Look at the top 5 Aussie golfers vs top 5 Aussie tennis players.
And by the way, junior tennis is worse than pro tennis.
And also by the way, pro golf n this country is doing way better than pro tennis.
Hats off in the clubhouse, strict dress protocol, teach the kids course etiquette and course management by good example.
Let kids make a bit of noise here and there on the course and make sure they leave with a smile on their face, not that hard

I draw the line on players bringing their clubs/bag into the clubhouse.   In fact I recall challenging the person.   ;)

Hats off inside the clubhouse is a given for both sexes and is a simple etiquette to follow.

 

Men not wearing hats indoors goes way back to attending church and religion. Women wearing hats in church is/was expected and even a fashion statement.

 

Respect and good manners are something that has diminished within our society over the past 25 years.

 

I'm always uneasy when out to dinner in a reasonable restaurant and someone has the trucker hat on

( usually slightly sideways ) in the dining room for a meal.

With respect, I gave you the reasons. I've seen clubs thrown, clubs broken, bags thrown into lakes etc. Most of those kids don't make it because golf at the highest level is about temprament and building a score. But even if a hot head makes it to the big time the "stadium" golf is played on and the way it is telecast means the bad behaviour is not shown by the telecasters. Tiger is one of the most fined players in PGA history but it rarely makes it to the night time news. Tennis is played in an ampitheatre where spectators can watch a player argue with the umpire or yell at their coach the whole game. Robert Allenby spent most rounds abusing his caddy but all we see on telly is the good shots he plays. 

In terms of the golf vs tennis argument, tennis in Australia has one of the biggest tournaments in the world yet golf can't even get it's own players to come home to play in our tournaments. I think golf could learn a few things from tennis.

When did Robert Allenby play good shots? Did you record it?

I think Australian golf is producing more world class golfers than Australian tennis is producing world class tennis players.

And the most recent crop of mens world class tennis players appear to be deeply troubled individuals.

Even Lleyton was a volatile brat in his youth, as was pat Cash before that. Pat Rafter was the exception.

However, all the recent top golfers we produce seem very stable.

Day, Scott, Leishman, Cam Smith, couldn't get a better set of ambassadors for the game and all competitive on the world stage.

The Australian Open tennis tournament survives because it was anointed a grand slam ages ago. If it was not a grand slam event it would be suffering a similar fate to its golf counterpart

No sunshine in clubhouse so no need to wear a hat.

What if you are a hatsman?

Then you'd need to learn some manners.

Hats off in the clubhouse... simple.  I don't think anyone would take offence if they were approached and politely informed,, " Mate, you may want to take the hat off inside as it is a club thing that anyone wearing one inside has to shout the bar."  I remember being told this once when I was a youngen just starting out after a social round and it has stuck with me ever since.

 

If they do arc up, p iss em off.

That’s cos golf is a gentleman’s game and a gentleman would never cuss in public, unlike those overpaid tennis players that play under roofs cos it’s too hot or too wet, whereas golf, played on all kinds of environmental conditions.
