Simple Golf Rules 1. If you swing and miss it does not count as a stroke. 2. If you swing and it moves no matter if it is only an inch, it counts as a stoke. 3. If the ball goes off course, and is headed for other golfers, yell “FORE!” 4. Always replace your “Divots” • Know where your club is at all times and others • need to be aware of where your club is as well!
6. No matter if you are swinging or putting, don’t take all day to hit the ball! 7. Make sure you know if there is a dress code required
8. First shot off a hole the ball is put on a tee between the tee off markers. Who ever has the lowest score, hits first. Remember to stay quiet and stay behind the person hitting. Men’s Tee Women’s Tee
9. Second and third shots.... The player farthest from the hole hits first
