R&A Rules School

R&A Rules School

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Rules School with the R&A, we are delighted to confirm that the next Level 2 course will be held in St Andrews with a provisional date of 18-20 March 2015.

The School is run by qualified instructors from the R&A, SGU and SLGA, all with experience of refereeing at some of the world’s most elite amateur and professional tournaments.

This three-day course, cost TBC, seeks to develop and enhance your knowledge by guiding you through Rules 1-28 and outlines the importance of the defined terms used in the rule book.

The course is open to golf club officials and members of an affiliated golf club within GB&I, as whether you’re an expert golfer or a complete novice it is important to have a good understanding of both the rules and etiquette of golf. The course provides an insight into the rules by using practical demonstrations, question and answer sessions and interactive DVD presentations.

The course is made up of both seminars and practical demonstrations covering the fundamentals of match and stroke play. These include: playing the ball as it lies, dealing with relief situations, water hazards, ground under repair, obstructions, balls lost or out of bounds.

A starter pack is issued to all successful candidates, including a copy of the Decisions on the Rules of Golf 2014/2015, and practice papers to help with preparation.
