The Gentlemen’s Game

Golf is the game of Kings and Gentlemen!

The game of golf is to be enjoyed by all.  However, there are some aspects of etiquette that seem to have been lost on some golfers.  Tony Carbon of Duffer’s Digest talks about players having a little etiquette while playing golf.  I totally agree with his views.

Etiquette is an integral part of golf!  The unwritten rules of replacing your divot, fixing your ball mark on the green, raking the sand trap (properly), waiting until the group in front of you is out of range, waiting for your turn to play, not talking while others are shooting and respecting the honors on the tee are all designed for you and others to enjoy their round of golf.

Most, if not all, etiquette rules are not written down.  However, they are as important as the actual rules.  Proper etiquette allows everyone to enjoy their round of golf because despite what most people think – – it is not all about them!

I hope everyone enjoys their time on the links this weekend.  I am a grateful golfer.

    Thank you so much for the mention! I’m grateful for fellow bloggers like you! Sometimes etiquette is more important than the rules themselves. If nothing else just for the respect of your playing partners!
