Academy Golfers' Code

I am a golfer. As a golfer, I understand;

1: Safety

I understand that swinging a golf club and hitting a golf ball can be dangerous to me and people around me, and I must be safe at all times.

2: Honor

I understand that golf is a game of honor. I do not need referees or umpires to watch over me. If I break a rule, I am expected to penalize myself.

3: Purpose

I understand how to separate the purpose from the goal. The purpose is to always have fun. The goal is to be my best.

4: Consideration

I understand that my fun (or my unfun) must not ruin fun for others.

5: Courage

I understand that I will make mistakes. Nothing worthwhile comes easy.

6: Responsibility

And, as a golfer, I know that I do not have to be perfect. I just have to continue to work hard and be a little better today than I was yesterday.
