New Rules of Golf Workshop 24th October

Ramside Hall Hotel (17:30 - 20:30).


The Rules of Golf are changing on 1 January 2019 - and we want you to be in the know and all geared up from the start.

To help you go into the New Year with confidence, England Golf is working closely with The R&A to make sure that you have all the knowledge and skills you need.

We are running a number of workshops across the country this autumn, hosted and presented by England Golf’s representatives.

These sessions will provide details of the new Rules of Golf and explain how they will impact your golf club and your members.

We expect places to be highly sought after and they will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

The session will run from 5.30pm to 8.30pm, with refreshments and registration at 5.00pm.


Please note: Places are limited to three delegates per club so ensure you agree in advance who should be attending from your club.
