Been playing in a new league this year. After the 18th each member of the foursome shakes hands and says " nice playing with you" . Haven't done this much before. Do you guys do this?

Yes. -I just put that there cause I needed 9 characters...

Yes. To not shake hands would be considered very rude where I play.

Good idea haha

Also, yes I do this with kids I haven't played with before or if its in a tournament or something. I don't like the "take the hat off" thing though..

Always - it is the gentlemanly thing to do. Though I do run into the occasional A-hole who just heads for his car (usually while the rest of us are still putting out).

Yes, I do take my hat and sunglasses off. The best thing to do in life is to act like a professional whether you are or not. My grandpa always took his hat off when he went indoors, and I still do that to this day and so do my children.

I don't fault anyone who does not take off their hat though. Every person is an individual. I would get pissed if someone just took off without saying anything.

Yes and I am pretty sure that I have shaken hands after every single round of golf I have ever played, wether it was with a stranger or family member. I also take my hat off to shake 95% of the time. The time that I haven't has been about logistics (I just putted or put the pin back and someone reaches out to shake my hand).

Always. Hat off (if I'm wearing one), shake hands and congratulate them if they have won (and mean it, even if you are feeling like crap!) and comisrate if you have kicked their butts. ry not to be too condescending, though!

If it's a strokeplay three-ball, shake hands on the 18th - it's courtesy. Then clear the green as fast as you can!!

Appears that our brand of comedy is for a golf discussion board.

Most definitely. After every round. Even with people you play with every week. Basic good manners and the expected thing to do. A person would be considered very odd if he didn't.

Yep every time.

Re: Do you shake hands with your foursome on 18th green?

Yep, I think it's a nice way to end the round.
