    Golfing Manners - What you should know about golf

    Golf Etiquette

    Golf is a dignified game of rules and manners, and
    itís important to know the basics before you play for
    the first time.

    Whether you are playing alone, in a twosome or a
    foursome, you must wait your turn. You must keep aware
    of the group on the next hole and wait until they are
    well ahead of you before hitting your ball.

    Itís never cool to "push" the group in front of you.
    If you are playing with others, wait for your turn to
    hit the ball; never hit at the same time as another
    player.

    While you wait for your turn, go to your ball and
    determine what club youíll need and how you are going
    to hit it. This is called "ready golf" and keeps the
    game moving. Donít rush, just be ready.

    If your team is holding up the players behind you, let
    them play through. You would simply wave them through,
    or if they are close enough, ask them if theyíd like
    to play through. You will never make an enemy in doing
    this!

    When someone is making a shot, you should be behind
    them and you shouldnít make a sound! It is so
    distracting to be ready to tee off and just as you
    pull back, someone decides to jingle in coins in their
    pocket or noisily unwrap a piece of candy.

    Replace your divots. When, in the fairway, you hit the
    ball and a clod of dirt and grass goes flying, replace
    it. On some courses you just put the clod back and
    step on it to press it on; on most courses, there is a
    sand/seed mixture on your card to put into the divot.
    If your ball makes a deep impression when it lands on
    the green, use your divot tool to repair it.

    As soon as you have completed a hole, replace the flag
    and leave the green so that the next players can play.
    Count your score and write it on the scorecard when
    youíre back at your cart.

    Of course, there are many more rules of golf, but
    these simple ones will enable you to get through the
    course without coming to blows with anyone. We must
    all keep the game dignified, right?
