This differs from the rules of golf, as ETIQUETTE defines certain standards of behavior that make the game of golf more pleasant for everyone.
The club’s dress code requires that all golfers wear a tucked-in Jr. Golf Shirt, with slacks, or shorts within 6” of the knee, and golf or tennis shoes. METAL SPIKES ARE PROHIBITED.
Prior to playing a stoke or making practice swing, the player should ensure that no one is standing close by or in a position to be hit by the club, the ball or any stones, pebbles, twigs or the like, which may be moved by the stroke or swing.
Respect the Course:
1. Repair all divots — tee boxes and fairways.
2. Repair ball marks on greens.
3. Rake and smooth sand bunkers before leaving.
4. Avoid damage to tees and course in taking practice swings.
5. Use assigned teeing areas.
6. PROTECT GREENS: do not drop bag, wheel carts, drag feet or throw down flag stick.
7. Remove ball from hole with your hand, not your putter head.
8. On greens, mark ball with small round object.
9. No honors on tee — first one ready (except in competition).
10. Watch each other’s balls to avoid lost balls.
11. When you have finished a hole, move off the green to count strokes.
12. Do not talk or move about when a player is playing a shot.
13. Do NOT play your shot on tee or fairway until those ahead of you are out of
14. If you lose a ball, do not hold up the course. You have five minutes to look.
15. Scoring parents — please keep carts away from green and avoid soft spots; keep
carts on paths and 40 feet away from greens.
16. Keep up with the group ahead of you; be concerned about SLOW PLAY.
17. Be courteous, a good sport, and keep emotions in control.
