    A golfing education

    It's stableford NOT stapleford

    Only illiterate Americans 'game' clubs

    The first 9 holes are the front 9 and the 2nd 9 holes are the back 9. I have no idea what your 'frontside' is and you sit on your 'backside'

    We start a hole from the tee or teeing ground not the 'teebox'

    Feel free to add your own and remember, this is just a bit of fun

    ...those do it for me! and...

    - There is no event called "The British Open."
    - If you "Airmail" a green, how do the Post Office get it on the scales?
    - Can tall players "short-side" themselves?
    - Is it a "sand trap" if you can still get to the green 200 yards away?

    This one gets on my moobs. Until recently, we had tee boxes on our tees, marked with distance, stroke index etc. They originally contained sand which was used to tee up the ball before the advent of wooden & plastic tees. People who use this expression rarely know what they are referring to.

    Re: A golfing education

    People who shout "fore right!" or "fore left!" are imitating the television, where players have a gallery & spectators need to know which way it goes. In the kind of golf we play a simple "fore!" is enough to get everyone ducking.

    Yeah the right/left thing is never helpful. You spend 15 seconds trying to work out which direction the shout came from and where you are standing in relation to them, and by that time the ball has already clocked you on the head. Just shout 'fore' and everyone ducks - simple.
