Etiquette When Golfing

Mar 17, 2014

When it comes to playing a round of golf, there are some particular manners you need to have on the course. This is known as golf etiquette. Bad etiquette is embarrassing for your entire party. Golf etiquette is a vital part of the game, so you need to be aware of the dos and don’ts when you head out for a round of golf.

When practicing your swing, never swing in the direction of another player. There may be pebbles or twigs or other matter in the grass that could fly up and injure a playing partner. Never throw clubs in anger. In addition to being rude and childish, it could also be dangerous.

Observe the safety suggestions posted in golf carts and drive carefully. Golf etiquette requires keeping your cart off the grass as much as possible.

Keep the round moving by being prepared to hit your shot when it is your turn. You probably don’t like waiting on other groups – don’t make other groups wait on you.

Always try to keep pace with the group ahead of you. If space opens in front of you, allow a faster group to play through.

Repair your ball marks on the green, and your divot marks on the fairway.

Quiet, please! Never talk during another player’s swing.
