Rules & Education

This couple knew they were slow, left the guy behind them a sleeve of ProV1s

By Keely Levins

This is a PSA for everyone who plays slowly, and for everyone who gets stuck behind a group that plays slowly. 
We can all agree that slow golf is the worst. There's nothing as painful as watching someone take four practice swings for every shot on their way to shooting 102. But there are a few situations that merit slow golf. The most obvious is people who are learning how to play. Whether they're juniors or adults picking the game up, you've got to cut them some slack when it comes to slow play on the course. 
That said, if you are being slow on the course, let the group behind through. And if that's not possible, do something awesome like this:

Golf Etiquette

Rules for your day at the course

What people can expect during a round of golf, from beginning to end:


  • If caddies are available
    • Remember caddie programs are an excellent way for young people to earn some money and be exposed to a sport that they can enjoy and might help shape their character 
    • A good caddie can make the round more enjoyable by giving you hints that might lower your score 
    • A good caddie can provide information on yardage, club selection, reading the greens and the layout of the course 
  • Warm Up 
    • Try to arrive soon enough to give yourself time to warm up properly 
    • Work your way though the bag, beginning with the short irons, moving onto the mid-and long irons and then the woods 
    • It's often a good idea to finish warming up by hitting a few soft wedge shots before heading for the practice green and hitting a few putts 
    • Don't hit hundreds of balls and leave your game on the practice tee 
  • First Tee 
    • Check the scorecard to learn any local rules 
    • Local rules apply only to the specific course you are playing 
    • If your playing companions suggest a match, it's a good idea to make sure everyone is comfortable with the stakes 
    • Make sure to place an identifying mark on your ball and inform the other players the type and number ball you are playing 
  • Avoid Slow play: when your group is not keeping up with the pace of play of the group in front of you 
    • To prevent: 
      • Walk at a reasonable speed between shots 
      • Begin planning your next shot as you approach the ball by studying the strength and direction of the wind 
  • When you reach your ball, check the lie, select your club, visualize your swing and shot, and then play your shot 
  • From the time you select your club until you actually hit your shot, you should take no more than 30 to 45 seconds 
  • If you aren't ready to play when it is your turn, encourage one of your fellow players to play 
  • Maintaining the course
    • Replace your divots 
    • Turf tends to explode on impact, making it difficult, if not impossible, to replace the divot. In this case, you have two options: 
      • You can use the toe of your shoe to kick in the turf around the edges of the divot 
      • Many courses often put containers of a soil/seed mixture on their carts and tees. If this is the case, simply fill in the divot with the mixture 
  • Bring a rake into the bunker with you -- remembering that you should always enter the bunker from the low side at a point nearest to the ball 
    • Whenever possible, avoid walking on the steep face of a bunker 
    • After hitting your shot, rake the area you played from, as well as all your footprints and any others within reach 
    • Rakes should be left--either in or nearby the bunker 
  • Important to repair any pitch marks or indentations caused by the ball hitting the green 
  • Using a tee, knife, key or repair tool, repair the mark by working the edges towards the center, without lifting the center of the mark. Don't tear the grass. Finish by smoothing the area with a club or your foot. Try to get the area smooth enough to putt over. 
  • Just remember that while the Rules of Golf allow you to repair pitch marks on your putting line, you cannot repair spike marks on your putting line until after you have putted

On the green, remember:

  • Don't step on your fellow players putting lines -- the imaginary line that connects the ball to the hole 
  • If your ball is on a player's line, volunteer to mark the ball 
  • If you're ball is not furthest from the cup:
    • Mark your ball, either with a plastic marker or a small, thin, dark coin such as an old penny.
    • After you have marked your ball, place your putter down at a 90-degree angle with the heel touching your marker.
    • Move the marker from the heel to the toe of your putter. Reverse the procedure to return the ball to its original position 
  • Do not stand where you might distract a fellow player and don't move 
  • Don't make any noise when your fellow player is preparing to putt 
  • If you don't have a caddie and are asked to tend the flagstick, make sure you aren't standing on anyone's line 
  • Hold the flagstick at arm's length so the flag doesn't flutter in the breeze, and make sure your shadow doesn't fall across the hole or line. Loosen the bottom of the flagstick so it doesn't stick when you try and remove it by pulling it straight up after the other player has putted. The flagstick should be removed right after the player has hit the ball 
  • If you lay down the flagstick, lay it off the green to prevent doing any damage to the green 
  • Generally, the player closest to the hole will tend the flagstick 
  • After everyone has putted out, immediately walk to the next tee 



"What's your handicap?"

It's a question often heard when golf is the topic of conversation. But what is a "handicap"? Simply put, a golf handicap is a number that tells you how many strokes over par on average that you usually play. Handicaps are an integral part of the game of golf and allow players of varying ability to compete fairly, whether in a casual golf outing or in a competition. A handicap can also help a player track their improvement over time.  Always remember:

1. You must try to make the best score at each hole
2. You are required to post every acceptable round

Adjusted Scores

If you skip a hole or don't play it according to the Rules of Golf (incl. Mulligans) you must post a score of Par plus any handicap strokes you would receive.  For example, if your course handicap is 18, you will receive 1 stroke on each hole, so any hole you do not play would be scored as Par + 1.  If you play at least 7 holes you can post a 9 hole score using this method to score the un-played holes.  If you play at least 13 holes, you can post an 18 hole score using this method. 

If you start, but do not complete a hole, or are conceded a stroke you must record the score you most likely would have made had you finished out the hole.  Scores in a Competition are generally not Adjusted until posted for handicaps.

Equitable Stroke Control (ESC)
Equitable stroke control puts a cap on individual hole scores, for handicap purposes, and keeps scores reasonable.

Maximum Score
on Any Hole 
9 or less Double Bogey
10 - 19 7
20 - 29 8
30 - 39 9
40 or more   10
