Standards of Player Conduct
a. Conduct Expected of All Players
All players are expected to play in the spirit of the game by:
Acting with integrity – for example, by following the Rules, applying all penalties, and being honest in all aspects of play.
Showing consideration to others – for example, by playing at a prompt pace, looking out for the safety of others, and not distracting the play of another player.
Taking good care of the course – for example, by replacing divots, smoothing bunkers, repairing ball-marks, and not causing unnecessary damage to the course.
There is no penalty under the Rules for failing to act in this way, except that the Committee may disqualify a player for acting contrary to the spirit of the game if it finds that the player has committed serious misconduct.
Penalties other than disqualification may be imposed for player misconduct only if those penalties are adopted as part of a Code of Conduct under Rule 1.2b.
The Rules of Golf underwent a major change in 2019 and with that change the R&A, who are responsible for the game in the UK, Europe and other parts of world developed an excellent website devoted to the Rules of Golf and the education of those Rules. It is important for all players to understand the Rules of Golf and play by them. Please use this link to enhance and develop your knowledge of the Rules of Golf.
