I came across a blog by Cory Janzen, Superintendent of Westmount Golf & Country Club in Kitchener, Ontario. He had some great information to share about etiquette on the golf course and I wanted to pass it along to everyone. Cory says……
One thing I notice in my travels around the course is that we seem to have three different types of members with regard to care for the course:
Type 1 is the member who takes great pride in the care of the course. This member will fix his or her ball mark and three others. You won’t know that they have even been in the bunker after they have finished raking it. Divots are always replaced with great care and you will see this member instructing others how to properly complete these tasks.
Type 2 is the member who makes an effort but falls a little short. His or her ball mark repairs will leave a little scar; there will be an effort to rake the bunkers but the results aren’t perfect. Divots are replaced but with no regard to fit them in the way they came out.
Type 3 is the member who does nothing. He or she either doesn’t know the proper etiquette or chooses to ignore it.
