Golf Etiquette www.golf.org.au
• Play the course as you find it and play your ball as it lies
• Play by the Rules and in the spirit of the game
• Be responsible for applying your own penalties if you breach a Rule, so that you cannot gain any potential advantage over your opponent in match play or other players in stroke play.
Please be mindful of other players, care for the course and follow the rules by:
• ensuring that nobody is in the line of play or near your swing
• not distracting players when they are addressing the ball or making their stroke
• playing at a prompt pace and without delay.
• allowing other players coming up to pass when you are searching for a lost ball by signalling the players following them to pass, and waiting to continue play until those players have passed and are out of range.
• making sure that any turf that is displaced is replaced at once and pressed down.
• carry a sand bucket at all times and use the sand to repair divots.
• raking bunkers and replacing rakes in the rake holders.
• replacing the flag stick properly in the hole before players leave the putting green.
• only driving Golf Carts in areas designated by the green staff.
