Rules

The R&A website is an excellent place to start your re-education with an abundance of information readily available. This link https://www.randa.org/en/rulesequipment/rules/rulesmodernisation will take you to the relevant page on the R&A website. Here you can find the rules books, official guide, committee procedures and much more to help you prepare for the changes as a golf club.

Some excellent educational videos can be found on the R&A YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPaAMxYPZcI–dBs7Ah-OsZGPSETG_Zjq, showing demonstrations of some of the new rules and procedures on the golf course.

You can also download the new rules app to your phone on both Android and IOS. There are rules quizzes both on the app and on the R&A website which are a really useful way of testing your knowledge and getting to grips with some of the scenarios you may soon be faced with on the golf course.
