Golf's New Rules


Golf's new Rules are less than a month away.  On January 1, 2019, they will go into effect, and we'll continue to cover some of the major changes to help get you prepared for the golf season. The full Rules Book is available at www.usga.org, and also includes the Player's Edition, which provides a shorter, more user-friendly version of the Rules for golfers at all levels of the game.

Major changes to the Rules include:

How to Drop a Ball

Time for Ball Search

Repairing Spike Marks

Leaving Flagstick in the Hole

Relaxed Rules in Penalty Area
