enjoyed. It is purpose is enjoyment, relaxation
and sociability. In order to make every
golfers day better overall it is important
that all golfers become familiar with the
non written rules of the game. These rules
govern the behavior of oneself while playing
any given golf course. Etiquette does not
reflect ones score but rather (and probably
more importantly) how others perceive you
on the course and eventually how willing
others will be to play with you.
Basically etiquette boils
down to respecting the golfers you're playing
with and those who are playing behind you.

sport, it is important to understand the intricacies
