Become a Referee

So you want to become a Referee?

Golf, for the most part, is played without a Referee being present. However, the Committee in charge of a competition may appoint a Referee and perhaps an Observer to accompany play or it may assign Referees or Committee Members to particular parts of the course to assist with the Rules.

People have various reasons for wishing to participate in a Rules Course, the most common one being to make themselves more familiar with the Rules, and how to apply them during a round.
