Golf Learning Center Etiquette & Safety Rules

For the enjoyment of all, we ask all participants to observe the following safety and etiquette guidelines. Proper golf etiquette plays a large role in the game; it’s important that even the youngest players learn to obey proper etiquette. Inappropriate behavior will result in the golfer being asked to leave the course (no refund given).

  1. Any child under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
  2. Both in practice and play always make sure that no one is near you when you swing the club and no one is ahead of you where your shot might hit them.
  3. Golfers must direct all balls at the appropriate greens only.
  4. Always stand still when another player is playing. Do not talk.
  5. Be ready to play when it is your turn.
  6. If someone else is playing from the tee, do not tee your ball
    until he or she has played.
  7. Do not tee off until the fairway and the green are clear of all golfers.
  8. Never take more than one practice swing, if any.
  9. When you are playing slowly or looking for a lost ball, ask the group behind
    you to play through (skip ahead of you) so you do not slow everyone down.
  10. Write down scores on the way to the next hole, not on the green you are leaving.
