Rules & Tools

The four area Rules Seminars were presented in March, 2022, to over 250 WNHGA members. These seminars included Rules, Team Play and Marker information which is very useful during the competitive golf season.

We encourage you to use the tools you will find here to present some or all of the videos used in these seminars to your club members. The videos are easily accessible and you can follow along with the agenda which answers most questions which may come to mind.

The Rules of the Month button to the right brings you to the NCGA site and has some interesting questions and answers which may be useful to local Rules Chairs. I encourage you to scroll through and choose the months as they update this regularly.

We hope some of these tools will help you and your Rules Chairs at the club level.

Feel free to contact me if there is anything we can do to make Rules more fun and memorable for your members.
