Rules Changes in 2019: What You Need to Know

Dec 14, 2018

As you may or may not know, the Rules of Golf have undergone an overhaul by the USGA and R&A, with the  changes slated to go into effect on January 1, 2019. There are a lot of changes this year, from  dropping at knee height to putting with the flagstick in, so it's time to make sure that you're educated  and ready for these new rules when they go into effect next year.

The USGA and R&A have created some great videos that go over some of the bigger changes and things that everyday players are sure to encounter on the  course. We encourage all of our players to peruse these videos to see some of the changes that are in store for 2019.
