About This Quiz

The sport of golf is defined as much by the etiquette of the game as it is by the actual shooting and putting. But, do you know all of the little details of golf etiquette? Could you pass this quiz that goes through all of those details? Why not give it a shot?

Since the beginning of modern golf in the 19th century, the sport has had a set of formal rules that make the game flow and work. However, it's the informal rules which have developed over the years that really define the game for everyone to enjoy. After all, golf etiquette keeps everyone on the course safe and helps protect the equipment as well as the course. If the etiquette of golf did not exist, the sport would not be the same because there would be no universal language for the different groups playing to adhere to.

Are you an expert on everything golf, though, including golf etiquette? Do you know all of the little details that allow the game to flow smoothly each day for everyone playing? If you think you really are a golf expert, then take this challenging quiz and put that knowledge to the ultimate test!
