THE SPIRIT OF THE GAME

“Golf is played, for the most part without the supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective how competitive they may be. This is the spirit of the game of golf.”
Rules of Golf

ETIQUETTE

Pocket Etiquette

1. No-one should move, talk or stand close to or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing the ball or making a stroke.
2. The player who has the honour should be allowed to play before his opponent or fellow-competitor tees his ball.
3. No player should play until the players in front are out of range.
4. In the interest of all, players should play without delay.
5. Players searching for a ball should signal the players behind to pass as sonn asit becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found; they should not search for five minutes before doing so. They should not continue playing until the players following have passed and are out of range.
6. Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by them and any nearby made by others. If a rake is within reasonable proximity of the bunker, the rake should be used for this purpose.
7. Through the green, a player should ensure that any turf cut or displaced by him is replaced at once and pressed down, and that, after the players have holed out, any damage to the putting green made by the ball or the player is carefully repaired.
8. Players should ensure that, when dropping the flagstick, no damage is done to the putrting green and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing too close to the hole or in handling the flagstick. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.
9. When the result of a hole has been determined, players should immediately leave the putting green.
10. If, for whatever reason, a competitor has to scratch from a competition or change his tee-off time, it is not only courteous to the other playing partner(s) but obligatory to advise the partner(s) of any such change to the starting sheet.
