Consideration

The overriding principle is that consideration should be shown to others on the course at all times

Honesty & Integrity

The game relies on the honesty & integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the Rules.
Safety

1. Players should ensure that no one is standing close by or in a position likely to be hit by the club, the ball or any stones, pebbles, twigs or the like when they make a stroke or practice swing.
2. Players should not play until the players of the group in front are out of range.
3. Players should always alert green staff nearby or ahead when they are about to play a stroke that may endanger them.
4. If a player has played a ball in a direction where there is a danger of hitting someone, he should immediately shout a warning. The traditional word of warning in such a situation is "fore".
Consideration for other players - Avoid Distraction

1. Players should always show consideration for other players on the course and should not disturb their play by moving, talking or making any unnecessary noise.
2. Players are encouraged not to bring any electronic device onto the golf course. If it is absolutely necessary, all such electronic devices must be switched to vibration mode so as not to distract other players.
3. On the teeing ground, a player should not tee his ball until it is his turn to play.
4. Players should not stand close to or directly behind the ball, or directly behind the hole if on the putting green, when another player is about to play.
5. On the putting green, players should not stand on another player's line of putt or when he is making a stroke, cast a shadow over his line of putt.
6. Players should remain on or close to the putting green until all other players in the same group have holed out.
Scoring

In stroke play, a player who is a maker should, if necessary, on the way to the next tee, check the score with the player concerned and record it.
Pace of Play

1. Players should play at a good pace. It is a group's responsibility to keep up with the group in front. If it loses a clear hole and it is delaying the group behind, it should invite the group behind to play through, irrespective of the number of players in that group.
2. Players should be ready to play as soon as it is their turn to play. When playing on or near the putting green, they should leave their bags or carts in such a position, which will enable them move quickly off the green and towards the next tee. When the play of a hole has been completed, players should immediately leave the putting green.
Lost Ball

1. If a player believes his ball may be lost or is out of bound, to save time, he should play a provisional ball after he has declared the same to the other players.
2. Players searching for a ball should signal the players in the group behind them to play through as soon as it becomes apparent that the ball will not easily be found. Players normally have only five minutes to search for their balls subject to local rules and the current circumstance of any slow play.
3. Having allowed the group behind to play through, they should not play until that group has passed and is out of range.
Priority on the Course

Unless otherwise determined by the Committee and the Golf Club, playing priority on the course is determined by a group's pace of play. Any group playing a whole round is entitled to pass a group playing a shorter round.
Care of Course

1. Bunkers
Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by them and any holes nearby made by others. If a rake is within reasonable proximity of the bunker, the rake should be used for this purpose.
2. Repair of Divots, Ball-Marks and Damages by Shoes
Players should carefully repair any divot holes made by them and any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball ( whether or not made by the player himself ). On completion of the hole by all players in the group, damage to the green, which are caused by golf shoes should be repaired.
Prevent Unnecessary Damages

1. Players should avoid causing damage to the course by repairing divots when taking practice swings and should avoid hitting the head of club into the ground, whether in anger or for any other reason.
2. Players should ensure that no damage is done to the putting green when putting down bags or the flagstick.
3. In order to avoid damaging the hole, players and caddies should not stand too close to the hole and should take care during the handling of the flagstick and the removal of a ball from the hole. The head of club should not be used to remove a ball from the hole.
4. Players should not lean on their clubs when on the putting green, particularly when moving the ball from the hole.
5. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before players leave the putting green.
Conclusion: Penalties for Breach

1. If players follow the guidelines above, it will help making the game more enjoyable for everyone. If players consistently disregard these guidelines during a round or over a period of time to the detriment of other players, it is recommended that the Committee consider taking appropriate disciplinary actions against the offending players. Such actions may, for example, include prohibiting the players play for a period time or in a certain number of competitions. This is considered to be justifiable in terms of protecting the interest of the majority of golfers who wish to play in accordance with these guidelines.
2. In the case of serious breach of Etiquette, the Committee may disqualify a player or even consider relinquishing his membership of the Society.
