Useful Links on the Rules of Golf

Here are some of the web sites that I have found useful in pursuing my interest in the Rules;

The R&A Rules of Golf
http://randapublic.loghar.com/flash/rules/rules_2008_2011.html
An online version of the current Rules of Golf book.

The R&A Decisions on the Rules of Golf book online
http://randapublic.loghar.com/flash/decisions/decisions.html
An online version of the current Decisions on the Rules of Golf book

The USGA Rules of Golf and Decisions on the Rules of Golf books online
http://www.usga.org/Rule-Books/Rules-of-Golf/Rules-and-Decisions/

An online version of both the Rules of Golf book and the Decisions book formatted side by side on each web page, which I personally find easier to navigate and use than the R&A site. Of course, the content is the same except for some of the spellings!

Golf Rules Discussion Board
http://golfrules.freeforums.org/rules-of-golf-discussions-and-meanings-f1.html
A friendly discussion board with a small, but well-mannered and knowledgeable group of posters. I occasionally contribute to this site as ‘999Q’.


The Leith Society
http://www.leithsociety.com/
Questions, discussion and analysis on the Rules. This is definitely, a site for Rules aficionados only. The content can be very philosophical and heavy.

The Golf Channel Discussion Boards
http://www.golfchannel.com/news/forum-announcements/welcome-to-the-gc-discussion-forums/
This site contains discussion on all things golf, including a section on Rules & Rulings. It is very American, with many inflated egos and a lot of coarse criticism.

USGA - Our Experts Explain
http://www.usga.org/rules/experts-explain/
USGA rules experts provide insight and explanations on Rules decisions and interpretations. They also address commonly asked rules questions.

And of course……

Andy Brown’s Number One Golf Blog
http://www.golfswingsecretsrevealed.com/blog/
This site is where Andy posts my answers to the Rules questions that he receives from his subscription list. Well, I think that it’s good!

I hope that this list may save you some time in finding the best resources for following the Rules of Golf.

Best,

Barry Rhodes
