D.O.G.S. Etiquette


As a golfing society we believe the D.O.G.S. should set a positive example.  As such we would like to share a few helpful items with everyone.


  • Strive to exceed the dress standards applied by the Golf Clubs we visit; both on the course and in the clubhouse.

  • D.O.G.S. shirts should be worn proudly.

    • If you need one please let someone on the committee know.

  • Respect the rules and regulations of the course we are playing.

  • Play at a reasonable pace; stay in touch with the group in front and do not hold up groups behind.

    • Play "ready" golf.  No need to stand on tradition waiting for furthest out to hit.  If you are ready and it is safe to do so, take your shot.

    • Be ready to hit when it is your turn.  Glove on (or off as the case may be), shot lined up, etc.

    • Take 3 minutes or less to look for a lost ball.

    • Allow faster groups through.

    • For more suggestions check out what the USGA has to say here.

  • Leave the golf course in better condition than we found it by repairing ball marks, replacing divots, and ensuring bunkers are raked either by the caddy or the player.

  • Wait for your playing partners to agree on a gimme putt.

    • Gimmes must be less than a putter grip from the hole

    • No gimmes for pars or less​​

  • Turn in every score for handicap purposes.

  • Have a good time.


  • Move or talk while someone in your group is hitting the ball (or about to hit).

  • Walk across the line of another player’s putt on the green.

  • Hit your shots until the group in front of you is well out of range.

  • Ever play when lightning is present.

  • Throw your clubs, 

    • It puts your playing partners off their game.

    • It puts your playing partners in danger.

    • It scares and puts the caddies in danger.
