Good Golf Etiquette Tips

Updated: Jun 12, 2021


  1. Dress Code. Respect course dress code whether in the range, training, practice round, full round, or a competition - most golf courses require compliance with their dress code.

  2. Silence is golden and don't be a distraction. As a courtesy, do not move or make any noise when a fellow player or someone close to you is setting up, swinging, putting, etc.

  3. Play at a reasonable pace. Take your time, but not too much and don't make people wait more than a few seconds for you to swing.

  4. Watch where you stand, do not obstruct other players' line of sight and if possible, stand behind them.

  5. Respect the green. Don't walk on putting lines. Greens are for putter only

  6. Keep the course looking nice. Repair divots and rake the sand in the bunkers after your shot. Repair ball marks, replace divots and rake bunkers.

  7. Lost ball etiquette. As per the revised rules, only spend a maximum of three minutes looking for lost balls

  8. Play in the right order. The honor system states that the player with the lowest gross score on the previous hole gets to tee off first. After teeing off, the player whose ball is farthest away from the hole plays first. In match play, the player with honor is the person with the lowest net score will tee off first.

  9. Follow cart rules (especially winter or wet season advisory) and course repair guidelines.

  10. Losing the game can be frustrating, but losing your cool is significantly worse. There will always be a loser but it's not the end of the world.


Golf etiquette exists both to promote awareness, as a courtesy and to show respect. Please respect any special instructions related to the weather, health, safety, environment and the community, including local laws and regulations - these are typically for our collective welfare as responsible members in the community.

Finally follow the rules as laid out and administered by The R&A and the USGA including Updated guidance on Covid-19 and Rules of Golf.
