Generally, it is recommended to remain civilized and respectful of the locals, and you won't have any problems. But if you want to play the loud and lousy, like our friend Trump, beware !!

I play foreign courses all the time, it's a very educational and fun experience. Different grasses, course engineering and weather make it fun. I recommend staying in ExPat hotels, (Marriott's and others) and not once have I had a problem. As long as you don't get overly drunk and make a jack ass of yourself in public, the locals an the police leave you alone and welcome you to their home land, just like we Americans do to our foreign visitors.

... but there's LOTS of great golf in America Canada as well. We are big nauons with golf variety ranging from deserts to forests to links to swamps. Home country golf is great also.

Watch your temper and your language when dealing with others in Germany. They have "insult laws," so calling someone an insulting name (like a**hole), making obscene hand signs or flipping someone off in a fit of road rage will result in charges and a fine. If you insult an officer of the court or law, that is Beamtenbeleidgung and leads to charges and a fine, if not worse. Also Germans must pass written tests covering the rules and etiquette of the game to qualify to play golf, and they expect you to know them, too. Play is very fast! After a round, you must join your fellow players for a drink. Golf is extremely expensive there, too.

I don't know that the UK would apply their laws to us Yanks but they have 'hate speech' laws. It doesn't have to be racist either....one UK citizen got arrested for calling a copper fat. He was fat but the guy still got in trouble. No real First Amendment rights over there.

While not required by all car rental agencies, it's a good idea to have an international drivers license in most of Europe. Getting pulled over and only having your U.S. License could result in an arrest. Pay special attention to this in Italy, as well as crossing the borders between countries other than the country you picked up the car.
