*TIPS TO SPEED UP YOU PLAY
·        ALWAYS CARRY A SECOND BALL.
·        DON’T FIGURE YOUR SCORES AT THE GREEN; DO IT AT THE NEXT TEE.
·        WHEN SHARING A CART, TRY TO PARK BETWEEN SHOTS AND HAVE EACH PLAYER WALK TO HER BALL.
·        NO SEARCH PARTIES, MEANING THE ENTIRE GROUP DOESN’T NEED TO PURSUE A LOST BALL. LET THE PLAYER AND ONE OTHER LOOK WHILE THE REST LOCATE THEIR BALLS AND PREPARE TO PLAY.
·        IF THERE’S DOUBT ABOUT A BALL BEING LOST, PLAY A PROVISIONAL TO AVOID HAVING TO GO BACK TO REPLAY THE SHOT.
·        CURB YOUR PRE-SHOT ROUTINE IF IT INCLUDES EXCESSIVE PRACTICE SWINGS. THE PROS DON’T NEED EIGHT PRACTICE SWINGS; YOU DON’T EITHER.
·        ON CART PATH-ONLY HOLES, TAKE MULTIPLE CLUBS TO YOUR BALL.
·        START READING YOUR PUTT AS SOON AS YOU WALK ON THE GREEN. ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO READ A PUTT IS FROM THE LOWEST PART OF THE GREEN. START THERE AND WORK TOWARD YOUR BALL.

GOLF COURSE TIPS*
We want to learn to play better golf and hit better shots. There is one skill in the game that does not take any talent – etiquette. These simple guidelines will keep you in good favor with your fellow playing competitors.
 
KEEP UP
KEEP QUIET
BE SAFE, BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE
CARE FOR THE COURSE
 
KEEP UP: Fast golf is fun golf and you don’t have to be good to be fast.
·        Putt out your tap-ins – every time.
·        Take two clubs with you from the cart so you don’t have to make an extra trip when you realize the wind direction has shifted.
·        Always pay attention to your fellow golfers. Don’t make noise while they are hitting.
·        Write down your scores when it’s NOT your turn.
·        If you cannot see the group in front of you, your group is behind pace of play. 
KEEP QUIET: Knowing when to chat and when to play is important.
BE SAFE, BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE: 
·        The safest place to be is to the rear and on the “belt-buckle” side of the player and at least 6 feet away. Any of the other three quadrants are susceptible to sculled shots, shanks and flying equipment.
·        Pay attention to your fellow golfers’ shots.
·        Never stand on or behind the line of a shot, especially on the putting green, and be aware of everyone’s position on the green before accidentally stepping on their line.
CARE FOR THE COURSE:
·        Try to leave the course better than you found it.
·        Rake bunkers. 
·        Leave the rakes on the outer edge away from the green.
·        Repair divots. When you sand divots, smooth the sand over with your foot to make the ground smooth to allow a ball to roll through the divot without getting stuck.
·        Repair ball marks by replacing the middle of the ball mark with the surrounding healthy grass. You should be pulling in the grass, not lifting up.
