Rules of Golf 2019

General Club Noticeboard : Rules of Golf 2019

Most of you will be aware that the Rules of Golf have been updated effective 1st January 2019, new summary guides are already available in the clubhouse.

The four presentations below highlight the main changes, showing practical examples of how the new rules should be implemented. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to understand and apply the new rules from 1st January 2019, if you have questions please either pass them to me and I will coordinate a response as quickly as possible or check with someone in the Pro shop.

Part #1 : New Terminology & New Principles

Part #2 : Areas of the Course (Teeing Area & General Area)

Part #3 : Areas of the Course (Bunkers & Putting Green)

Part #4 : Areas of the Course (Penalty Areas & No Play Zones)

Link here to a 10 minute YouTube video that highlights the new rules

Similar information will also be placed in the clubhouse & locker rooms, please do not remove these copies. If you would like a copy of the presentation material I can send that to you.

Note that we recently added a local rule to our scorecard, this related to options available from 1st January when taking a stroke & distance penalty. However, England Golf has since decreed that this option ONLY applies to social golf and is NOT to be used in competitions.
