Most Members will be aware of a radical change to the rules of golf with effective from 1st January 2019.
The modernisation of the Rules was initiated to ensure that they are easier to understand, to promote pace of play and to make the game more attractive and accessible for newcomers.
The current rules booklet will be replaced by a Player’s Edition of the Rules, an abridged user-friendly set of the rules with shorter sentences, diagrams, commonly-used phrases and written in the “second person, i.e. “you may…” etc.
There will also be a more thorough version of the Rules made available, not unlike current rules booklet, but with illustrations.
In summary, the number of rules will reduce from 34 to 24, achieved by combining similar rules and removing irrational ones. You can expect about 30 major changes among which the following are samples:
Members are encouraged to visit the R&A and USGA web-sites for full details but are reminded that the current edition of the Rules of Golf must be applied for the remainder of 2018.
