Attn Members: Go ahead and misbehave

The 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale / FBR Open is different from other holes in golf tournaments. It's enclosed with seating (like a stadium) and rather than the enforced silence at all other holes, this one allows (and even encourages) viewers to yell, boo, sing, and chant at the players. Which does change up the game - even if for only one hole, only once a year.

What if every association had one meeting that's the 16th hole? And rather than a respectful town hall forum, encouraged the attendees to just say whatever they wanted (from their seats) or boo at will? Would it change up the game and bring them back for more?
