I figured I'd start a thread, for the opposite scenario.....Euros coming to America. I'll start off the list of dos and don'ts...please feel free to add1) As previously mentioned, don't go wearing that goofy Union Jack gear....its just as bad as Americans going over there with flags all over their clothes.2) For the love of God, please don't start singing the "Ole ole ole" song. Its bad enough we have to hear it every two years at the Ryder Cup.3) Do purchase sunscreen when you get here. You pasties are going to need it, and be liberal when applying.4) Remember to drive on the right side of the road....pun intended! 5) Leave the Tie and jacket at home, I can't think of anywhere you would possibly need it......6) If caught late at night driving around in a big city, use loads of caution...the bad parts of town will suffer no one, even lost overseas visitors. That's all I can think of for now. Fortunately Americans aren't as fussy over the little things.....
I think you mean Brits. The rest of Europe drives on the right and is broadly aware of the sun
Nobody cares what type of socks you wear.

Some clubs in Montreal are even stricter and require knee socks.

You don't need a jacket and tie for dinner at Pine Valley or Chicago GC any more? Packing will be so much easier in the future.
Make sure you religiously record every score from every hole and post every round as fast as you can. Banish any thoughts of playing golf without keeping and recording a medal score. When playing a private club, please remember that you are a guest and act accordingly. You not a "vistor" that booked a tee time online using PayPal. Make sure your group understands the standard flirtations expected of them with the cart girl. Learn how to stay engaged and focused on the course after 3.5 hours and up through the fifth hour when you will finish. Make sure you tip often and with largesse as we all know Americans that work in the golf industry don't make a living wage unlike those from overseas.
Kalen why buy sunscreen when golf clubs have buckets of it in the locker room?
Adam and you forget under Ms Sturgeon many Scots have a passionate dislike for the English.
