Underground Golf Psychology
As golf is a sport which is played without an umpire or referee, the players themselves are responsible for making sure that the game is played fairly and according to the rules. This is one of the main reasons why golf is regarded as gentlemenís game. Golf etiquette however extends beyond just playing the game, and obeying the rules, but also includes how you interact with other players, and showing courtesy and consideration for other golfers.
Conduct of the players
Players are expected to maintain self-discipline at all the time. Players are expected to be polite to and considerate of other players, even if their own game is going badly. Generally speaking, golf players must show sportsmanship whether they are winning or losing.
As with all sports, when playing golf, safety should be a prime concern.
Golf is the game which requires lots of concentration. Distractions which can put off other players, and spoil their concentration or enjoyment of the game, are not appropriate for the golf course.
The pacing of the game
Usually there are no clear rules about how fast you should play golf, or how fast you should progress around the course. That said, you need to play at a pace appropriate for other players, and take into consideration their needs too.
Balls do get lost when playing golf, so how this situation is handled also needs to be considered. If you lose your ball, itís no fun for everybody else to wait around for a long-time while you hunt for it.
In summary, most of the rules of golf etiquette are simply based around commonsense, good manners, and thinking about the needs to others. Playing the game as it is intended, in a good and friendly spirit will make the game enjoyable and interesting for everyone in your group.
