Competition Rules of Golf Tournaments

New Rules of Golf – Competitive Players Session April 16

The rules of golf were substantially revised effective January 1, 2019. There have already been a few highly-publicized incidents on the professional tours regarding application of the new rules.

Golf Manitoba wants to assist any golfer who may play in one of its event to have a practical understanding of how the new Rules affect competitive play. We invite all competitive players to join us for a free Player’s Rule Session at the Glendale Golf & Country Club on April 16, from 7 – 8:30 pm.

The objectives are to provide you with the key changes to the rules, how to avoid problems, and to answer any of your questions. We will have Golf Manitoba “referees” (that is the new name for “rules officials”) conducting the session.

Please email the Golf Manitoba office at or call 204-925-5730 to RSVP your attendance.
