Rules Seminars

Seminar

How would you like to shave some strokes off your game? Guess what? We’ve got a golf rules seminar for you!

Seminars review key elements of the Rules of Golf and Decisions Book. The format consists of lectures using Power Point over the first two days with an optional exam on day three. Participants are encouraged to review the text of the Rules of Golf prior to the seminar for the optimum experience. Each day will begin at 8 a.m and conclude at 5 p.m. The exam starts at 8 a.m. and finishes at 11:30 a.m., followed by a review of test questions. Plan to stay for the review as it is an excellent learning tool. The post-exam review will finish by 1:30 p.m.

All attendees must make their own hotel and travel reservations. It is advisable to make hotel reservations early.
