Golf is played, for the most part, without the supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration to other players and to abide by the rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be. Etiquette and integrity are the very heart of golf. You will discover that most golfing etiquettes address slow play, the most common complaint from golfers. If every golfer practices proper etiquette on the course, slow play would be virtually eliminated.
