Some Basic Golf Rules And Etiquette You Should Know Before Playing

Before entering your round in the golf course, be sure to know some basic golf rules and etiquette. If not, you do not know how to act on a course. Thus, it is extremely important to identify these.

Bring the right equipment
Get the proper equipment to the course requires rules and etiquette. The rules display a limit of 14 clubs in each bag of the golfers.
You can have many clubs as you want to, but you should not borrow the golf clubs from your partners. The best way is preparing your own golf clubs up to 14 clubs on your bag.
On the one hand, you should also have some tees and golf balls in your bag as you are the only one to understand your comfort.
Make the tee time
Why should you have the tee time? Although the tee times are not required, it is not a bad idea to have one. In these tee times, you will have many opportunities to warm up yourself with a golf club and the ball path as well. You enable to have a tee time by contacting the golf course and book it beforehand.
Follow the dress codes
Several golf courses have their dress codes, so you should ask or read the information on their websites to know and appropriately dress thereafter. Pay attention to the pants and shirts as each personal course have different codes.
With a pair of shoes, have them with soft spikes to protect the green surfaces. They do not require accessories, but you need to bring yours such as a pair of gloves, sunglasses, golf bag, golf balls, and a golf rangefinder.   
The best golf rangefinder is a smart investment to support you hit the holes easily.
Do not touch or move the balls
You just use a club to hit the ball into the holes only. Do not touch golf balls or move them in the other positions that have been fixed before. On the other hand, you should not pick the balls up when you are not sure the balls on the putting green or not.
Keep pace with the speed
It is quite difficult to require new players keep up their speed in the courses, but they should practice the technique and their skill to build up their speed. Separate groups with similar skills and levels are a good idea. By doing this, experienced golfers do not annoy about the speed of a round and starters do not pressure with the game.
Tackle water dangers
It is not fun to hit the ball through water hazards. In general, water dangers always marked on the golf course. So, you should keep an eye on yellow stakes, red stakes, and lines which pointed out water dangers.
In this case, you should aim the hole carefully and switch your swing in order to avoid these water dangers. If you do not have the experience to solve, then you should ask for help from advanced players or try to find out what they do with this problem.

Though everyone can play golf, most of the golfers will not show their right reacts on the golf course when they ignore some basic golf rules and etiquette. For us, we often find out the rules and how to play before coming to the course.

Golf Is Not Only For Men

The opinion that golf is only for men is no longer true when the non-professional golf tournaments for women was first held in the UK in 1895. From then, the number of female golfers has increased significantly with excellent shots that many male golfers could feel surprised and envy.
According to Asian Golf Association’s report, female golfers account for 45% of the total golfers in the South Korea, 25% in Japan and 10% in Vietnam. These figures are predicted to go up in the recent years. Many people think that even the number of female golfers has become bigger, but it is not good in quality.

If these people have such thought, they will find they are wrong totally if they have chances to observe strong, nice and really eye- catching swings hit by female golf players. Take Michelle Wie a typical example, she is too familiar with golf fans because of her skil…


I’ve spent money heavily to try motivating my son and my daughter to play golf. I took my son to a junior golf camp a few years ago and bought a “Hello Kitty” club set for my daughter, who loved it but never used even once. These got me thinking that how it actually costs for a youth to be into the game. It’s not much expensive to start playing golf; but when you dive into the game, it will be another story to think about. Long time ago, the best way to get a youngster into golf was to become a caddie (person who supportively carries the equipment for someone else playing golf), but the golf carts have done that job very well.
