2019 Proposed Rules changes

For those who wish to read more about the proposed Rules changes to take effect from 1 January 2019, please visit www.randa.org

There is a document covering the main changes, a list of FAQ's, plus a draft copy of the new Rules Book for you to download.

The current edition of the Decisions book, which will still be in effect throughout 2018 (despite it saying only 2016 and 2017 on the cover), will be replaced by The Handbook on 1 January 2019.

There is a feedback process at the site for your comments on the proposed changes.

It does mean the current Rules are still in play for a lot more golf until 1 January 2019, so we will be continuing with our education programme for the current Rules.
