There have been very few times that someone I was throwing with played music. Out loud that is. The one time someone asked them to turn it off and they left. Of course it should never happen at a tournament. During casual play I see it as a group thing. But you need to also be considerate of others on the course too. If your alone, jam out baby. I'm thinking it mainly depends on if everyone likes the music. Some like rap, country, rock, bluegrass. While others can't stand it. So please play nicely and keep the tunes down. Try to get along with one another children.
