First, does anyone use this board? I find it strangely quiet given that we're well into golf season!Now on to my point:I took up this wonderful/horrible sport within the last couple of years. I'm now getting to the point where I'm invited to golf outings and have begun to take clients golfing. As such, I still don't know some of the proper etiquette, not regarding the actual game so much as the pre- and post- round behavior. Typically, I golf at public courses, but I have twice been invited to private clubs as part of a 'scramble'. I have a few specific questions, and would welcome any other related (or not) insight from those who have more experience that I. 1. Who tees off first? The guest or the host?2. How much do you tip a caddy? Does the host tip on behalf of the guest, or should the guest offer?3. What kind of tip should I give a caddy that just rides along in your cart fixing divots, etc(I've heard this person called a 'fore caddy')?4. When the beverage cart comes around, is there an etiquette to tipping? eg, in an event where your fee covers the beverages, is tipping expected?5. Who buys beverages in the clubhouse after the round? Host? Winner? Loser?6. Is there a real rule for mulligans, or just follow the lead of the guest?I'm sure there are more issues that haven't come up yet....please feel free to share thoughts, anecdotes, etc.Thanks,-Snack
