Most of us have been to a mini-golf course as a kid, but a real golf course is another story. Avoiding golf ball injuries is pivotal for personal safety at a course or driving range. You want to ensure the environment remains safe for you, fellow golfers and employees. Luckily, we have compiled a list of golf course safety and etiquette to consider.
· Yell "fore" to warn others if you or another group member hits the ball toward other golfers
· Similarly, cover your head and face or take cover if someone yells "fore"
· Stand far away from the person hitting the ball
· Stay out of the ball's path
· Don't hit the ball until the group ahead of you is safely out of range
· Always check the weather – lighting is hazardous on a golf course
· Know your golf clubs and how far you can hit the ball with each club
· Wear a golf glove(s) to keep the club from slipping and prevent blisters
· Wear golf shoes to avoid falling or injuring your ankle
· Wear sun-protective clothing/hats and sunscreen
· Warm up and stretch before playing
· Do practice swings – building up from shorter clubs to longer clubs.
· Rest between rounds to avoid overuse injuries
· Avoiding throwing clubs
Golf-Cart Safety Tips:
· Stay on cart paths and avoid bumpy terrain
· Drive straight up and down hills
· Drive slowly while going downhill or around turns
· Never reverse downhill
· Keep legs, feet, and arms inside the golf cart
· Always remain seated
