for that to happen. Saturday he plays golf Sunday is family day. What I do have issues with is the non stop talking about it and every time with drive past the driving range (which is a lot because it's on our road) the comments about how he should be out there doing that to get better blah blah blah! It drives me insane. And the other thing is if he has had a bad round the foul mood he comes home in, gosh it makes me mad! The amount of times I have had to remind him that he should be happy that he got to have a day to himself doing something that he enjoys every week and that regardless of how he has played you don't come home in a mood and speak to us like crap and sulk around the house!!! It makes my blood boil!!!

    But again - you deal with it so he has to learn to lol. Too mean.

    DH hates golf. He brews beer and tinkers with his car. But lets DS 'help' from time to time.
