Rules Corner

In 2012 the R&A and the USGA began the process to modernise the Rules of Golf to ensure that the rules were easier to understand, would apply for all golfers and would make the game more attractive and accessible for newcomers.

The new modernised Rules of Golf were implemented on 01 January 2019, and some important revisions were introduced from 01 January 2023.

The R&A have got the latest Rules on-line, and they launched a Rules Hub  and also a Rules of Golf App to provide answers to the many issues that arise in the game.

You can even test your knowledge of the rules with the R&A Rules Quiz.
