Rake sand traps, replace divots, and repair balls marks. Be respectful of other players on the course. Slower players let quicker players play through. Play ready-golf when necessary to speed play.
Not permitted on the course.
Many good players try to kill tee shots but when doing so they thrust their hips at the ball it causes them to drastically miss shots both right and left. Drop your right foot back some so that the toe of your back foot is even with the heel of your front foot. Practice hitting balls with this stance while gradually moving your right foot back to its original position. This will help you hit the ball further and quiet your hips.
