USGA Golf Etiquette 101
Consideration for Other Players

No Disturbance or Distraction

  • Players should always show consideration for other players on the course and should not disturb their play by moving, talking or making any unnecessary noise. 
  • Players should ensure that any electronic device taken onto the course does not distract other players. 
  • On the teeing ground, a player should not tee his ball until it is his turn to play. 
  • Players should not stand close to or directly behind the ball, or directly behind the hole, when a player is about to play.

Health Tip
Golf - for the Health of it!

The following findings are from a report by Walker Research Group: 

  • A walked 18-hole round, carrying a bag or using a hand/pull cart, is approximately equal to a 5-mile walk.
  • The total caloric expenditure for an 18-hole round is approximately 2,000 calories for walking while carrying clubs, and 1,300 calories when riding in a cart.
  • Since walking is biomechanically more efficient than running, playing an 18-hole round of golf walking is roughly equivalent to a 3.5 to 4-mile run.
  • When walking 18-holes of golf, blood glucose levels fall by up to 20% for the young, 10% for the middle-aged, and 30% for the elderly players, and body weight is slightly reduced among all age groups.
  • Repeated golf practice enhances balance control and confidence among all age ranges.
