Etiquette is important on the green to ensure everyone enjoys their golf game. Follow these tried and tested golfing tips to avoid making an easily preventable blunder.

Do:

  • Be ready to play when it’s your turn.

  • Award the honour on a given tee to the player with the lowest score on the preceding hole.

  • Pay attention to the group behind you.

  • Help the greenskeeper out: replace divots, repair ball marks and smooth footprints in bunkers.

Don’t:

  • Talk while someone is playing a stroke.

  • Hit until you’re sure that everyone in your foursome is behind you.

  • Park golf carts near greens, trees or bunkers.

  • Hang around the green filling out your scorecards after everyone has finished putting.
