Golf’s new Rules have been published by The R&A and the USGA ahead of coming into effect on 1 January 2019.
In order to help members understand the new rules the club are having a new rules night plus quiz on Wednesday 13th Feb 2019. Details will be available nearer to the event.
For the first time, a new Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf is being introduced to provide a shorter, more user-friendly version of the Rules for golfers at all levels of the sport. This version, which will serve as the primary publication for all golfers, features:
– A more intuitive organisation with ten simplified topical groupings
– A “Purpose of the Rule” description at the top of each Rule, to better define why the Rule exists
– Easy-to-follow, full-colour diagrams and charts
– A simpler, more direct writing style.
Pick up your complimentary copy from the club.
