SOME POINTS ON THE ETIQUETTE OF GOLF
You, and the people who play with you, will enjoy the game of Golf much better if you follow thesesimple rules of etiquette:-
1. Don't move, talk. stand close to, or directly behind the ball, or the hole when a player is making a stroke.
2. Don't play until the match in front is out of range, but don't delay your own game.
3. If you are overtaken by other players while you are looking for a lost ball, or because of your own slow play, call the other players on, then wait until they are out of range before you continue your own game.
4. Fill in all the holes and footmarks you may make in the bunker sand, and see that any divots you may cut, are replayed and pressed down.
5. Don't damage the greens - marks made by your shoes, or the flagstick, may deflect well aimed putts, and as greens are often rather soft, stand well away from the cup and hold the flag so I that it does not mark the green.
6. When you have finished putting. don't loiter on the green; there are other people waiting to play.
