When Playing...

  • Do not line up the player to the flag, or on the teeing area, or putting green. This is a 2-stroke penalty to the player. 

  • Do not step in anyone’s putting line, or their through line. (3 feet beyond the putting line). 

  • Do not touch or pick up anyone’s golf ball – unless specifically asked. (Such as a provisional ball where the original one has been found and in play).

  • You cannot suggest a golf club to any other player but your own. 

  • You can not say how many clubs the wind has, or the MPH/KMH to any player, other than your own. 


Flagstick ettiquite 

  • The player who is farthest away from the hole, putts first. 

  • Usually, the players’ caddie will be the one person to attend the flagstick for their own player.

  • Sometimes, a different caddie might attend the flagstick. For instance, the player’s caddie is raking a bunker far away. 

  • Stand on the low side of the hole, unless your player wants you to stand on the high side of the hole.

  • Pull the flagstick out of the ground about one inch and lean it against the back part of the cup.

  • Beware of the other 3 ball markers and preplan where you are walking after the player has stuck the putt.

  • As soon as the putt is struck, take the flag out and move away from the hole. 

  • Typically, the flagstick is placed on the putting green, where there is no chance of any putt hitting it. 


  • clean the clubhead after the player has hit their ball.

  •  arrive at your players ball before they do.

  • When your player hits in a bad direction – follow it until the end. Say something like “I saw it hit the willow tree mid-way up and did not see where it landed.” Or “I saw a splash and I believe the entry point was near the red stake.” Or “I see white stakes, maybe you should hit a Provincial ball.” 

  •  be ready to rake the bunker, for your player and possibly the other players.

  • Always place the bag/pushcart in between the flagstick and the next teeing area.

  • You may offer yardages

  • Repair pitch marks on the putting green, your players and one more.

  • Do not swing without looking around first. 

  • Always face the three other players when making practice swings.

  • Never chip towards cars or people, no matter how skilled.

  • The best place to stand is facing the player at least 3 feet short of parallel to the golf ball.

  • The caddie might have to hide behind the push cart to be safe. 

  • Yell “FORE” or “FORE RIGHT” or “FORE LEFT” if needed.
