Friday evening Cat & Dog had only a few teams participating and players enjoyed a surprise visit from Ted and Kathy Noirfalise.  Everyone was thrilled to see Kathy out and about.  The evening was lovely with a wonderful breeze and there is a lot of shade around the course to enjoy on warm summer evenings.

10 Rules for Good Golf Etiquette — Arnold Palmer, Golf Digest, 07.27.2008

  1.  Don’t be the slowest player — Play “ready golf” (hit when ready, even if you aren’t away) until you reach the green, be prepared to play when it’s your turn and never search for a lost ball for more than 5 minutes. Encourage everyone to move quickly enough so you are “keeping up with” the group in front of you.
  2. Keep your temper under control — We all have our moments of frustration, but the trick is to vent in an inoffensive way.  I often follow a bad hole by hitting the next tee shot a little harder — for better or worse.
  3.  Respect other people’s time — Always make your tee times and show up for your lesson with the pro a little early.  Social functions are no exception.
  4. Repair the ground you play on — Fix ball marks, replace divots and rake bunkers (make the area nice and smooth).
  5. Be a silent partner — Stand still from the time a player sets himself/herself until the ball has left the club.  Never walk in someone’s line of play.  The first thing to note when you walk onto a green is the location of every ball in your group, then steer clear of their lines to the hole.  For example, position yourself directly across or at a diagonal from a player setting up.  Never stand on the line of play, either beyond the hole or directly behind the ball.
