i know what is like to be 'avoided' like plague when i first started golfing. even if we (newbie, beginner and not-so-beginner) cannot remember every rules, the least we can do is to practice basic golf etiquette on the course. this will definitely make the game more enjoyable for us and less vex for the experienced golfers.

this is something i found, for our reading pleasure.

Maintain a Good Pace
• Keep the round moving by being prepared to hit your shot when it is your turn. You probably don't like waiting on other groups - don't make other groups wait on you.

• The player who is away hits first in a group. However, in friendly matches (as opposed to tournament play), this rule can be ignored in favor of "ready play" - players hit as they are ready. All players should agree to "ready play" before it is put into effect.

• Do not spend too much time looking for a lost ball, particularly if there is a group behind you ready to play. If you insist on taking the full five minutes alloted in the rulebook to look for lost balls, golf etiquette says wave up the group behind to allow them to play through.

• Always try to keep pace with the group ahead of you. If space opens in front of you, allow a faster group to play through.

• When two players in a cart hit to opposite sides of a hole, drive to first ball and drop off that player with his club, then drive to the second ball. After both players hit, meet up farther down the hole.

• When walking from your cart to your ball, take a couple clubs with you. Taking only one club, then having to return to the cart to retrieve a different club, is a huge time-waster.

• Always leave the putting green as soon as your group has finished putting.

And a Few More Golf Etiquette Hints
• Quiet, please! Never talk during another player's swing.

• Do not yell out following a shot. Even if boisterous behavior doesn't bother your playing partners, there are other people on the course who may be within earshot.

• Be aware of your shadow on the putting green. Don't stand in a place that causes your shadow to be cast across another player or that player's putting line.

• Never walk through a playing partner's putting line. Your footprints might alter the path of a partner's putt. Step over the putting line, or walk around (behind) the partner's ball.
