10 Rules for Good Golf Etiquette, Arnold Palmer, Golf Digest 07.027.2008
6. Make your golf cart ‘invisible’ — Leave no trace you were there. Avoid wet areas and spots heavily traveled. Golfers tend to play “follow the leader” and drive in single file. It is usually better to scatter — everyone takes a different route — so cart traffic is spread out.
7. Always look your best — Your appearance speaks volumes and a neatly dressed golfer gives the impression he/she thinks the golf course and people there are special.
8. Turn off your cell phone — Silence your phone and if you have to make or take a call, move away from the other players and keep it brief.
9. Lend a hand when you can — It is easy to help out your fellow players: look for lost balls, watch errant shots, pick up that extra club left on the fringe or the headcover dropped next to the tee, and return it to its owner after saying, “Nice shot”.
10. Learn the little things — There are a hundred bits of etiquette not mentioned, like laying the flagstick down carefully, tamping down spike marks, letting faster groups play through, and so on. Golf has a way of returning favors and every piece of etiquette you practice will be repaid tenfold.
