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?

Always. Just common courtesy. I don't understand the taking the hat off though... never seen anyone do that other than the pros ( I do take my hat off indoors though)

But..... just like marking the scorecard, we generally do it as we leave the green, not just standing there in the way if there is a group waiting in the fairway behind us.

With good friends, no. With work buddies or strangers, yes. I don't think I normally take off my hat.

Every time I play.Hand shake or fist pound especially if the group isn't headed to the 19th hole as me =)

Every time. I have a long story that I could insert here>>> Let's just say for now that I played one, count 'em ONE hole with a group on the 18th. And shook hands with all three of them, like we had played together all day.

I'm loving these golf puns.

Agreed regarding the courtesy idea, but the poor

between these puns and the topic require quite a back on topic. step is to focus on said topic. ;)

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.

Fishes,

I shake hands with people I don't know well, or just met, but not with my regular group....we usually grab a beer and settle the bets. P.S. Love your avatar! Nice Bow!

I always take off my hat and sunglasses to shake hands with my playing partners on 18. I also always remove my hat before walking indoors to the pro shop, but it seems that almost nobody has manners enough to do that anymore.

If im playing with fellows ive never met before, then i will shake hands and thank them for the round. If i play with guys i usually play with, i just say "gimmie my money!" and walk away from the green with my middle finger up.

Don't usually shake hands with my regular group unless there was a match or someone that needs a congratulations - we usually go straight to the bar from the green anyway.

Anyone else, absolutely.
