What is golf etiquette?
Golf etiquette refers to unwritten rules that golfers and golf enthusiasts adhere to in order to stay respectful and courteous while playing the game. Depending on where you are playing, there may be specific rules that you need to follow for that particular course. In general, golf etiquette should be respected by all, as it fosters good sportsmanship and consideration amongst golfers.
What golf etiquette should I follow?
Want the 411 on golf etiquette? Here’s a rundown of the do's and don'ts of golf etiquette, with more details below.
Do’s and Don’ts of Golf Etiquette
|Show up on time||Keep your fellow golfers waiting|
|Learn the rules of the course you’re playing||Assume all courses have the same rules|
|Be mindful of players around you||Distract others while they are putting|
|Be self aware and manage your emotions||Be loud and emotional|
|Watch where you step||Step on another player’s lines|
Be mindful of where you place your bag
For those walking, before you put your bag down and walk to the green, take a couple of extra seconds to put your bag in the most logical place for you to pick it up and move on to the next hole. This can save a lot of time after you're done holing out so that the group behind you isn't waiting longer than they need to be.
Watch where you stand
When looking at the ball at address, movements or positions of other golfers can sneak into your peripheral vision and this distracts most golfers. There are some places you can always stand that won't offend anyone. Here are a few options:
- Stand 90° to the chest of the golfer at least 2 yards away from his ball.
- Stand between 90° and 45° to the golfer's chest at least 2 or 3 yards from the ball.
Don't walk in a player’s “through line”
Many amateurs are unaware that a putter’s line extends two to three feet past the hole. This is essential, as if a putt misses long, the through line is where the ball will end up, and it is the path for a golfer to finish the hole out. Next time you watch a tour event, keep an eye on Phil Mickelson. He'll routinely practice a putt on the through-line side of the cup.
Maintain a good pace
The number one problem in golf today, as evidenced by the overwhelming golfer complaint, is slow play. 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.
Learn the little things
There are a hundred bits of etiquette, like laying the flagstick down carefully, tamping down spike marks when you're walking off a green, letting faster groups play through, and so on. All of these things are learned by observing, with a sharp eye and a considerate heart.
Remember that depending on where you are playing, the rules or etiquette may differ. Additionally, players should be punctual and adhere to dress codes. Know that golf has a way of returning favors, and every piece of etiquette you practice will be repaid tenfold.
Avoid unnecessary noise
Golf is hard. It is harder when you can't concentrate because there are inconsiderate people making noises during your swing. It is important that you as a golfer be aware of not only your own group but others. Golfers are expected to maintain a quiet and focused atmosphere on the course, refraining from loud talking or disruptive behavior during a player's swing.
That being said, this doesn't mean that you can't bring a rugged rechargeable Bluetooth speaker, like the G-ROK Golf Speaker, to the course! Read on to find out the best golf etiquette when it comes to listening to music during your golf game.
Music Golf Etiquette
Everyone knows that the right kind of music can get you in the zone for your game. But before you start to blast your tunes, keep the following etiquette in mind –
Find out the Rules
Even if your course is cool with you playing your favorite music while golfing, be mindful of those around you. Try not to blast your music super loud and be aware of they type of music you are playing. No one wants to hear death metal while playing a relaxing round!
