Newsletter November 2018
The R&A has produced a ‘club presentation’ which is now available to anyone who wishes to conduct a brief and basic presentation on the 2019 Rules. It is recommended that this presentation be conducted by someone with a good level of knowledge of the new rules, preferably someone who attended the EG workshop at Aldwickbury Park. A copy of this club presentation can be obtained by contacting email@example.com
Clubs are likely to need to rewrite their own local rules in the light of the new Rules. R&A guidance on model local rules is available on the R&A website:
In addition, the R&A’s Committee Toolkit, available from mid-November, will provide suggested abbreviated versions for use on scorecards. Hertfordshire Golf will be offering support with this issue once we have seen the toolkit.
The "Rules of Golf" and "Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf" books are now available to order free of charge on the R&A website. You simply need to pay for postage: shop.randa.org/rules-products
The more comprehensive "Official Guide to the Rules of Golf" is also available on the R&A website. It will be published in printed form in November but can currently be pre-ordered from sellers such as Amazon.
