Rules of Golf

Improving your game is not only buying the latest equipment, getting golf lessons or practicing all day long. You can also reduce your handicap by knowing the rules of golf. With the help of the R&A (Royal and Ancient) website, you are now able to check any rules of golf which applies to the game.

On this page you can find:

- An introduction to the R&A
- Quick guide of the Rules of golf
- The Rules Explorer
- The Equipment Rules

Introduction to the R&A:
The R&A assumes responsibility for the administration of the Rules of Golf with the consent of 141 organisations from the amateur and professional game, and on behalf of over 30 million golfers in 126 countries throughout Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.

As golf is a self-regulating game, all golfers should have a good understanding of the fundamental Rules, as contained in this guide. However, this guide is not a substitute for the Rules of Golf, which should be consulted whenever any doubt arises.
The basics of the Rules are not as hard to learn as you may think. They would include, for example, from where play of a hole commences; what to do when your ball is in a water hazard, lost or out of bounds; interference from immovable obstructions such as cart paths; and playing a provisional ball.
Why learn the basics? Aside from the fact that it is important to know the Rules of the game that you are playing, and to ensure consistency amongst players, a knowledge of the basics will enable you not just to get round the golf course incident free, but it may save you one or two precious strokes in the process.
