How to Stay Safe on the Golf Course

  • Mar 22, 2023

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.

Safety Tips:

·         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
