Top tips for good golf etiquette

05 June 2016


Golf is a great way to spend a day, but it’s important to know the rules, but what are the top tips for good golf etiquette? Perhaps even more significant is understanding some of the unwritten golf etiquette guidelines there to make the game more enjoyable and safe for all participants.

Top tips for good golf etiquette

.

Don’t lose your temperHallmark Hotel Cambridge - Golf (28)

Golf can be a frustrating game, but sulking, loud swearing and throwing golf clubs is not the behaviour expected from good golfers. It’s only a game, after all!

Replace divotsWelcombe-Golf-Course-5

If your club gouges divots in the course, be sure to replace them. Good golf etiquette dictates that before you exit a bunker, make the area nice and smooth for the next player.

Dress accordinglyHallmark Hotel Cambridge - Golf Shop

Many golf clubs have dress codes, but even those that do not have explicit codes expect players to dress well.

Don’t distract other playersWelcombe-Golf-Course-4

Answering your phone just as your opponent is about to take a difficult putt is understandably frowned upon. Good golf tips suggest switching off your phone until you are back in the clubhouse. Avoid distracting other golfers by walking into their line of play. It’s also considered bad manners to practice your golf swing when others are about to take their shot.

Don’t be too slowHallmark Hotel Cambridge - Golf (33)

Golf is not a quick hectic game, but you need to move around at a reasonable speed, especially if there are other groups of players behind you waiting for their turn at the tee.

Be punctualWelcombe-Golf-Course-1

Respect other people’s time by not showing up late for your game. If you have booked a lesson with the professional, it’s also expected that you arrive on time.

The clubhouse

Bragging about your winning golf score at the top of your voice will not be appreciated!
