- Once the green reaches, drop your bags after or on a path to the next hole.
- Do not get stuck on the green to comment on your previous moves or score your scores. Do it on the way or from the next hole.
- Do not abuse the mobile phone. In case of necessity, free the place.
- If you feel that the game in front of you has a slow game, either involve the course marshal if he is on the spot, or ask with the greatest kindness that it leaves you the passage. Above all do not rush this team by playing on it, which could lead to bad mood and risk of accident.
- Especially out of competition, do not turn your ball searches into an endless treasure hunt.
- On a bad day, pick up your ball and jump the hole rather than playing a tenth shot on the fairway of one by 4.
- Keep your carts away from tee-offs and greens always on the way to the next hole.
- Never forget to pack your pitch and especially to use it.
- Keep in mind that you have come to relax ... ..
