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 (see Handicap page)
• Pace of Play
• Golf Lessons & Clinics
• Golf Management
• Code of Ethics
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
