I know it varies from club to club, but how much do you tend to tip various people?

Keep in mind all the people who you might interact with.... valet parking, bag droppers, caddies, cart returners, servers in the clubhouse...

And does your club even allow tipping? I know some places don't.

Eh. A couple bucks here, a couple bucks there. We don't go to any fancy or extremely high class courses, so the fees aren't that insane and therefore, neither is the tipping. I may give a five 3-5 bucks if they clean my clubs too, but never more than that.

I never have my wallet on me or ask for special service at the cc. So I generally tip nothing with golf. But with my weekly pizza delivery its about %25 since they know me by now and get here in 15min. Ha

I tip well but if you put the gratuity on a 6 top you get nothing but your 15% you dinged me with.

This ^

If they add it on to the bill, it ceases to be a gratuity and becomes a fee.

In my opinion.
