I enjoy playing with others and seem to play better when I do. The problem I see is communicating with others when you are on the course practicing or shooting a tour round. I would like to see some sort of chat area where you can talk with others that are coming on line while you are playing. Or, possibly a notification tag that tells them where I am and when I might be available.
For example: I am shooting one of the weekly 9 hole tour rounds and a buddy comes on. I am on the 2nd to last hole, this buddy invites me for a round but I have to decline or drop out of my round, to talk to them. But, I would like this buddy to know that in 10 min. or so I will be available to play.
Having chat abilities would be annoying while you are playing, I know, but to be able to talk to some one briefly would be great. Maybe allow a response in the invite window to tell them you are almost done with a round.
