The etiquette of golf are a set of rules and regulations all golfers, either whether in competition or in social play, are obliged to follow. The rules and regulations are usually set by a golf clubs governing body and don't really differ all to much from club to club. Golf while fun to play is more than some kids game. It requires discipline and is meant to be played with respect towards other players and the sport itself. The etiquette of golf ensures that every player can play the game of golf under safe and controlled conditions. The etiquette of golf consist of the following rules and regulations:
* The lowest marker in a group is responsible for the conduct of his/her fellow players.
* No one shall move, talk or stand close or directly behind the ball or the hole when a player is addressing a ball or making a swing or stroke.
* No player shall hit until the players in front are out of range.
* When the play of a hole has been completed, players shall immediately leave the putting green. Cards must be marked before commencement from the next tee.
* The player who has the honour shall be allowed to play before his/her opponent(s) or fellow competitor(s) tees the ball.
