Press Release Body: Yuba City, CA - To help you keep up with proper golf etiquette, here are a few tips from the golf experts at Points West Argo.
"The game of golf is challenging, fun, and organized all at the same time," notes Tom Tomlinson of Points West Argo. "However, to make the game easier on participants and more pleasant for all, golfers keep in mind certain loose rules, or etiquette."
1. Swing Safely When practicing your swing, be sure to practice as safety as possible. It's easy to get a little carried away and throw up rocks and dirt when practicing your swing, so face away from other golfers and at a fair distance.
2. Tee on Time Be on time to tee on time! Golf is often run on a tight schedule and being late for your tee off can alter everyone else's schedule as well as make you seem careless.
3. Mind your Neighbors Before beginning your game it is courteous to make sure the players before you are completely out of range. This is for safety reasons just as much as courtesy reasons.
4. Give Warning If you are about to make a swing that could hit someone you can or cannot see, it is both kind and appropriate to yell a little warning. The traditional and most recognized word is "fore", pronounced "four".
5. Drive with Diligence When driving a golf cart, drive carefully and safely about the course. Make sure to take notice of the courses particular rules and restrictions on carts and follow them soundly.
6. Practice Pace Keeping up a good pace during the game is kind to your present company as well as golfers behind you. You wouldn't want to wait on the group before you every time you came to a hole either, so think ahead on which club to use.
7. Clean Up Ball marks and Divots are inevitable in the game of golf, and not a problem as long as you're considerate enough to repair them before you move on to the next hole. Also, properly replacing the flagstick when leaving a hole is greatly appreciated.
8. Out of Line It is considered rude to step in another golfers line (the line is an invisible line between the golfers ball and the hole), and should be avoided at all costs.
9. Quiet is Key Most golfers enjoy silence when hitting, and appreciate your cooperation. Talking between hits and traveling between courses is fine, but try to stay silent while others are in play as it is a standard courtesy in golf.
10. Make your Mark Mark your ball when you arrive, so even if other balls are nowhere close, you know it won't be in the way. It may seem like a nuisance, but it's worth not having your ball knocked or another players hit altered.
