New Golf Rules: Major Changes effective January 1, 2019
As if the rules of golf were ever easy to fully comprehend, the USGA has introduced changes to the Rules of Golf that went into effect January 1, 2019. Don't fret! These rules changes have been noted for helping make the game of golf easier to understand and more fun to play! Golfers at all levels are still trying to grasp the scope and breadth of the rules. There will be, of course, a learning curve, as players get used to and appreciate the 2019 Rules Changes. If you don't have The Official Guide to the Rules of Golf, find a chapter board member to get your free copy.
To learn more about the 2019 rules visit www.usga.org.
For a helpful, easy to understand video highlighting the 20 most important rules changes for 2019 visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chPOtfLUHC0


Our Chapter Rules Chairperson Berenice Fedder
Sometimes in golf your shot will put you in a situation you aren’t sure what the rule is. Fortunately, one of our chapter members is going to help us all understand the rules better. If Berenice doesn’t know she will find out. So, send her an email describing the situation you were in (including the course and hole if possible) so everyone can learn. We can talk about course etiquette as well (no names will be mentioned). Your Q&A’s will be put in our monthly newsletters and/or posted on our website.  Berenice’s email is bfedder121@gmail.com.

Why Education?
Golf education and player development is a very important part of the golfing experience.  Even if you are not interested in competitions, all golfers should want to improve their knowledge in some way and their golfing skills. This makes the game more enjoyable for you and the ones you are playing with. Although we might not be able to tailor or target the specific needs of every chapter member, we are committed to finding you the best options so you can achieve your goals and increase your knowledge of the game. Please familiarize yourself with these topics with the information sheet. For our chapter, Education will focus on these topics:

Golf Rules
Golf Etiquette
Golf Handicap
Pace of Play
• Golf Lessons & Clinics
Course Management
