My name is Janet Beal and I am the BCLGA County Rules Advisor. My role is to provide support to clubs and BCLGA members about the Rules of Golf. I am available to come and talk to you about the rules and also answer individual questions.
If you would like me to come to your club, I prefer to run sessions outside on your practice area so I can demonstrate rules and how to apply them, although I can also do presentations.
If you have a rules question, or would like to talk about arranging a demonstration at your club, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the rules used when playing golf, the Rules of Golf also cover Committee Procedures such as course marking, local rules, terms of the competition and pace of play. I am available to advise clubs on any areas covered by committee procedures.
The R&A have produced an App that has all the Rules of Golf. Much easier to load the App onto your phone than carry a rules book, and the App also has a search facility and a quiz for those of you who like to test your knowledge. See here to download the App.
You are welcome to download a copy of this poster to display at your club.
There are a number of short videos provided by the R&A covering different areas of the Rules of Golf. These are aimed at beginners, but are a good reminder for everyone.
The videos are available on the R&A web site.
For those of you who are interested in more formal rules education and possibly refereeing, there are three levels of course that you can take:
We have run both a level 1 and a level 2 course in Bucks in the last couple of years. If you are interested in taking a course, please get in touch and if there is sufficient interest we can schedule a course.
We also have some people who have passed their level 2 or 3 and are available for refereeing at any of your events. If you would like to arrange a referee for an event, please get in contact with me on email@example.com and I will try to find you a referee.
