Yes, there is a two shot penalty for giving or asking for advice during a round of Golf. This includes things such as what shot to hit, or what club to hit, and telling your playing partner the read on the green. The only exceptions are telling where the pin is, or telling how the wind is blowing. You can also give advice to your playing partner if you are in a team competition together.
