Golf rules and regulations are par for the course — avoid slow play, show up more than 15 minutes before your tee time, fill in divots and rake those ball marks in the sand trap. Buried in roots of regal tradition, it’s no surprise that golf owns a lengthy list of etiquette for attire, speed of play and where you can and cannot drive your cart.
Golfing in St. George, however, adds a few items to that list. In the name of protecting the landscape that oftentimes skirts national and state parks, golfers are asked to adhere to responsible travel in Utah by following Leave No Trace principles. Fortunately, the guidelines — plan ahead and prepare, dispose of waste properly, leave what you found and respect wildlife — are quite simple to follow as you enjoy your day on the greens.
