I always shake hands. To not do so would ime upon the customs and courtesies of the game of golf.

You always shake hands at the end. Just a common courtesy thing. Way ,I and most of the people I play with, were raised!!

If I ever run into a place where I have a , when I am much older, I will shake his hand too!

Everytime, whether I know them well...or just met at the beginning of play. Common courtesy

If it's just a casual round with a couple of buddies I don't usually shake hands.

If it's someone I don't know or someone I don't play with all that often I will usually take off my hat and shake hands.

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

If they are my buddies and I know them pretty well...No. If we are not buddies or I don't know them that well...Yes.

Funny how that works...

Yeah, who doesn't shake each others hands and said they've enjoyed the round? I don't think I've never NOT done so?!?!

Ha Ha! - this was like Sideshow Bob stepping on rakes. Funny, funny, slightly less funny, hilarious. Nice job.

Always. Not to the point home too forcefully, but courtesy toward fellow players is a key of the game of golf and, as Sideshow Bob observes above, you dun better don't not dun it.

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

I always shake my playing partners hands on 18 and say nice game. I am a big advocate of common courtesy and being a polite person.

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

I always shake the hand of my playing partners after the round, if you don't, it doesn't with me. (I'm sorry, it was so tempting)

Puns aside, I always like to introduce myself to anyone I've never played with before everyone tees off and shake everyone's hand after the round. Almost everytime I've played this year, I've gone out with the same guy and still shook his hand and congratulated him. I just see it as common etiquette. I've never been concerened about taking off your hat and sunglasses. Since I almost never wear a hat or sunglasses when I play, I never knew it was common courtesy to remove them at the end. I don't think that anyone is less respectful if the are wearing a hat on their head, if you offer to shake my hand, congratulate me, and wish me well in the future, I wouldn't mind if you had three hats and a pair of comically oversized sunglasses on.
