QUICK GUIDE TO THE RULES OF GOLF
The Rules of Golf can be a bit daunting particularly for golfers who are new to the game. The R&A publishes A Quick Guide to the Rules of Golf which is a summary of the most commonly encountered Rules situations. It provides simple explanations and clear diagrams to illustrate the Rules.
As golf’s governing body, The R&A is responsible for writing both the Rules of Golf and the Rules of Amateur Status.
